    The new Tax reform will make taxes simplified, most people will be able to file their own taxes on a single page. Big cuts on the way, but not for the rich. Say good bye to places like H & R Block. Americans spend about 6 billion per year on tax help.

    The republicans are so used to being obstructionists, that they are completely unable to get anything done. It goes without saying that a party in control of the presidency and both houses of Congress should have no trouble passing anything they want.

    But the republican party has retreated from the American people. Bills, instead of being openly debated and worked out by our elected representatives, are now designed in secret by a few old men who then expect everyone else to do their bidding.

    And they are baffled when it doesn't work.

    It's time for change.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    You have some good points.

    I don't really understand why they want to collapse some of the brackets. To me more brackets are better because they will be more specific to the level of income people are making. Sure it's simpler but it seems like there are better ways to simplify.

    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    His plan, what I like and dislike.

    Getting rid of the estate tax is great.

    Cutting the corporate tax is good, should be 0%. but any cut is better than none.

    Doubling the standard deduction is very good.

    Eliminating the deduction for the state and local taxes..bad idea.

    The problem is, they have until the 30th of September to pass the bill on a straight majority vote. After that, it won't be possible.

    So it's dead for the foreseable future.

    It's the usual problem. Cutting taxes is popular. But ballooning the deficit is poisonous; it's a huge delayed tax increase, to be paid down the road.

    And while the corporate tax is too high, the experiment in Kansas showed that cutting business taxes won't necessarily cause businesses to employ more people. And that is what causes the huge budget shortfall in Kansas.

    The other approach, as you suggest, would be to somehow raise taxes on someone by eliminating substantial deductions to pay for it. Under Trump's plan, the wealthy and powerful would get a huge cut, and the middle class would be expected to pay for it.
