Trump continues to slam former US intel leaders: “I mean, give me a break, they are political hacks...I mean, you have Brennan, you have Clapper and you have Comey..So you look at that and you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with them”

.or do you think the Clintons and Soros and Gates of the world don't use tax laws....so stop the chicken little, it is all and only trump routine and maybe there could be an interesting conversation. Until then just more fake news!

LOL; Gates, Buffet, and the Clintons have all pushed for higher taxes on the rich.

Look at how their companies use tax laws, like NetJet. They find every way to not pay taxes. Then on their own money they talk about higher taxes.

NetJet could have just handed over the $500mill it owed without fighting it if they were so tax friendly.

And Gates? He;s got a little bit of the hypocrisy problem

getting Microsoft out of about $1.5 billion in taxes a year



not Clinton, he just uses charitable organizations to dodge paying any taxes. Like how he uses his Canadian branch to receive shady offerings then transfer them to the US without having to disclose the names from the Canadian part of the same slush fund.

and when the asset is sold by the heirs they will only pay taxes on the increase in it's value from the time they inherited.

buy asset for $100,000 in 1990
asset is worth $10,000,000 in 2017

If the owner sells the shares before they die they pay capital gains tax on the increase.

If they die their heirs inherit the asset and for tax purposes the cost price is $10,000,000 so no tax is ever paid on the increase from $100,000 to $10,000,000.

It's the perfect crime.

Buy a stock, with post tax dollars, watch it become huge; making yourself super rich.

Then you DIE and don't have to pay any taxes on it!

It's genius! There is no downside...well except for the dying part.


The government is ENTITLED to all monies. You have no right to gain ANY without giving them their share.

Work your job until April 23rd and give every penny to the government, every year. That is your duty, because the government is very efficient and careful with your money.

How dare anyone try to keep their money.


Besides, they will probably just blow it on investing in a new home or a yacht..putting hundreds of middle class people to work so they can have nice things. It's so unfair.

Turns out Trump didn't ruin the economy.

Turns out Trump didn't ruin our relations with China

Turns out Trump didn't destroy America's image around the world

His latest tweet may be my favorite of all time.

And how is lowering the income tax going to get people do stop abusing these loopholes?

Just a year ago you swore until you were blue in the face that Trump declaring bankruptcy 4 times made him a savvy business and the fact that he used actual dubious loopholes in tax code to declare illegitimate tax losses made him the uber leader.

Look in the mirror for half the stuff you bitch about.

Here's what NK actually said about Trump. And the fact he has gone from wanting to carpet bomb Pyonyang with nukes to thinking that they can be buds kind of backs that up.

Also short-term myopic thinking that ****ing over actual conservative econonomics

Bush slashes regulations on banks -> Banks **** over people (and themselves) -> Big recession and bailouts -> new bipartisan financial regulations -> Trump strips these out.

The market isn't going to fall over but he's removing the safety barriers.
