house Bill H.R. 4886

Should the GOP Tax Cuts for Individuals & Families be Permanent?

Argument in favor

Through lower tax rates and a larger standard deduction, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act reduced the tax burden on working individuals and families and will help spur economic growth. Those reforms to the tax code should be locked permanently, as a possible tax hike in 2026 would undercut the economic benefits of the tax cut.

Taxation is theft, let me spend my own money the way I see fit, not have it sucked up by a statist vacuum. The American Revolution occurred under less burdensome taxes than today’s. Keynes is dead, long live Reaganomics!

Of course they should, but will the Democrats try to block them? I suspect that they will.

Argument opposed

The reduced tax rates and higher standard deduction provided by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act should be repealed as they increase the deficit too much and don’t do enough to help working Americans. If they were to be made permanent it’d explode the budget deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars.

Should we make huge tax breaks for the wealthy permanent? No actually we shouldn’t. We should reverse them as soon as possible

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is based on voo-doo economics. Trickle down does not work, will not work and is not working now. Corporations used the extra cash for stock buy-backs and enriching top executives. Damn little money is finding it down to the middle class that needs it the most. In addition, the national debt is literally exploding with debt. I do not ever want to hear another Republican complain about budget deficits when they voted for this bill.

Absolutely not! This bill was cash grab for the 1% and we need to move toward an aggressive system of progressive taxation as soon as possible. I’m a voter in Ohio’s 12th congressional district and I oppose this bill.

    Why was anyone excited about the cuts. $9 / paycheck more now and then permanent tax increases later ... and just as you were about to get excited about offsetting your Costco membership. This tax plan puts us in the hole, right now, to the tune of $1.3 TRILLION. They treat us like children and ask us to be grateful.

    We can’t afford the increase in deficit that the tax bill creates.

    Taxes on the wealthy need to be raised and loopholes allowing them to dodge the brunt of their responsibility must be eliminated.

    I think the tax cut and deficit spending should be scrapped as a bad idea! So far the only group the seem to get any fiscal responsibility done is the democrats. The republicans talk a great story. Look at history. The high tax rates that no corporations or wealthy paid due to loopholes, didn’t make any difference. The only difference now is the loopholes are still there.

    To my representatives vote against this bill. These tax cuts give nickels and dimes to the middle class and billions to corporations and one percenters. Scrap the bill and start over and get it right next time. Don’t be fooled people this is just the GOPs perennial Santa Claus 🎅 bill for the rich that stiffs the people to pay the tab for the rich. Drain the swamp my behind. 🙄

    This will raise the deficit, cripple the economy, and hurt even corporations, corporations being the ONLY group benefitting from the "Trump Taxation" reform. Even Marco Rubio is turning tail, staring there is not a shred of evidence that money generated by corporations from the tax cut have resulted in a SINGLE CENT for working families. Discard Trump Taxation.

    Repeal the tax breaks for big businesses and the wealthy. Make them actually pay their fair share (enough with the loopholes and hiding money). Then take the money and fix education, healthcare, and infrastructure!

    While the GOP is trying to position this as a cut for the working class, it is not. Any benefit there would have to come from increased spending but those who actually get the cuts: the very richest. That’s NEVER going to happen; there is not “trickle down”.

    If someone told you that you had to run your home with significantly less money in your paycheck every year – at some point you wouldn’t be able to pay the bills. That is exactly what is happening! We need a progressive tax code that requires people who make more money to pay more tax.
