Scott admittedly is not permanent and still budget busting and it’s still a deficit disaster how out of touch as it to be calling that promise there.
Yeah. Thousand dollars is not crimes , although it will not that trumps economic adviser , Gary Cohen said get you a new car or any follow their church and that was it . There was a . That’s right folks , she most of my look at the refrigerator alone has got a .
I still here. It is time here we happen to have him . This is great , this is Gary Cohn saying exactly where Marjorie says , but in the flesh . If we allow if they I to keep another thousand dollars of their income , what does that mean they can renovate the kitchen . They can buy a new they could buy a new car , they can take a family vacation . They can increase their life stuff that’s what our tax plans to do our taxpayer is aimed to return more income that the hard-working Americans . That’s what we’re trying to do there and by the way , let me be clear that I I was criticizing Pelosi McGovern saying a thousand was crumbs . It is not crimes but I think most of us know you’re playing I could buy a new car , no renovate your kitchen now thousand dollars the Gary .
Well , that’s my favorite Havana Brady Facebook thing Tom this time when you get that would , you could see the you know trim their cell donation Tom Brady kitchen. I mean , oh my God to die for that probably was . I don’t know , I had no idea maybe a hundred thousand dollar kitchen .
Well , you get is now I don’t know , I mean I would say that pays for the nub on a neutral offers. Are you kidding me . Anyway , it sounds like the most beautiful room areas . Really .
Take porn as they call some of these things like Little Big will largely is always beautiful houses on the ocean in California. Take a look at the beautiful house that they have up and up and up , recline , but you know they’ve they’ve earned it .
I felt we were , how , what’s your reaction when you hear somebody who theoretically is at the top of the pyramid. The speaker of the House , Paul Ryan , who does of opponent . By the way , a Democratic opponent , even though it’s considered a long shot soon tweeting and then deleting which is the most guaranteed way to make sure people pay attention to tweet that some teacher is celebrating the dollar 50 and by the way a week that she’s getting and she was interviewed on CNN last night or yesterday during the day and she makes she wasn’t celebrating in them , she was saying that she was seeing an extra dollar 50 she just reflecting on that reality but you know the worst part to me is not the money why you think tax cut is even worse than I do , I think it’s pretty bad . But in the short term , it is going to mean something . Obviously , I’m a lasting .
Term I think I will get emails all the time , people said they extra 75 bucks in their paycheck. An extra 100 bucks in their paycheck . If you , one of the company’s weak at the bonus . I mean , that’s a great thing if that . But the issue is the bigger picture .
Well the issue to me is , these people have no idea where ripped real people’s lives are like , whether it’s Polo Seattle or Ryan , or who are Gary before me. I mean , Australia .
Alameda should given everybody you know one lump sum was the payment. What was up he was going . We were getting money back or move an orchard it is over . George Bush through that was , that was , yeah , chocolate , you know if it will ObamaCare every 3 bucks a week . Some ridiculous things . Nobody ever notices like $1,000 altogether , something like that . Yeah , it is a beach I tell you something . I think it has to do with chums poll numbers going up that or is this gentleman that you know me last week , he said . Hey , I just got 75 bucks more my paycheck . The Democrats done for me lately , you know , you could argue that the the the return of the cut the turn around the economy began under a Democrat . This continued are all through it trump gets huge credit for the stock market going through the roof . But the point is , the issue is bigger . The issue is the increasing income inequality . Not all stone throwing your grown children yeah evolution and they’re in there , we are at the point now that we were like before we had the great depression with it wealth was so concentrated on one side . Get a front page story the globe today through the story but the hunger at the elite schools no you we talked about how there was we we talked before about how there’s it clearly cards and stuff of people maybe work in full time at couple kissing trying his home course in the side how there’s a real problem there with being broken having no money for food food pantries are now at the Ivy League school MIT Emerson Dartmouth College . The talking about how people coming from fearless that are so poor that they don’t have enough money to buy food . Even with the scholarships are going to go to the school . So things are out of whack you know and and that’s the issue , is it , is it this tax bill will make the income inequality larger it will not .
Well except in all fairness that teacher in Lancaster by a role which she she could buy one all week and she got it totally eat small portions of the row let any of that.
Another you know I think a lot people argued that the that the reduction in the corporate tax is a good thing if the corporations do turn around and raise people’s wages and give people better benefits and there is some indication a couple than we’re doing there.
Well well well known exactly some indications Brad that knowledge now widespread that the bonuses , they’re giving which are not crumbs. As we discussed a minute ago are an infinitesimally small percentage of the amount of money in the benefit they are reaping . But the issue for this is not where even though we’ve got into the pros and cons of the tax plan . It’s more about the messaging and how totally out of touch these people who live and work in DC or you know Steve midwives a normal people what’s .
Another argument for term limits law through. I know I will die without ever sensitive and by the way Jones ask if it tax cuts expire after 2018 not elections now , they will go on , they will be they’ll get less and less generous , but they will not go away entirely lawful corporations those silver former exactly corporations get it forever . The individual tax rates expire . For now , it’s all years , or 20-20 5-20 .
Okay. Carol here Melrose , you’ve been very patient here . First on Boston Public Radio . Welcome .
Hello , thank you. So they do so . I actually happen to fall in that in that sweet spot of $1,000 a year this past month , I saw a $90 increase in my monthly annuity I’m retired for good and however every time I drive anywhere and hit Wharton pothole I am reminded of our failure to invest in our infrastructure in our country and and I’m not gonna enjoy that $90 because I can’t fix that impossible .
Take Allahabad 3 years and 3 train accidents and 3 weeks. Yeah , I would argue that’s a pretty good case further we could use the trillion half dollars for infrastructure investment rather than this 200 million . The president’s talking about an attempt to leverage a trillion from the private sector I not you know I happen to believe you know the term infrastructure as a mean much for a lot of people I would bet Carol if there was a national referendum and the average person was asked whether they wanted this temporary tax cut or they wanted all that money invested in roads , bridges , high speed rail etc . I think you carried today but unfortunately Nevado Baytown .
The tax rate for the wealthiest Americans was lowered from 1939 to 37th the rate was not authors of little yes , something like that , you know , it’s 39-37 I I don’t have a dozen points , but the point is I there was not that kind of equivalent thing for the middle class , it was justice there blue Dog from like them and an outside a broken record saying this but it most of our most prosperous times United States of America , the wealthiest were paying much , much more than that up to 90% after World War II’s 80% 70% 60% things change with Ronald Reagan and you could argue that with Ronald Reagan , as when the income inequality gap began to grow.
Well , they began to change with JFK to JFK lower those were a bit. Yeah well stratosphere .
Police were. Yeah . The big change was Reagan from I I believe that if I’m right , it was down from specifically something down to the floor .
But you’re you’re avoiding my question : why. So let’s assume you’re like that Lancaster , Pennsylvania Secretary . Yeah , I give you an extra buck 50 a week waiting to do with the first will be blown a Costco now I do know that the 9-12 there go for stars you could join Costco and have $18 left over .
I think I would have more our money quarters for the meter is know now , the leaders are only their 12 minutes per quarter. Also you don’t need court I could park we could do your credit card Park boss that yes , you can do that , but if you and I have got . Well you know why carry the quarters . No I don’t faster it’s faster because you don’t know how they’ll know you know what it takes a while sometimes get the response approved not approved injuries very quickly for the quarters and I think you could park for an ex-journalist what’s a buck 50 divided by 12 Jim box of food that have sensed what nonsense . Okay . You could park for a little bit longer on the streets of Boston at every week with your ex to buy 50 I don’t think you can buy by Pentagon for Dar 50 I by the large packs of which were the they way through Louisiana bode well you don’t buy a cup of coffee . My Kenya .
Tim in New Hampshire. You know you it will talk to them first him in New Hampshire next on Boston Public Radio Marjorie Jim rowdy at the Boston Public Library there Tim .
They had morning McCarthy. I think that I fall short . So I think the telling of the tax cuts and the seemingly more from Riya for the position of the politicians are you talking about go here that literally is being trialled first of all right of Republicans who honor the air to rest because mean can talk with their lying about the tax well then as fire lit which we already know this is some like people artifact it won’t . So all the information because they help on the , but overall scarce . So that’s look source , we can tell is if you’re partner like all right . It stands for .
Well , I’d say we’re losing you know a badly there we gotta let you go. I’m sorry your breakeven line is breaking up his basic contention if you hear that the GOP were selling the public a bill of goods . But however as these withholding rates go down so the people are saying a few more bucks their paycheck as Marjorie said earlier in .
