At every income level, there’s a boost to after-tax income

By and large, Americans of all incomes will benefit from the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act that House Republicans have offered.

But some by a lot more than others.

That’s according to analysis done by Ernie Tedeschi, an economist in the Obama-era Treasury Department now at Evercore ISI. He used the Open Source Policy Center tax model to score the impact.

The numbers show that at every income level, there’s a boost to after-tax income.

And at every tax bracket, there are winners and losers. Tedeschi’s model shows 91.51 million winners and 25.44 million losers after the first year.

@Patrick - it looks like "Include Image" is broken, I tried to attach a chart and it's not working.

@Sniper image upload seems to work for me.

Or were you just pasting in an image url? If that didn't work, what was the url?

Interesting, one thing that disappoints is the 8 million American individual expats get no relief fromt he draconian FATCA-courtesy the Obozo. Trump should have included it -as he is changing it for corproates.

Sorry Joey, no tax benefit to welfare queens. It's for those who work.

just times out and doesn't upload image.

I haven't seen anyone else post a direct image all day, just images from other URLs.

@Sniper could you mail me the image so I can try it myself? Might be something about the image content that is indigestible.

Cracked me up!
The losers are in Red,are they all Republicans.

"You gonna learn today!"
A tax increase in the Republican Tax plan is a tax increase.
Move over Reagan,Trump can go down in history as reforming the tax system by increasing taxes.

"There are plenty of unknowns about the tax framework released this week by the Trump administration and top congressional Republicans."

Everything about the tax reform is speculation.
My Speculation is more important than your speculation.

Bet there will be Republicans that will have to pay more taxes if this reform is ever passed.
Buyers remorse?

What else would you expect from Newscorp?

The numbers for the rich are a complete joke and total BS. You can't simply take current financial planning and apply it to future tax policy because almost everything a rich person does takes taxes into consideration. Once the new law is in effect, rich people will design their investments and their businesses to comply with the tax cuts and none of them will pay increased taxes.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
