    $150k phase out for families isn’t even middle class in SF, LA or even OC or SD. Trump hates tax payers in expensive blue states

    1: The democrats signed off on this as well, so they also hate them.
    2: Not anyones fault but their own they chose to live in remarkably overpriced cities.

    But sure, Orange Man Bad.

    You must not follow a lot of my posts. I’m just pointing out that this is another hit to moderates and conservatives in pricey blue states much like SALT.

    I know what Trump is doing and it’s dickish but the demon’s seeking to destroy the economy and serve political interests in a time of need is despicable... even for them who are the lowest forms of life.

    Ha, read the post above but be sure that the middle+ income flight occurring in CA, IL and NY will only get bigger in the years to come. I’ve got 10 more years until retiring in AZ, FL or TX.

    Those hilarious state and local pensions will go boom.

    You’re making that statement about a bill negotiated by Schumer and McConnell in the Senate.

    Besides, If the limit was set at 350k the TDS mobs would bitch that it was too much.

    Don't blame Trump. Blame Democrats for over-pricing the average person out of existence in those areas. Ironic considering Dems are supposed to be for the working class. It must be one of those "I'll fight for you, just don't live near me" things. You see that with Dems and homeless people. Talking shit is easier than actually following up.

    Does anyone know what year’s income the 150k family threshold is based on?

    True, but the bill is shit on many levels. Using 2018 tax returns doesn’t really capture those impacted now. It’s also quicker for mass defaults in pricier areas, also a more severe domino effect.

    I’m against UBI and nearly every socialist idea ever, but in this case I think a sliding scale based on 2018 returns with the cap being $750k makes more sense. But again, the poor are better at stimulating (by wasting money on shit they don’t need) the economy.

    2018 if you haven't filed 2019 yet. If you have filed, it's 2019.

    I believe this is 2018 as they are extending filing dates for 2019. Me and my wife filed independently so I won't be eligible for shit (income maximum) , her barely, but we had a kid in 2019, so I wonder how that would impact us if we were eligible to the $500 per child that didn't appear in 2018's tax filings.

    Hopefully these corporations will finally get a savings account. If the airlines have to cancel some flights next year during a winter blizzard they will come calling for some money. True Capitalism corporate welfare should never happen. Too bad the Trump Lickspittles give more shit to people getting food stamps than corporations getting bailed out twice in less than 13 years.

    there is very little capitalism in big blue cities with high costs of living and a ginormous discrepancy between rich and poor. Safe to say that those that get rich in these blue areas have a huge helping hand from government....
