      *Joe Biden’s Tax Day Promise – $4 Trillion In Tax Hikes*
      July 15, 2020

      *Now that it is Tax Day, it is worth noting that a President Joe Biden will raise taxes across the board on American families and businesses.*

      In total, Biden has called for at least $4 trillion in new or higher taxes including income tax increases, business tax increases, and capital gains tax increases.

      Biden has repeatedly called for repealing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), which will increase taxes on Americans at every income level.

      While the Biden and others on the left falsely claim that the Trump tax cuts only benefited “the rich,” the TCJA led to strong tax reduction for American families.

      By repealing the TCJA, Biden will increase taxes on American families earning the median annual income of $73,000 by over $2,000. A single parent with one child making $41,000 would see a $1,300 tax increase each year.

      The twenty-two million American families that take the child tax credit will see it cut in half from $2,000 to $1,000. 4.5 million households that have seen relief from the Alternative Minimum Tax will once again face this onerous burden.

      Biden also says he will bring back the Obamacare individual mandate tax penalty, which was zeroed out in the TCJA.

      Before it was repealed, the individual mandate was one of the most regressive taxes in the code and forced individuals to purchase government approved health insurance or pay a tax totaling almost $700 for an individual and $2,000 for a family. In 2017, the Obamacare individual mandate tax hit 4,654,990 households and 75 percent of those paying the mandate had annual income of less than $50,000.

      Biden also wants to increase taxes on businesses – his plan calls for raising the corporate rate back up to 28 percent or 35 percent – which would make the U.S. rate higher than China.

      He also proposes several new taxes on businesses including a 15 percent minimum tax and repealing the 20 percent “small business” deduction enacted by the TCJA.

      Increasing taxes on small and large businesses will harm American workers and make the U.S. a less competitive place to do business.

      Biden also proposes doubling the capital gains tax to over 40 percent, a tax increase that would further harm economic growth, reduce investment, and threaten the creation of new jobs and wage growth.

      As the pandemic runs its course, Biden’s tax hikes will threaten our economy’s ability to recover from the nationwide lockdown.

      Coronavirus took a sledgehammer to one of the strongest economies in American history. The February 2020 jobs report recorded 19 months of consecutive annual average wage growth of 3 percent or more. The unemployment rate was 3.5 percent – a 50-year low, and labor force participation rate was 63.4 percent, a 7 year high.

      Prior to the pandemic, the tax cuts and other economic policies had led to strong economic growth and wage growth. This economic growth was not limited to any one demographic – unemployment for African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics, and other key groups was at or near record lows.

      While the pandemic cut these economic gains short, Job Biden is proposing to increase taxes on American businesses and families at a time that the economy is struggling.

      Moving forward, we need policies that will help businesses and workers get back on their feet, not stifling tax increases that will inhibit growth and keep wages down.

      *Records show bulk of millions raised for Biden cancer nonprofit went to top execs, conventions*
      June 25, 2020

      *Despite losing his own son to cancer and vowing to cure cancer, it appears presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has done virtually nothing for the cause save for the lining of pockets of top executives who staff his fancy cancer-themed nonprofit.*

      “One of several nonprofits Joe Biden created following his tenure in the White House, the Biden Cancer Initiative paid top executives lavishly, with salaries comprising nearly 65 percent of its total expenditures,” the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday.

      “That is well above the 25 percent charity watchdogs recommend nonprofits spend on administrative overhead and fundraising costs combined.”

      BCI was reportedly an offshoot of the Obama administration’s Cancer Moonshot Initiative.

      Before suspending its operations this year because of Biden’s presidential campaign, BCI reportedly raised $4.8 million 2017 and 2018 combined. However, over $3 million of the raised funds went to paying “salaries, compensation, and benefits,” while $740,000 went toward funding “conferences conventions and meetings.”

      Meanwhile, the nonprofit reportedly never once “cut a single grant to any other group or foundation during its two-year run.”

      According to the Beacon, the charity’s spending habits raise many questions.

      “An analysis of nonprofits by Charity Navigator, which rates charities for effectiveness, found that mid-to-large-sized nonprofits paid their chief executives an average salary of $126,000 per year — far less than what the Biden Cancer Initiative paid its president, Greg Simon, who pocketed $224,539 in 2017 and $429,850 in 2018,” the outlet reported.

      “Charity Navigator’s primary criterion for rating charities is whether they ‘spend at least 75% of their expenses directly on their programs.’”

      Yet in BCI’s case, it’s not clear that a single dollar was spent on actually helping people.

      These findings by the Beacon add to the litany of already known evidence pointing to the whole Biden family being greedy Democrats in it solely for the money.

      “Biden’s son Hunter received $50,000 a month to sit on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma despite an apparent lack of qualifications,” the Beacon noted. “James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, joined a construction firm in 2010 that later won a $1.5 billion contract to build homes in Iraq while Biden oversaw Iraq policy.”

      But there’s more.

      Last year Politico revealed that Biden’s brother James had touted BCI in an investment pitch.

      “Joe Biden’s brother told executives at a healthcare firm that the former vice president’s cancer initiative would promote their business, according to a participant in the conversation, who said the promise came as part of a pitch on behalf of potential investors in the firm,” the outlet reported.

      “The allegation is the latest of many times Biden’s relatives have invoked the former vice president and his political clout to further their private business dealings.”

      Indeed, though nobody could have predicted that even a nonprofit ostensibly designed to cure cancer would wind up being caught up in the Biden family’s shady dealings as well.

      Now fast-forward to this past March, when word emerged that the FBI had raided one of James’ businesses in January.

      “The raid of an Americore Health hospital represented a deepening of the legal morass surrounding James Biden’s recent venture into health care investing at a time when questions about the business dealings of Joe Biden’s relatives, and their alleged connection to the former vice president’s public service, continue to dog his presidential campaign,” Politico reported.

      “In the weeks since the raid, two small medical firms that did business with James Biden have claimed in civil court proceedings to have obtained evidence that he may have fraudulently transferred funds from Americore “outside of the ordinary course of business,” and a former Americore executive has told POLITICO that James Biden had more than half a million dollars transferred to him from the firm as a personal loan that has not yet been repaid.”

    The American people are struggling to climb out of a pit of poverty and despair.
    While Mitch McConnell is putting his foot on their faces and pushing them back down into the pit,
    Nancy Pelosi is working hard to help them up and out.

    • Trump wants it for the PEOPLE, not for badly run states, the postal sevice, planned parenthood, the teachers unions, NO. He wants it for the people.

    • @Bern VENTER BS, you obviously don’t have any idea what in this bill, like the remodeling of the white house or upgrading the FBI building which is just doors down from the Trump tower in NY. The MILLIONS of dollars for brick and mortar is NOT supporting Americans.

    • They don’t care about hurting us. They just want to try to win the election. They don’t care because they have a lot of money.
      They have no conscience, this group of Democrats Politicians who have been in the swamp for decades are a Mafia.

    • Actually, the House passed a very generous bill over a month ago, and the Senate ignored it for weeks. They then countered by not only greatly diminishing the amount of relief they wanted to offer (fro $600 to $200), but they also snuck in a 100% write-off for business meals, _and_ a bill about moving the FBI buildng elsewhere (which would greatly benefit Trump financially). What do they have to do with feeding and housing America during this crisis? Republican ‘pork’ is now holding things up. Basically, Dems care, Reps don’t.

    Way 2 Go Nancy! Somebody gotta stand for us.

    • God is standing for those who do not qualify for unemployment having received NOTHING except $1200 since March. And I’m glad He is, because this has been the most disregarded group of people in this whole mess.

      Keep in mind, that 3k+ a month that you’re getting might be nice, but the longer you remain unemployed, the harder it will be for you to find a job when that money runs out. Employers don’t look favorably on gaps in employment, COVID-19 or not. Also, as employers adjust to operating with fewer people, they will be very reluctant to restore their headcount to pre-COVID levels. You need to be looking for a job as if you aren’t getting any unemployment boost, because the unemployment *WILL* stop and you don’t want to have to compete with everybody else who’s been at home making tik-tok videos since April. Pelosi won’t be able to help you then.

    Come on Republicans, sign the relief bill and stop being children. Families like mine are packed into one apartment like sardines. If it were your rich buddies it would have passed already.

    • You will continue to be packed like sardines if you mentally thinks that the Democratic party is your savior. You may wanna think about your whole view of life if the way you think is liberal. When was the last time the Democratic party ever lifted anyone out of poverty? Stop pointing you finger at these people because they will not make your life any better than yours or mines. Instead worry about how you can becomes a better person of character and change your lifestyle so you and your family do not need to be packed in an apartment like sardines. The stimulus check will only be short term. The real question is what will you do for the long term.

      Denna Luedecke The Republicans had a second $1200 check in the original Cares Act that was to be sent 6 weeks after the first one. It was Nancy and her Dem pals that negotiated it out of the bill only to add their own wasteful agenda. $25 million went to update the Kennedy Center where Nancy’s daughter is on the board. This is not FAKE NEWS, this is FACT. The Republicans know people are suffering and they care, but the Democrats put so much waste in the Heroes Act it is not worth looking at. Nancy and Shifty have more stuff they dream of passing, evidently Cannibus means more than jobs to them because they mentioned more in their Bill. The Republicans even tried to extend the 600 unemployment bonus for a week to help families in need, but that is not what the Left is really interested in. They do not want to pass anything that doesn’t include their agenda because they are using people like you and I to add the crap in the bill that the Republicans will have to allow just to get people help that need it. We are being used. Just like black people that don’t even realize it was the Republicans that freed them from slavery, but they keep voting Blue. How is it working for them? Wake up and smell the coffee!!!!! Trump and the Republicans have done more for America, the middle class, and Black America than any President ever. I do not like his ways, I wish he would stick his Twitter, but Fact is……America is first under Trump.

      It is a FACT, Nancy put a $25 million donation to update the Kennedy Center where her daughter is on the board in the first stimulus package. This is after she took out the plan the Republicans had to follow the first $1200 check with another one 6 weeks later.

    • Jeff Passmore | August 7, 2020 at 7:01 PM | Reply

      Denna Luedecke The Democrats load crap in these bills that only address their own agenda. In the Cares Act submitted by the republican controlled Senate there was to be (2) $1200 checks one 6 weeks after the other. The Democratic controlled house (Nancy Pelosi) denied the second check and instead included waste of money such as $25 million to the Kennedy Center. The Republicans had to pass this crap just to get us the help we needed. The Democrats are at it again with the Heroes Act, lots of wasteful spending. The republicans would gladly give money to the people and have tried to pass separate bills to do so. But if people get the help they need, the Democrats can’t pass the crap they dream about. It is the Republicans that care about the middle class and those in need. Just like it was the Republicans that ended slavery, but every black person think it is the Democrats that do so much for them???? Trump has worked to help all Americans (America First). I am sick if zzz Pelosi trying to act like she cares, fact check me, the Democrats stopped us from getting a second stimulus check over 3 months ago.
