Asheville and the Dark Tax Bill
How will Asheville fare with the 2017/18 tax bill?
Stunning Non-Partisan Report about the Darkest Republican Tax Bill Ever | The stunning, shocking and hair-pulling Washington Post headline published on Nov. 16, 2017, "Senate tax bill would cut taxes for the wealthy and increase taxes on families earning less than $75,000 by 2027" will have most middle-class Americans screaming for economic justice. Yet the Republicans have mostly turned a deaf ear to what middle-class Americans need. The recent report released by Congress's official non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation is a bombshell of truth about the proposed tax bill. It exposes how the rich will get richer at the expense of the middle class and poor. It explains how the middle class will pay more taxes to support the tax cuts for the wealthy under the GOP's current tax bill. Furthermore, just how Americans are going to react to Trump's Republicans new tax bill, should it pass as the new law of the land, will likely be ugly — that is, in Trump-speak, VERY VERY ugly — for GOPers who are up for election in 2018 and 2020. | More>
