    Ron Paul Just Exposed How the New 'Tax Cuts' Will Actually 'Hammer' the Middle Class

    Please read this and discuss it.

    However, the bill also has some serious flaws, the worst of which is that it adopts the chained consumer price index, or chained CPI, which Paul described as “the most insidious tax.” He noted that chained CPI increases the inflation tax, which hurts Americans because instead of taxing real wages, it taxes “the illusionary gains in income caused by inflation,” and the government then uses chained CPI “to adjust tax brackets pushes individuals into higher tax brackets over time.”
    As The Free Thought Project has reported, in addition to the controversy over the content included in the tax bill, there have also been questions about why Congress wanted to pass it so quickly. Earlier this month, members of the Senate reported that they received copies of the massive bill, just hours before they were expected to vote on it, and some of the pages included illegible hand-scribbled amendments in the margins.
    For the record, I didn't know where to put this. So please don't give me a warning or ban me over this.

    Anyway, I thought that this would prove for an interesting discussion.

    Interesting comments from the former Congressman. Thanks for posting this! I liked him very much. I think he had some great ideas. Some wacky ones too, but he's a very smart man. I agree with much of what he says here.

    Probably General Political Discussion would have been a better venue for this since it's not media bias, but the mods won't ban you for this. They may just move the thread.

    I imagine one of the mods will be moving this to the Economics subforum in a bit. You could send a private message to one of them to try & speed the process along.

    The Media keeps hammering how the tax breaks are going to be so good for business and playing down the downstream impact of payback and its affect on lower income, Middle class taxpayers. This bill will bite Repubs on the ass for the forseeable future and they have only themselves to blame. Now if the electorate can be offered some unrented politicians in elections, perhaps we can prevent facism/corporatism in the USA. The price of Corporatism is the same as the price of politicians. We're screwed.

    I don't believe so. More and more people are getting fed up with the system. I read not too long ago that three fourths of millennials want a third party.

    I looked at the sight. It looks like this might belong in the "Conspiracy Theory" part of the forum.

    “Inflation tax” refers to holders of cash who lose value due to inflation. Ron’s off his meds again.

    Economics does not work in a vacuum or one thing at a time. It is composed of many moveing parts with many out comes .
    I admire JFK for his most admirable achievement - bedding Marylin Monroe!
    When Democrats are out of options, they make everything about race.
    American students want to be "happy". Chinese students want to rule the world.
    It's hard to match the burning, visceral hate a liberal can bring to bear.

    I think that should be done by a case by case basis and only if what's being discussed is an actual conspiracy theory. This isn't a conspiracy theory; this is Ron Paul's take on the recent bill.
