how many of you are looking forward to paying 20% higher taxes, big government, losing your guns, economic armageddon a la Biden, socialized medicine, no bail for criminals?

Will await the usual snarky, off subject, childish, unhinged, crass remarks that reflect badly on the posters. You know, the juvenile entertainment from the left that makes my day !

Biden's plan is to roll back the change on the upper-most bracket.

That means moving that bracket from 37% back to 39.6%. That is a change in the bracket of 2.6 pts or 7%...of course the total change would be less than 7%..

1. Didn't realize we had so many in the lunge making more than $400K!

When you do your taxes under Biden pull up your last year under trump and compare. If you use turbo tax, it will be easy. Just save a new file for FY20 (or 21) and plug in the new numbers that you are taxed on under Biden. Probably don't need to change much to get a decent comparison. Then look at the bottom line. Then you will think, "I remember someone on TNEt told me this would happen."

2. Your boy Trump has not done one thing for the national deficit. He spends!

Who wants to spend more - democrats. If you don't know that, then you need to turn in your TNet userid today.

3. Did Trump give you back the gun Obama took from ya?

Dumb comment. Obama didn't have the votes and the left was not as extreme as they are today.

4. Last time Biden was in office he and Obama brought us out of a Republican Recession.

The only reason we came out of a recession and stayed out was Trump. There was no substance behind the Obama economy and don't count unemployment because the number of people who had quit looking for work was at a historical high.

5. Do you drive a car? Do you have car insurance that you are required to have? Same for health care accept you don't get a choice in whether or not you get sick. We can do better for all. And your boy Trump hasn't come up with a new health care plan in his 4 years.

Wow, sure are showing your lack of thinking here. We are REQUIRED to buy insurance to protect OTHERS from immediate, direct, and significant financial distress if I (as guilty party) total your vehicle. That's why gubment makes me buy liability insurance.

The plan is the plan that exists now w/o the mandate. I will give you this, Trump has not made that clear. The current/modified Obamacare won't be rolled back until there is a another plan, but I do not think there is an urgency to replace it. So, it will remain status quo in all likelihood under a second Trump term.

He’s also expanding the ceiling for the 12.4% payroll tax from $137,000. The $400k thing has been proven to not be true. Also as others said, when you tax corporations, that ultimately gets passed on to consumers and investors. Investors will also see capital gains tax hikes. Probably everyone in here is an investor in some form.

How has the "$400k thing" been proven to be false? How do you prove a plan that is clearly written to be "false". You can not believe the plan or believe it, but you can't prove it to be false.

No matter how you slice it, the statement that everyone's taxes are going up by 20% based on Biden's plan is wrong, right? It's clearly made-up, right?

Biden's plan raises the cap gains rate and the dividend rate from 23.8% to 39.6% for those making over $1MM annually. I think that's wrong and I'm against it. But, it's not going to measurably impact the avg investor, and likely not anyone in here. Right?

The 137 ceiling currently adjusts annually for inflation. Under Biden, people making over 400 would immediately pay the 12.4. There would be a gap between the 137 and 400 that would close over time.

isn't going to cause everyone's taxes to go up by 20%.

The payroll tax ceiling increase is going to cost the average person making more than $137,700 (moving to $142,800) about $345/yr. But that's not part of Biden's tax plan...that has already been announced for 2021 (assume you know that already). Biden's plan creates the "doughnut hole" between that limit and those making over $400k.

I can't find where you have yet brought up a point/example of his tax plan raising taxes on those making under $400k. I hope you didn't think the payroll tax ceiling increase was only happening under Biden's tax plan. It goes up just about every year based on inflation.

Geez man you’d argue with a freaking wall. Capital gains do apply to everyone regardless of income. I also already explained the corporate tax aspect. He’s not stopping the indexing of the ceiling while at the same time applying it immediately to the $400k+ crowd. So the ceiling will be eliminated at some point.

We’re not even getting into the elimination of tax deductibility of 401k plans. You might want to quit while your behind.

The capital gains increase is only if you make above $1MM. So how does that apply to everyone?

Your argument is that changing the corporate tax back to what it was a few years ago is going to cause pricing to increase. Maybe if it was a mass increase there might be a point there, but I seriously doubt pricing models have changed since it was decreased a few years ago. I run a company and certainly benefited from the tax cuts in terms of being able to expand, but I don't see a direct correlation to pricing. There aren't many businesses that price things directly based on their costs. It's a lot more complicated than that and generally have more to do with the competitive market than costs. Regardless, it's not a tax increase on the general population. That is a real stretch.

You say the ceiling will be eliminated at some point. Well, if we follow the current formula for inflation adjustment and inflation stays around 3%, it would take around 60 yrs for the ceiling to be eliminated.

As for the 401k pre-tax deductions, Biden's plan is to give everyone the same tax benefit and the proposal is 26% tax credit on what is invested in 401k's up to the $19k limit. That means it would be a very slight $ amount increase in taxes to those with effective tax rates over 26%. I don't have time to do the math, but effective federal rate over 26% has to be around the $400k mark, maybe more depending on deductions.

This is why I hate engineers as clients. You fkers think you know everything about everything.

The 401k thing will kill plans for small to medium sized businesses. If the owners don’t see a benefit, they won’t offer the plans. Period. I actually talk to these people.

Biden also wants to eliminate the step up in cost basis on inherited wealth. That currently not only helps a lot of people avoid tax gains but also helps avoid a nearly impossible situation of finding cost basis of some things that could be 50 years old or older and no records exist.

https://www.fool.com/taxes/2020/09/13/bidens-plan-could-leave-you-paying-a-higher-tax-on/


Overall his policy is a net negative for most tax payers and only generates only about $3T over 10 years. That’s even assuming that the economy isn’t killed by it. Tax revenues had flattened under Obama and took off again after the 2018 cuts.

Or at least point out where I am wrong. I gave you a pretty good bit of detail.

The 401k proposed change will certainly not kill off company sponsored 401k's. That is utterly ridiculous. The change for almost everyone is going to be neutral to a slight positive in terms of taxable income benefit. There are very few employees of companies that have an effective federal income tax rate above 26%. You say you talk to these people every day....I am one of those people (meaning running a company and decide on company benefits). Please explain how having the employee benefit go from a pre-tax payroll check deduction to a end-of-year tax credit of 26% of funds invested would cause an employer to discontinue offering the plan? There is no real down-side to the employer with this change. The employer matching funds is still an expense item...nothing changes there. Give me some detail on why you believe what you wrote.

As far as the step-up basis change, this is a good analysis of the impact.

https://taxfoundation.org/analysis-economic-revenue-distributional-effects-repealing-step-basis/

According to this analysis, almost all of the impact is on the top 1%...by the latest tax states, that is income above $427k.


So...to summarize, I'm still waiting for you to illustrate how income taxes are going to increase for those making under $400k as a result of the plan Biden is proposing. Rough count is you're 0 for 4 currently.

You do know how averages work, right? The top 1% have a tax burden of ~38%. If they have 7.7% less after-tax income, when you include that in everyone it comes out to about 1.9% over the total. That statistic doesn't directly lead to a conclusion that taxes are going to go up on those making less than $400k.

You don't know who is an expert on what, and you are incapable of having a civil discussion. Flow gave you stats and tried to talk the issue. You made it personal.

Here are some hard truths in life your daddy never taught you:

-Your profession isn't any more or less valuable compared to someone else's as long as you both work an honest living. Each job is important to our society. A man's job doesn't define his character or his self-worth.

-Just because someone disagrees with you on an issue, it's not a personal attack on you as a person or a challenge to your manhood.

-Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean that person is your enemy or resides on the complete opposite end of any political spectrum. They just disagree with you on an issue.

-If you cannot have a normal discussion without devolving into name-calling and attacks on a person or their profession, you may need to consult a professional for help.

-It's fine if you walk away from a debate without changing the other person's mind. Not everyone will agree with you.

Let me know when you're ready to accept these truths and enter the adult world.

Once again, I didn't say that. Are you as dumb as a box of rocks like Flow? I literally just said that like one post ago.

He's not an expert in my field just like I'm not one in his.

I repeatedly pointed out where he was wrong and he kept saying stuff like I was "ill-informed." In reality, he's the one that is ill-informed which is understandable since he doesn't deal with this stuff. I deal with it daily. He's just flat out wrong about the step-up in cost basis thing as well as the 401k plans. He doesn't want to admit that because he's pro-Biden.

You seem to be the one that needs help as you continually stalk me and my posts and insert yourself into conversations you weren't a part of.

Speaking of professions, what do you even do??? I picture you as a freelance internet blogger talking about first amendment rights.

In any case, I'm done going forward responding to your posts. I'm simply going to TD every time you respond to me. So long.

A man who is so scared and defeated over what's about to happen next week that you keep posting these same questions over and over.

First, you aren't changing anyone's vote on this board with this. Chances are good most people here have already voted.

Next, I wouldn't look forward to any of those things and I doubt anyone else here would. But here's what's not going to happen under Biden:

-Twenty percent higher taxes. At least, not to most of the people on here.
-Losing my guns. This is just a usual scare tactic by your end of the spectrum. And once again, it's a con job by gun manufacturers to scare you into thinking that. No one is coming for our guns.
-We already have big government. Too big of a government. Too powerful of an executive branch. But see, the GOP and Trump have supported that for this century. Trump is a big advocate of big government. Why do you support him?
-No bail for criminals. Let's get real. This is all a state thing, anyway.

Calm down. You'll be okay. All of you Trump folks kind of brought this on yourselves with the constant in our faces for the last four years and calling any of us who criticized him leftist Dems.

You don’t know that any more than I do. He won and beat projections in all 3 in 2016. He’s doing better in PA currently than he was against Hillary. Biden just made a major, undeniable gaffe with the statement about fossil fuels. The national average polls are also tightening over the past few days. This election is very much in play, no matter how many more Dems in Blue states vote against him. That’s really gonna sting if he still wins after the Dems have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at this.

Even if the polls are as wrong as they were in 2016, Biden is still projected to win. Biden didn't lose any votes over that fossil fuel statement. People's minds are already made up this time.

That’s simply not true but no surprise from the NYT.

If you look at the RCP chart that I attached, Hillary was +6 in PA and Trump won it by .7. Biden is only up by 4.5 in PA and falling.

Just admit you don’t really know instead of just injecting your opinion and what you WANT to happen.

That's the big myth from the election. They were dead-on with popular vote, and they had slight miscalculations in those three key states because they didn't focus on one demographic enough (and they're not making that mistake this time).

2016 was also an anomaly: It's only the fifth time something like that has ever happened in U.S. history.

lives" as being just as idiotic as anything else being said? It's the talking point du jour, and it's so weak it's not funny.

If you believe that Trump cost 200k American lives, then you are of the opinion that somewhere out there, there's a candidate (presumably it would be Hillary, but I'm willing to give wide imaginative berth here), any candidate, who could have and would have prevented all American covid deaths. If you don't believe that, then you don't believe that Trump is responsible for all 200k.

So maybe the person who says that is reasonable and says "ok, well, he's just responsible for some of them". The next questions that I have yet to get a reasonable answer to are:

1) Hillary...Biden...Candidate X---exactly what do you believe they would have done differently to correct what you believe Trump did wrong.

1.5) Before we move on, let's be sure to run your answer to 1 through the good old reality filter....whatever you think they would have done, is it constitutionally allowed? Would the House, Senate, and state-level leaders have allowed it? Would governors like Cuomo just have gone ahead and sent old Covid patients to nursing homes anyway, negating your actions? Would it have been legally challenged? Would the SC have allowed it to stand? Ok, if you're sure of all those things, let's go to #2

2) If your answer to 1 were implemented by the mystery candidate, exactly how many lives do you think it would have saved? What are you basing this lives saved metric on?

If you can get through 1 and 2 with solid answers, I'm willing to accept someone saying "Trump directly caused X additional deaths by not implementing Y directives." If they can't, they're making the argument of a child, saying that "bad man responsible for all bad things", and they can generally be ignored on further conversations on the topic.

I agree. It is a virus and most of us will get it - just like the flu and the cold. But COVID is deadlier and we have no vaccine and no definite, proven treatments.

These are the times when a clearly articulated plan, with updates from the best science has to offer, and calm, steady leadership, not "It'll magically disappear by Easter" are most needed.

As much as I loved his first 3 years, on COVID, DJT has failed miserably.

I just pray his ineptitude doesn't cost me the business I have worked hard to build.

But not the sole factor. He was already in bad shape before COVID.

His rabid supporters are also to blame. Many Americans are voting against them just as much as they are voting against him. We've had four years of rubbing MAGA, "owning the libs," "Trump Train," and "snowflakes" in our faces simply for criticizing him, and anyone who dared to criticize him was labeled a liberal Dem who hates America.

That #### got old fast.

When you are an ungracious winner and you are constantly and obnoxiously rubbing your team in people's faces, don't be surprised when they all want you to lose.

What should have happened is all of us discuss these matters in a civil fashion, Trump supporters realizing that most Americans have an eclectic view of the world and aren't just "liberal Dems" for pointing out flaws, and (this is the most important) Trump supporters actually holding him accountable to problems instead of blindly following his every word and move. Or dismissing his bad actions at every turn.

Yes, his loss next week falls on the shoulders of his own militant supporters as well. I haven't met anyone who is excited to be voting for Biden, but they sure as #### are excited to be voting against Trump.

It gets old being told you're a racist for existing, or that you hate this and that for no particular reason other than you disagree politically. My entire adult life Democrats have been beating that drum about Republicans, but there's not enough self awareness on either side to realize what the inevitable push back will be when you don't let up.

The smugness that came out of the Dem camp in 2016 definitely helped Trump win. Many Americans did the same in 2016 as a #### you to them. I too though it ridiculous that anyone who opposed Obama was labeled racist (there were plenty who opposed him because he was racist, but not the majority... ####, I didn't like him as president and I know I'm not racist).

So yes, I think you're right, the same attitude was at play. This is the power of the moderate voter in America.

We have a $27,000,000,000,000 national debt. We had a $1,000,000,000,000 deficit before several trillion more were added for covid. We have no taxable solution for our spending, which has never decreased in my 44 years as an American. We are less stable as a society because grownups see the problem. Trump is not the answer to it. Neither is Biden for that matter.

We are getting exactly what we deserve. Bad leadership. Period.

No one will lose their guns, or their abortions, no matter who wins. They will lose their security though, their incomes, their businesses, either way. They've already lost their faith. Family? Most have lost those. The American "family" doesn't exist anymore. I know because I document it for a living. Ward and June and Beaver are the very small and shrinking exception to the overall rule. Local congregation just lost their church.

We used to have debates where two grownups argued policy. Now we have an immature child and a senile old man yelling at each other for inordinate control of a once reasonable and just nation.

While you're being entertained by the juvenile left, and the right is entertained by the juvenile Trump, Rome burns.
