Hillary's tax plan: Increase taxes on capital gains. Any retirees out there pulling from their IRAs or 401ks?

Trade:- Declare China A Currency Manipulator- End China’s Intellectual Property Violations- Eliminate China’s Illegal Export Subsidies And Other Unfair Advantages- Lower the corporate tax rate to 15%- Attack our debt and deficit - Strengthen the U.S. military and deploying it appropriately in the East and South China Seas.
Taxes:- If you are single and earn less than $25,000, or married and jointly earn less than $50,000, you will not owe any income tax. That removes nearly 75 million households – over 50% – from the income tax rolls. They get a new one page form to send the IRS.
- All other Americans will get a simpler tax code with four brackets – 0%, 10%, 20% and 25% – instead of the current seven. This new tax code eliminates the marriage penalty and the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) while providing the lowest tax rate since before World War II.- No business of any size, from a Fortune 500 to a mom and pop shop to a freelancer living job to job, will pay more than 15% of their business income in taxes. This lower rate makes corporate inversions unnecessary by making America’s tax rate one of the best in the world.- No family will have to pay the death tax. You earned and saved that money for your family, not the government. You paid taxes on it when you earned it.
The Trump tax cuts are fully paid for by:
Reducing or eliminating most deductions and loopholes available to the very rich. A one-time deemed repatriation of corporate cash held overseas at a significantly discounted 10% tax rate, followed by an end to the deferral of taxes on corporate income earned abroad. Reducing or eliminating corporate loopholes that cater to special interests, as well as deductions made unnecessary or redundant by the new lower tax rate on corporations and business income. We will also phase in a reasonable cap on the deductibility of business interest expenses.

YtownParent: "So do we want to fight the devil we know or the one we don't have a clue about."
Here's the problem with that: We know HRC based on the facts over 50 years. http://www.wnd.com/2015/05/here-they-...
Hillary is an experienced politician and Donald the outsider is not. Funny how dishonesty does not get Hillary into trouble but honesty from the Donald sure causes him to get noticed. He resonates with the people and has Capital Hill uptight. They're afraid that if the Trump train arrives, the Gravy Train is about to depart.
While a businessman he took advantage of our laws and loopholes but in office he will put a stop to the egregious ways our country is being taken advantage of.
He is spending a fraction of what Hillary spends yet he is holding his own. Does it impress you that Hillary will be spending BILLIONS of $'s on her campaign. Just think of what that money would have paid for in our cities and towns if better spent.
Watch what happens after the convention. Hillary is about to become casualty #18.

I don't understand how someone with a record of theft, forgery and receiving stolen property could work in a tax collectors office. Surely there are people out there who applied who don't have a record. I hope that in this case the arrests were all after he was employed.
His latest is a 15 count indictment: theft, theft in office, forgery and receiving stolen property. Was indicted twice before for similar charges.
BTW, our tax check generated by online banking went uncashed for 6 months. The bank notified us and we reissued the check. In the meantime we got a late notice with penalty which was removed after we completed the form to explain. Hummm... wonder how many others?

Although intentions were good, we thought we could use our country's natural resources for oil/gas rather than depend on other countries but we now know that the cost to our environment and life is huge. At what point do we look at the damage and say "what have we done?". This needs to stop. It is disgusting to know that some think that money is more important than health.

Cambridge: you too can help bring back jobs in this country by reading labels. You have a choice. Save a few pennies or buy American. Most people would rather save a few pennies.

Only reason food stamps and welfare checks will be cut when Trump takes office is because Americans won't be on the dole... they will be back to work.
Hillary couldn't care less if anyone can afford her tees or hats because she gets her money from lobbyists, foreign countries and wall street.
