Trumpís Tariffs Have Already Wiped Out Tax Bill Savings for Average Americans

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/mark...ans/ar-AACwyvk

President Donald Trumpís trade wars have already wiped out all but $100 of the average American householdís windfall from Trumpís 2017 tax law. And thatís just the beginning.

That last $100 in tax-cut gains could soon completely disappear -- and then some -- because of additional tariffs Trump has announced. If the president makes good on his threats to impose levies on virtually all imports from China and Mexico, those middle-earning households could pay nearly $4,000 more

Subtract the tax cut, and the average household will effectively be paying about $3,000 more in taxes through additional levies on the products they consume.



So none of this happened. Are you coming back to acknowledge that the MSM was making up fake news yet again?

For some irrational reason people like WMak70 and odanny confuse INSULTS with ARGUMENTS.
If you were on the left you would have been greeted by insulting right wing nuts. This is not a forum where intelligent debate is found too often.

This thread is about tax cuts for the average American. As far as corporate tax cuts, when did those ever result in either increased wages for employees or a decrease of the corporate product prices?

I'll wait.

Iíve got a 401K. That is how the tax cuts have helped this working stiff. Unfortunately the tariffs neutralized the benefit.

I just watched a video clip from a speech that said that at the time of the civil war - no Republican owned slaves. There were 4 million slaves in America at that time and they were ALL owned by democrats. Why on earth would anyone want to be a democrat based on that history?
Aw....because not one democrat endorsed slavery in the past century. Now what about those white supremacists?

Yeah the last Republican president really did damage to our economy. Now it is trump's turn. The market has been stagnant for the past 17 months. You may want to check your numbers again.

The problem goes back to Bill Clinton's administration, and nobody has done much about it. Now Trump is doing something about it.
How will tariffs stop the theft of intellectual property?

Nope. I'm saying the ones the OP claimed didn't happen. You guys are fodder to the crooked MSM which this topic is based on.
