Kamala Harris Wants To Buy Jeff's Vote!

Quote:
Washington (CNN)Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, a potential 2020 presidential candidate, proposed new legislation on Thursday aiming to provide tax breaks for low- and middle-class Americans.

The new bill would give tax credits of up to $6,000 per year for households earning less than $100,000 annually, which comes out to $500 per month. Individuals earning under $50,000 per year would be eligible for tax credits up to $3,000 under the plan.

Harris' bill aims to offset the rising cost of living throughout the country, but with Republicans in control of both chambers of Congress, the proposal has very slim chances of advancing on Capitol Hill. The proposal, however, allows Harris to position herself politically as to how she thinks the nation's tax system should be structured. The announcement comes as she travels the country in an effort to campaign for fellow Democrats ahead of the midterm elections and setup a possible 2020 presidential bid.

Of course the "tax cuts" will be "refundable tax credits," meaning that the Jeffs of the world will be able to claim the credit having not actually paid any taxes. 

The best part for Jeff will be that she wants the credit to be "refunded" on a monthly basis so Jeff will have that UBI he's so eager for.

I hope Harris proposed some spending cuts to go along with her "Tax Cuts".

Without spending cuts, there would be deficits and more money would need to be borrowed, worsening the debt. (debt interest which is paid by taxpayers)

I think she is going to run on a promise that the Donald Trumps of the world will have to pay for through tax increases.  Or maybe literally just Donald Trump and his kids since so many billionaires sponsor the Democratic Party.

I've been paying taxes to the federal government since 1963. I'm still paying. I won't qualify.

I wouldn't vote for Harris if she was the only candidate on the ballot, which the democrats would probably like to see happen...

Edit: Did I mention that I like it when you slander me? Smiley

I don't pay much attention to her, but I bet she's got a laundry list of spending increases.

No one who pays taxes would speak of them as lovingly as you do.

I don't like taxes. My ideal is a libertarian paradise where everybody respects everyone else's rights and uses good common law precepts to settle torts, which is all there will be.

There will be no crime because everyone will be following the NAP, so arbitration will easily settle all the accidental damages that arise... But everyone, out of respect for others and the NAP will be willing to take responsibility for harm they might accidentally cause, so no one will every need to be forced... Shoot, you probably won't even need arbitrators.

You can see that there will be no need for government, so I won't have government taking some of my money every year. Smiley

Taking Harris seriously, because she sounds dangerous, does she intend to expand the program that has existed for decades? How will it be funded?

"Refundable tax credits" doesn't make any sense, but neither does paying money before any tax has been assessed and found to be due, and then getting a refund of your own money which you never owed in the first place. Cheesy

From the sounds of this, Harris won't need to buy any votes!

"Los Angeles County, whose more than 10 million people make it the nation's most populous county, had 12% more registered voters than live ones, some 707,475 votes. That's a huge number of possible votes in an election."

Democrat kingpins suggest that their voters should:

"Vote early, and vote often!"
