      *WSJ: Biden Economics Will Lead To $6,500 Drop In Median Annual Household Income*
      Oct 19, 2020

      *According to a Hover institute Study analyzed by the Wall Street Journal, the Biden economic plan will result in the median annual American household income to drop by $6,500. The Hoover study examines Biden’s proposals on health insurance, taxes, energy, and regulation.*

      ~ Overall, the authors estimate that the Biden agenda, if fully implemented, would reduce full-time equivalent employment per person by about 3%, the capital stock per person by some 15%, and real GDP per capita by more than 8%. Compared to Congressional Budget Office estimates for these variables in 2030, this means there would be 4.9 million fewer working Americans, $2.6 trillion less in GDP, and $6,500 less in median household income.

      Or, to put it more directly–we will be screwed.

      Per the Journal, we probably won’t go into the depression predicted by President Trump; however, things will get pretty depressing. He would start with a booming economy set up by President Trump, but things will slow down and sink into malaise.

      The study explains many factors behind income reductions. A big part of it is the taxes and regulations that will disincentivize hiring. The opposite of what Trump did to get the economy going.

      ~ Mr. Biden is also proposing substantial increases in business tax rates that will raise the cost of capital. The former Vice President likes to say he’d only raise the top corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%. But so-called pass-through entities (often small businesses) employ more than 40 million Americans, and most pay taxes at the individual tax rate.

      ~ “Biden’s plan to raise personal income and payroll tax rates would push their federal rates from below 40 percent to, often, above 50 percent, and these are on top of state income taxes,” the authors write.

      ~ Mr. Biden would also raise capital costs by phasing down bonus depreciation in the 2017 tax reform, and he’d raise labor costs by imposing the 12.4% Social Security payroll tax to income above $400,000. The $400,000 threshold isn’t indexed for inflation so it would apply to ever-more Americans as the years go by.

      The study goes into detail explaining how Biden’s health and energy plans will also increase the cost of employing people eventually leading to higher unemployment—lower household income.

      Biden learned how to prevent a full booming economy from Barack Obama. The bottom line is that if you want a growth economy, vote for Trump.

    • Many that watched he debate last night that had voted early are in remorse for voting for Biden!

    • @Cliff Medina Don’t worry about those who voted early for Biden, mate.
      Just please wake up in time so that you don’t waste your vote ya.

  2. trump isn’t just running for president, he’s also running from prison

  3. “It’s not about his family or my family. It’s about your family.” — Biden, second debate
    (can’t imagine Trump saying this)

    • RIGHT?!

    • @Vondeebs , Actually trump family and inlaws received MILLIONS…. Jared kushner recvd BILLIONS from Qatar to cover mortgage on 666 Fifth Ave. Kushner family property…after which the BLOCKADE on Qatar was Lifted by Jared, GOOGLE IT. Ivanka and the trump family received MILLIONS in licensing fees, royalties, patents and real estate deals from China, India, Bangladesh, Japan, Singapore, Turkey , Saudi Arabia and too many countries to list here…Google it. trump the racist , 5 time draft dodging FAKE Patriot, FAKE Christian is in office to enrich himself, his family and his wealthy cronies. GOOGLE IT. trump is no more than a pos, racist grifter.

    • Joe deflecting from his family corruptions! Good one!

    • @may wilson Yes focus on your family, don’t focus on my corrupted family.

    • @may wilson yet “The big guy” VP Joe Biden milked hundreds of millions through Hunter from foreign entities. So much for the people! TREASON FOR JOE!

    It’s not over until the bell rings. Vote!

  5. Biden has won the debate, all he has to do is win the presidency, and he is counting on you, American patriots!

    • The only thing Biden won was a sweet coverup of his corruption, couldnt answer most of the questions, career politician with nothing but gaffes on his record, he was buddy buddy with the kkk and he’s calling Trump a racist ???

    • @Jock Young which reality do you live in ?

    • Bidens remarks about shutting down the oil industry will be the “stealth poison-pill” that torpedoes his campaign.He’s not gonna be able to walk that one back since there’s so many vids of him saying the same thing. Already surging in Ohio, you can guess what will happen in the oil-industry states.

    • @Alex Garza at least we won’t belong to Putin and Kim jong anymore

    • @jakobkodez I don’t care if Biden shot and killed someone on 5th Avenue,I don’t care if he payed off strippers, I don’t care if he lied 200,000 times on t.v.
      He’s got my vote, no more chaos and anarchy with Trump

      @XxPoopy_ headxX No wonder he’s hearing strange things – his head is up his butt.

    • He got that from his dad, Fred. “Toxic positivity.” Everything he does is “the best,” “the greatest,” “tremendous,” “like no one has ever seen before.”

    • @Greg Bors No Norman v. Peale’s book

    • If you’ve seen the latest polls of the downward-spiral of Biden’s Candidacy, THIS may interest you:
      When Trump wins Re-Election, and all of you Libs are going into hysterics and crying “How could Biden lose?”, it is the same reason as it was for Hillary’s loss in 2016. And that reason is: The MSM have been LYING to you about Trump! How could the Democrat party possibly mount an effective “defense” against Trump when you have NO idea what the REAL situation is because the MSM have been feeding you non-stop LIES. The MSM thought that Biden would have a better chance of winning if they LIED to you…and they were WRONG! Trumps Re-Election will be entirely due to the MSM’s “Strategy of LIES”. Blame THEM, because their strategy will be 90% responsible for Trump’s Re-Election.

  19. Steele seems to be a totally decent, good-humored, articulate, man of integrity. What was he doing being Chairman of the Crooked Party?
