Donald Trump Position Paper

Great Essays
Donald Trump is an American businessman and politician elected as a President of the United States. Trump was elected on November 8, 2016, and he has managed to build his fortune and reputation. The most obvious reasons for his election was his tax proposal. He has a tax plan reforms that would significantly reduce marginal tax rates for both individual and business, increase standard deduction to nearly four-time current level, or repeal some tax expenditure, both individual and corporate alternative of US companies in the year they are earned. This proposal would reduce the federal revenue by $9.5 trillion over its first decade before accounting for added interest cost or considering macroeconomic feedback effect. The public will improve …show more content…
The plan would also reduce some tax distortions in the allocation of capital. One of the main elements of the Trump proposal was related to the individual Income tax. This related to the range from 10 to 39.6 percent, into three brackets of 10,20,25. This plan would retain current preferential tax rates of 0,15 and 20 percent on long- term capital gains and qualified dividends in relation to the couples with the income under $50 000 would be not tax deductible, only the 10 percent will apply to higher income than that. However, the 20 percent rate will relate to income from $100 000 to $300 000 and the 25 percent rate of income above that. Donald Trump ‘s taxation plans would represent a “massive giveaway” to America 's richest one percent and leave eight million of its poorest families worse off, based on this proposal. In my opinion, this tax plan does not provide the balance between the poorest and the richest group in America and does not work for the benefits of the low-income families. Tax experts have agreed that Trump 's plan is …show more content…
The large economy would result in 5.4 percent higher wages and 20.1 percent larger capital stock under the high-rate hypothesis, or 6.3 percent higher wages and a 23.9 percent greater capital. This plan would also result in 1.8 million more full-time equivalent jobs under the highest-rated assumption, or more 22 million more under the lowest rate assumption. The largest economy and highest wages are due chiefly to the significantly reducing the cost of capital under his plan, which lowers the corporate tax income in relation to those firms which will adopt not deduct the interest. His strategy was to increase the workplaces were based on that that he will try to bring a single company to manufacture abroad. His philosophy can be compared to the Smoot -Hawley Tariff Act 1930 in regards the higher trading of goods, which will boost the American

    Business and economics journalist Andrew Leonard argues, “Extending the bush tax cuts would add another $2 Trillion to the deficit over the next 10 years. I don’t know what could possibly expose the utter hypocrisy of the Republican deficit hawk stance better than the simple math of that last sentence” (qtd. in “Extending”). The current U.S. deficit is close to 22 Trillion dollars. Thats more money than any government could pay by themselves, so they have to get money from taxpayers in order to pay it off.…

    A tax code that Trump has proposed will give the people what they need most; money. The majority of people live in the middle class, and now in Trump’s new tax policy, all of the middle class will pay less in taxes. The people that work the hardest and need their money the most, will without a doubt be given the right to hold on to more of it. Specifically, if an American is single and making $25,000 or less annually or is married and makes $50,000 or less annually, than they will not owe income tax. This removes 75 million households from paying income taxes.…

    Flat Tax Hardships

    Hardships on Flat Tax In 2010, the top 20% of the nation 's population owned 85.1% of the nation 's income and 80% of the nation’s population only owned 14.9% of the nation’s wealth. Five years later, the top 1% of the United States nation now owns more additional income than the bottom 90% of the nation 's population. Enacting a flat tax would make people pay the same percentage of their income. Even though a flat tax would enhance the economy 's long-term advancement, a flat tax should not be implemented as the United States new way of taxation because the top wealthiest 1% possess 40% of the nation 's wealth and it penalizes the low-income segment of the population. As of today, the current U.S. tax system, a progressive tax, is a huge…

    Government policy affects the economy in a variety of ways, but it is ultimately better for the government to have an active role in regulating and controlling it. Statistically speaking, the economy does better the more government regulation of it there is. Under the Obama administration, the economy has now more than quadrupled the number of jobs present from the Bush administration, and unemployment rates have dropped below the current historical average (Brooks). In addition, corporate profits have nearly tripled, and wages have increased 1.7% (Brooks). Under President Bush’s Administration, (which actively opposed government involvement in economic affairs,) unemployment peaked at 8%, the GDP lost 5%, and wages for college graduates stagnated.…

    Under the presidency of Hillary Clinton, every economic class will get a hike in its taxation rates. However, she has drawn up a tax plan to minimalize higher rates on the lower and middle classes while taxing the top 1 percent of the US earners an additional $78,000 per person (Frank, Robert). On the other hand, Sanders took a very individualistic approach with his tax plan that cuts the US economy up into more than seven classes of wealth, each having a larger increase than that of Clinton’s…

    For example, according to Americans for Tax Fairness (2014), the Walton Family has exploited a loophole to avoid paying three billion dollars in estate taxes (¶ 5). Sheldon Adelson, a casino entrepreneur has exploited a loophole that permitted him to pass eight billion dollars to family members and avoid $2.8 billion in estate taxes (¶ 8). Getting rid of the estate tax will only increase wealth inequality in the United States. According Marr, DeBot, & Huang, (2015) in 2012, the wealthiest one percent held…

    Raising the minimum wage can help reduce the need for government welfare for these families. “ A recent study from the Center for American Progress concluded that the [Tom] Harkin-[George] Miller legislation [minimum wage hike] becomes law, it would earn as many as 3.8 million fewer people enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), thus reducing spending by nearly $4.6 billion a year” (Perez). Raising the minimum wage would help pay for the needs of employees, without them needing to be supported by the state. This helps put money back into the economy to strengthen everyone, and allow federal spending to go to better causes. When his company faced potential economic trouble, Henry Ford doubled the wages of his assembly line workers, saying, “If we can distribute high wages, then that money is going to be spent and it will serve to make storekeepers and distributors and manufacturers and workers in other lines more prosperous and their prosperity will be reflected in our sales.…

    Suppose the employee and the employer chose a more economical plan, costing, say, $15,000. They would save $5,000 that would then be available to pay additional wages. But since the tax bite will be $1,500, take home pay will rise by only $3,500. So here is the bottom line: under the current system we can always lower our taxes by buying more health insurance. If we buy less health insurance, our taxes go up.…

    This, according to the article I read would save around 1.5 trillion dollars. This means that the previous estimate of 3 trillion drops down to 1.5 trillion, and the actual tax increase is only 17.8% rather than 35.7% (Santens). This extra 17.8% does not have to apply to all tax brackets (the higher brackets could be taxed more), but for the sake of equality, let’s say it does. Say Joe earns $20,000. He gets taxed this extra 17.8%, meaning his tax burden goes up $3,560; he still receives a basic income of $12,000 a year though, so he actually gets an extra $8,440…

    This is a stark contrast to when Bush took office in 2001, when he inherited a budget surplus of $236 billion from Clinton (Jacobson). That means that Bush lost approximately $1.5 trillion in a period of 8 years. This is after the tax cuts of 2001. Time and time again it has been proven that statements about tax cuts increasing federal income are empirically not true. In an article written in the Daily Reckoning, it talks about the former White House budget director David Stockman’s opinion on the Trump tax cuts.…
