Tax Calculator Compares Tax Plans


As could be expected Trump and Cruz have massive tax cuts... especially for the rich.

Of course, the calculator is overly simplistic and doesn't distinguish between earned and unearned income which currently gets a massive tax break.

1. Good information for those few who think Trump is to the left of any Democrat on taxes.

Thanks for posting this, eniwetok. And welcome.

2. thanks

And as far as anyone who thinks Trump is against free trade... if one visits his website https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/us-china-trade-reform there is NO mention of withdrawing from any of these trade deals. He's a free trader that believes US wages are too high and must be lowered so we can better compete. He later changed his tune

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/11/donald-trump-wages-215812 but then he lies at the drop of a hat.

But for him to say that the current Minimum Wage should not be changed is outrageous. If the 1968 MW were merely adjusted to inflation it today would be &10.95. MW wage workers and all those between $7.25 and $10.95 are subsidizing the rest of the economy. A full time MW worker should today be making $7300 more a year.
