President Donald Trump

Good news! President Donald Trump is pushing for a 15% corporate tax cut and substantial tax cuts for individuals. That means more money in your pocket if you're a business owner. Trump's tax reform means more cash in your refund checks -- if you're lucky enough to get a tax refund.

Bloomberg.com reports President Trump is meeting with Congressional leaders to iron out the details of his tax reform plan that will be released as soon as Wednesday.

Trump is reportedly “very determined” to stimulate the economy to achieve sustained economic growth of 3 percent or greater. “The tax plan will pay for itself with economic growth,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Mnuchin told reporters that Trump’s principles will include a “middle income tax cut,” and cuts in business taxes as well as “simplification” of the code so most Americans can file taxes on a postcard.

Reforming the tax code was one of the president's campaign promises.

    Tax cuts always cost us in the end. Then the Democrat who has too fix the mess has to correct it.

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    Idk how tax cuts are good news Sandra lol I thought he wanted to modernize America's infrastructure? How are we going to pay for all this stuff? Roads, education and wars are not cheap. Keep thinking tax cuts are sweet lol

  • Anunnaki

    " if you’re lucky enough to get a tax refund."

    "walks of Kicking ughhh"

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    We'll see.

    It's awe inspiring how patient you moral Trump supporters are.

  • A D N

    I welcome more money back into my small business so I can invest into expansion. Another positive mark for Trump!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True and interest rates are on the rise which means it costs the government more to borrow.
    Some people don't understand.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Shekinah is now claiming that she was beat by her bf (like I said).

    Corporate tax cut, hunh? For big corporations or small businesses. There's a difference...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Sure you do sweetie.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    When's the last time the rebuplicans ruled during a thriving economy???

    We'll wait for the answer. Regan, you'll sa . But when since??

  • A D N

    Sarcasm? lol. To what part?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But Reagan tripled the debt and W doubled it and left with a net of zero jobs added during his eight years.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Businesses expand when there is increased demand not tax cuts.

  • 2brefrank

    Am I the only one that gets nauseated looking at our presidents face. We went from a good looking president to an awful looking president...my geesh! God don't make mistakes, so I'm convinced Trumps hate filled lifestyle has led to his terrible head lol !!!

    To the topic. I'm not sure if this is beneficial at all, but i'm no political genius.

  • A D N

    Nah, I was talking about the high taxes I have to pay. Just cut a check!!!

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Well... why are middle Americans so confused? What are they so unsure about?

  • Elevated Soul

    Now that is my PRESIDENT!!!.....Smart people will support President Trump because he's about the people!

    Dumb people will still shout and pout because he doesn't support the globalists.Dumb people will still pout even if his policies,benefit them because they are too zombie to support,what is good for them.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If you believe that Trump is for the 'people' then you aren't smart.

  • reggie moore

    Tax cuts for big corporations mean they can hire more people....this is what president Obama tried to do for years but couldn't get any support from the republicans. ..

  • A D N

    I think people support what best represents them overall. People have different interests and ambitions and presidents can not represent every thing for every body. Where health care is the primary issue for some, gun laws for others may be, or abortion. It varies per voter.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    ES:Dumb people will still shout and pout because he doesn't support the globalists

    So you believe that protectionist tariffs are the answer which increase the costs of consumer goods which leads to lower consumption and a downward spiral in the economy?

  • Phillybruh

    Tax cuts will not make room for them to hire more people, they will pocket it and make due with the employees they already have.

  • JV

    I was just going to say, this is arguably something a Democrat would've done. House Republicans will not be feeling this: The loss of tax revenue will cost about $240 billion a year .

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Hiring more people doesn't innovation is happening.

  • rachel

    This is GOOD. I am feud with the corporate tax rate at 35%.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Demand forces companies to hire not tax cuts, but since the end of the Great Recession companies have been buying back their stock with their profits instead of hiring more people.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Why yell is bold font? Are you trying to convince us or yourself??

  • Phillybruh

    So the President with his hands in businesses all over the globe doesn't support globalism or he's just a damn good con man to convince you he doesn't!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That's not the effective corporate tax rate though.

  • Elevated Soul

    Obama isn't good looking at at all to me! Politics is too serious to be focusing on the "superficial"...

    I believe all of you who are on the "Alt-Left" get tired of President Trump,but thank God, more people felt otherwise.

    There is nothing hate filled except the phony SJW's that go around beating up people who are on the right.

    Your last sentence pretty much tell the tale because as you stated,"You are no political genius". You sound like another ignoramus that has no business discussing politics.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    While his sons travel on American dime closing deals....

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Let's see if it gets passed.

    Other than his supreme court justice, Trump has been a lame duck president. His signature has mostly slashed ... no innovation.

  • Phillybruh
  • Nikki Minor

    What about the middle class sandra?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Corporations have so many deductions and loopholes they can take advantage of that they rarely pay 35% as their actual tax rate.
    Many of them end up paying less than 10%, even zero sometimes.

  • Elevated Soul

    Obama didn't try to anything but be worshiped....

    The success of President Trump doesn't have a d@mn thing to with "old procrastinating Obama"...Obama was all about the "Gay Agenda"....

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Thank you. That will be more money roll up up to the bosses, CEO's and rich shareholders. Most of it wont trickle down to the little guy.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We will get stuck with the bill by paying more taxes and having fewer services.

  • JV

    Meanwhile, Trump's first pick for national security advisor and a key member of his campaign is about to become a boiled lobster:

    -- "I see no data to support the notion that Gen. Flynn complied with the law," Chaffetz said, referring to whether Flynn received permission from the Pentagon or the State Department or that he disclosed the more than $45,000 he was paid for a speech he gave to RT-TV in Russia

    .....

    Oversight investigators also revealed last month that Flynn had received $530,000 for work his lobbying firm did that, according to the committee, likely benefited the Republic of Turkey."

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/25/politics/michael-flynn-house-oversight-committee/index.html
    Always something to read at work with this administration, I'll say that.

  • Elevated Soul

    You don't know what a Democrat would've done,because they didn't do it....LOL!

    Bottom line is that partisanship on both sides of the aisle that hurt the people.

  • Lucy

    Didn't Reagan try this? Trickle down economics. Remember how that turned out.

  • Elevated Soul

    Your point has no validity because you reference FAKE NEWS aka CNN.....

    Savvy minded people with political knowledge, know CNN aka Fake news is an arm for the globalists, as well as the Democratic Party.

  • Phillybruh
  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    This is why Flynn wanted immunity to testify before the Senate and House Intelligence committees.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Thank you. If a person has a solid point to make, they don't need to shout at everybody else in the room to make that point.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Funny seeing these black people riding so hard for Trump, as if they think Trump and his people really care about our issues.

  • JV

    I see. So, you're telling me that there is no house oversight panel investigating the administration's links to Russia -- in particular David Flynn? Did House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz and ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings not just not just release this information to reporters on capital hill this morning?

    Here's a link from the Washington Examiner stating the same thing: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/oversight-committee-no-evidence-flynn-reported-russia-payments/article/2621203

    Here's Yahoo, same thing: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/house-oversight-chairman-ive-seen-160623531.html

    Excuse them. Their in the sunken place

  • goat

    The last thing corporations need is tax cuts.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Yup. I remember when the Central Park 5 got exonerated by DNA evidence,but Trump still wanted those black men kept in jail.

    I don't know why anybody takes anything this man says seriously.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Politics man, I swear.

  • MissHarlem

    He took out a full page ad in the paper back then to vilify them. Couldn't fck with him since.

    Perfect response.

  • MissHarlem

    Heyyyy boo ?

  • Renee26

  • MissHarlem

    I can't take orange turd or anyone who dck rides for him seriously. It's comedy. I been sitting back and sipping tea since Jan 20th

  • goat

    What's good boo?!?! I'm over here cooling.

  • We Can Do This

    Especially when they have full use of the taxpayer's military to protect their resources for maximum profits.

  • We Can Do This

    Right. He has a deep rooted hate for black males of any kind. His daddy and pappy taught him that.

    Off topic, I bet he has a micro-penis like Hitler was said to have which in turn would fuel his hatred towards black males.

  • speakinmymind

    Shut that UNelevated demon down!???

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    True. But we have to take him seriously with the North Korea thing though. If he pushes that man's buttons the wrong way and takes things too far, he could get us into a war and millions could end up dying.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Check.Mate.
    Drop them receipts!

  • sunni_daze

    Funny the news said on GMA it was a tax cut for corporations, and it was more than the Repbublicans initally asked for. This is not a working man tax cut its a rich mans tax cut.

  • sunni_daze

    They don't.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    The only thing elevated about her is the level of drugs in her system. ?

  • MissHarlem

    He will and that's his agenda eventually. Writings been on the wall unfortunately. He personally on a financial level gains from war. This is the beginning to what's necessary.

  • MissHarlem

    I'm just geeked to see your font lol. I'm currently on a smoke break due to a tooth extraction. Pray for a sista ???

  • 2brefrank

    LOL You shouldn't get so worked up in your bold italics. Our new president makes me nauseous. Always has but I never had to see and hear of him on a daily basis. I don't stan for Obama but he was at least not nauseating to look at. TO ME!!! Everyone has opinions lol

    I personally don't think Trump is a total failure with some of the moves he's made, i just don't like to look at him and i don't think he's kind. You and Sandy can call everyone alt left because they don't agree with you. I'm actually Alt Jesus if we wanna be real He's' the only side I'm standing on and the only One who makes complete sense to me.

    Furthermore! I can discuss whatever i want. I am 100% grown and am authorized to chime in where ever i feel the need to ma'am. I own this IP address and Disqus allows me to blog about my ideas! It doesn't have to fit your standard of thinking in order for me to do so. Elevate your mind body and spirit by relaxing.....

    Speaking of sunken place.......I love that Childish Gambino song on Get Out.
    I will (with a bit of shaming) say I slept on him, but not anymore.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He still wants those and all other black men in jail.

  • 2brefrank

    See, now that i can agree with...he went HARD for that agenda.

    Don the Con got caught promoting Club Med overseas. Pay for Play calling it the winter White House. State Department removes promotion of Trump's Mar-a-Lago. The Associated Press
    _________________________________________________________
    The U.S. State Department has removed its promotional posting about President Donald Trump's Florida resort, after a storm of ethics criticism Monday. In an April 4 blog post that was republished by several U.S. embassies abroad, Mar-a-Lago was described as "Trump's Florida estate," where he has hosted foreign leaders."By visiting this 'winter White House,' Trump is belatedly fulfilling the dream of Mar-a-Lago's original owner and designer," the post said. Left unsaid: Mar-a-Lago is part of Trump's business empire. After his election, the resort doubled its membership fee to $200,000. The State Department said late Monday that its intention was "to inform the public about where the president has been hosting world leaders" and that it regrets "any misperception." That statement now appears in place of the original blog post. The White House did not respond to questions about whether it had any involvement in the original posting or the decision to take it down.

  • Lucy

    Well... I guess s/he shut you down! We will give you time to go to Faux News for a comeback!

  • EMILY POST

    Tax cut for the working...

  • hottlanta

    Dump ain't working he is playing golf while he pimps the government for his weekly vacations.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    So he tried it and got caught, just like he always does.

  • Mbailey

    We have also been confronted with Trump’s vast family business, from which he continues to benefit even though the decisions he makes in office affect the what he earns, and the almost certain decisions by foreign governments to curry favor with him by bestowing benefits on his business. He shrugs off such conflicts – even refusing to release his tax returns, even inviting his daughter and son-in-law, each with their own businesses and conflicts of interest, to join him at the highest reaches of the White House.

    Some presidents have profited from their presidencies after they leave office through large speaking fees and book contracts. But never before Trump have we had a president for whom conflicts of financial interest during his presidency are flagrant yet ignored.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Amen!!

  • Mbailey

    He's really getting stuff done. I'm more than pleased with President Trump's performance.

  • dontgetblocked

    Tax cuts mean more jobs created.

  • dontgetblocked

    It's sad to see what CNN has become. They're a biased unreliable source. Might as well be the National Enquirer.

  • Lucy

    For all the black people still standing by this administration. Trump said he would budget money for Urban Infrastructure but he is considering more than $6B cut to HUD.

  • EMILY POST

    Has the democrats provided any solutions yet to anything? The Dumbocrats just pretend like their is no problems going on... switch focus and do a lame Trump joke maybe nobody will notice.

  • dontgetblocked

    Yes. Tax cuts do lead to job creation. However, Obama's agenda was not the economy. It was social issues such as gay marriage. That will be he weak ass legacy. President Trump is ending the North Korea threat, working on healthcare and building a strong economy. He truly is making America great again.

  • dontgetblocked

    He was and is the gay former president. The so-called first black president did nothing substantial for Black America but he made sure the gays could get married in every state. Hmmm. Wonder why.

  • dontgetblocked

    He's doing an excellent job.

    Corporations can create jobs without Tax cuts. Take a look at some of these Executives pay per year, look at some of the profits these companies earn per year. They don't need tax cuts, they just need to stop being so fcuking greedy.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He was on with Don, saying that President was so classy during his recent speech because he is taking a cue from Bush on how to behave respectfully and as a leader.

    HOW PARIS? HOW? Bush couldn't even teach President Obama how you properly hold a book.

    Between him and Jason Miller, KellyAnne and Sean have some competition.

  • hottlanta

    The Republicans are in CONTROL just like they wanted to be and they haven't passed not one piece of legislation.

    Although Democrats are simps in some cases, simply because they tend to want to work and play nice with others............They have way more ideas than the repunants, thus why your burnt orange leader....just copy and paste and tweak on occasion.

  • hottlanta

    Dump must be writing him some good checks. Paris was on Roland Martin and they got a brother on there from Howard University that is sooooo tough with his knowledge and I for one time really felt sorry for him. I felt like I needed to be Vanzant to put his head in my bosom. It was brutal.

  • hottlanta

    Yep all Dump is doing is copying and pasting what Obama did and people applaud him signing executive order rolling back regulations where we gotta drink brown water and breathe bad air, Did you hear this morning the UN has Saudi Arabia which was involved in 9/11 and a oppressor of women over the women's council for women's rights. Folks are going bananas. Yet Dump didn't put them on the ban list because he just opened up a hotel there. He called the dictator in Turkey because he as a hotel there as well. Our allies are saying what is he doing and he is the only world leader who contacted him. Dump will not go to war with a country he has business ties in.

  • hottlanta

    Robert Reich is the man.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    I really want to understand how people let politics get them to a place where it's okay to say things like "Dumbocrats". The whole point of politics is that there will be different schools of thoughts, opinions and parties, why is it hard for people to be respectful of that? Ultimately it's not that serious, if you were one of the movers and shakers of this country, you will be busy making things happen and have no time to comment on here. Simmer down.

  • hottlanta

    How can people be respectful of Dump when he has purposely and blatantly been disrespectful of others. Saying he purposely grab women by the cat calling people murderers, etc, etc. Yet he is suppose to represent the U.S. on the world stage.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I read that she said that he did it all the time. That he had beat her azz right before she appeared on the Real. Like RIGHT before.

  • hottlanta

    Now why if a black person says that President Obama was President for black folks, other folks get mad and say he is the President for all people not just black people. Yet folks like you always say he did nothing for the black community specially.

  • hottlanta

    I forgot to ask. How much are you contributing toward that Mexican wall he promised yall during the campaign. Because Mexico ain't gonna pay for it and Dump had to take it outta the spending bill for trying to shut down the government before he plays golf this weekend. Start a GOFUNDME page for the wall. Dump ain't gonna pay for it outta his pocket.
