    I got fucked over by the tax bill, there are some state income taxes that I won't be able to deduct when I'm off tax paying age I'd I choose to live in the state I live in now.

    The Republicans capped the amount of state taxes you can deduct since that only affects Democratic states, and they didn't include them in the negotiation.

    ye from what I've heard, Trump will make tax cut for all average family
    What's wrong with him, is that he thinks average family makews 75k$
    that's FAR AWAY from the average family's income
    so only rich will get tax cuts
    in other words... Trump is...
    yea... he is...

    If i understood it right most people will get some extra money from these tax cuts. They'll get a nice sum of money soon... The problem is they'll then have to pay more than they got in the coming year in little chunks because of the tax bill. It's devious because people are more likely to remember the big sum and forget the lots of little sums.

    here in quebec, were in electoral year
    provincial election are this fall
    so theyll promise us lot of candy like always
    and we will only receive shit once theyre elected

    For example, idk how many time liberal told us "We will have tax reduction for everyone" in electoral year
    and when they got elected, only riches got tax cuts

    I'd say I'm abut the same as last year. We as Americans aren't in concentration camps (illegal immigrants or white people) as the looney left or the righteous right thought when tRump won lol.

    Fair enough, although I just thought he'd be embarrassing for the country (and to be honest, he has been)

    I have nothing against people on the autism spectrum (myself included), Kayne is just an airhead, vacuous, really.

    Kayne West. He is an American music producer.

    Anyways looking more and more like Oprah will run. I personally have nothing against her, I just have no idea where she stands on topic x y and z.
