Under Trump Americans Are Losing Money And Healthcare

By Bryan Wright 100 Comments September 12, 2019


According to new data released yesterday by
the US Census Bureau incomes for American workers here in the United States did not
increase in 2018 well I guess that’s technically untrue because they did increase by 0.9% but
the Census Bureau says that that number that increases statistically insignificant due
to the fact that inflation also increased. So real wages essentially remained stagnant
and for those following along at home with your recession Bingo card, stagnant wages
is one of those boxes you have to check off before you head into a recession. So that’s a bit of horrible news for everyone. But here’s the thing, last year, 2018 the
year for which our wages did not increase across the board was also the year that the
corporations had their massive tax cuts. Cause keep in mind it was passed at the end
of 2017 and immediately went into effect for corporations starting on January 1st of 2018
so we operated all last year with the corporate tax cut American taxpayers. For those of you who got a tax cut that didn’t
go into effect until January of 2019 I personally know my taxes did not change one bit whatsoever. And statistically, most working Americans
taxes didn’t change at all. And if they did, they probably went up according
to IRS statistics. But nonetheless, wages are stagnant. They told us this tax cut was going to give
us all raises. They said four to $9,000 extra in your pocket
every year. It was a lie. And now the federal government itself is coming
out and saying, you didn’t get more money last year. This is an in controvertible fact. You cannot argue it. It is a fact. They ran the numbers and you didn’t get a
raise. but they told you you would. It gets worse. In addition, in 2018 an additional 2 million
people in this country lost their health insurance. So we went from a 25.6 million without health
insurance in the year 2017 to 27.5 so just under 2 million people lost their health insurance
last year. So again, under Donald Trump, under republican
rule, you’re making less money and you’re losing your health care. But to be honest, that pretty much should
have been expected folks. It’s what happened during the Reagan years. It’s what happened during the bush senior
years and it’s what happened during the George W. Bush years and now it’s happening during
the Trump years because that’s what Republican policies do. They take money out of your pocket, they give
it to the wealthy elite and they lie to your face and tell you that somehow it’s going
to trickle down. They also tell you, the Democrats want to
force you to have health insurance. How authoritarian is that? No, you shouldn’t be forced to have health
insurance if you want to die from a preventable disease, that is your choice. Republicans tell us and so they do everything
they can to make us lose our health insurance. And that’s what this administration has done. That’s what Republicans in Congress have done. You know, they took away the tax penalty for
not having health insurance and so people drop their insurance and that is not good. But that is exactly what Republicans wanted
to happen. This is the result of their policies and it’s
been the result of their policies for 40 years. You vote for Republicans, you end up with
less money in your pocket, you end up with less healthcare coverage and the wealthy elite
do better than ever.

Those some turd supporters will never see it coming in face I bet they still welcoming it even thought they know it's going to harm them. But for the rest of us who seen this coming we need to do more to stop this from ever happening. It's the same thing again with Russiancans makes a mess of the country and some Democrats have to fix it again. But this time I think it's start to show a little more with the turd approval ratings getting lower. Some of the his supporters now realize those tax cuts are not helping. The only thing to do now is to let them know to vote these Russiancans people out of congress and get people in that will do their jobs that they was sent there to do.

Republicans stick to the same, decades-old lies no matter how many times they're disproven and wonder why no one wants to talk to them. They prove themselves incapable of change and reasoning, then turn around and say democrats are the ones that won't negotiate.

Problem is, is the raise you got because of the Tax Cut is being taxed at end of the yr… RepubliCon's don't tell you that part… I heard that if you claim zero on your W4 form and then claim one (yourself) or your dependents if you have children at the end of yr…

Even my mom, the die-hard trump supporter, had to acknowledge she didn't see any change whatsoever in her taxes. My personal favorite though is how my copays jumped from $10 to $60 to $300 in less than 2 years. What's the point of paying out of your check if you have to pay more than that to actually see a doctor?

The Nothing Nobody

In fairness, the "argument" I see isn't that Dems wanna force people to have insurance, it's that they want to force people to go OFF of their insurance and onto a government plan. Which, really, is just a fearmongering point used to scare people to want to keep their 'good, all-American' insurance, which is screwing them over all the time while raking in money hand over fist. Is Medicare-for-all gonna necessarily solve all our problems? No, it isn't. But I'd rather take a government plan that EVERYONE ACTUALLY GETS, then a for-profit system.

The other big scare tactic I see is that idea of 'Oh you'll have to pay 90% of your money in taxes!', which isn't a total lie, just only mostly a lie, considering that a high tax rate would be only on the rich, and how popular the idea of the 1% paying a high income tax is. Nobody actually likes the rich not paying taxes, and the rich know it. So they try and scare people into fearing 'socialist' programs that are so awful and get people to vote against their interests by saying how bad a government program would be, all while insurance companies and other wealthy elites pocket everything, and give nothing.

I don't know why Americans go completely silent when I bring up the following: Forget about the tax cuts. If the 1% were to be paid just 2% on the accumulated $30 trillion they have but are not spending, that interest payment would completely overwhelm the entire 2018 GDP gains of $560 billion.
2% interest is nowhere near the actual amount of interest (free money) the 1% are piling up at the expense of our national economy, because S&P500 index funds have been paying over 9% since 1994. We simply cannot have $30 trillion chasing a "rate of return" in a $20 trillion annual economy without depressing wages or increasing cost on housing and health care (just to name two).
Where is the outrage?

Today the top 1 percent of households own more wealth than the bottom 90 percent combined. How much proof do these Trump-turds need that Trump's tax cuts did not benefit the working class/middle class? Trickle-down policies does not work for anyone except those already rich. Wake up and smell the covfefe–it stinks. The Trump-turds are coming after your health care next.

Trump is a piece of shit no doubt about it. But if people think that ACA was good, then why did Obama set it up with the Insurance Giants and Big Pharma to maximize profits while Americans were paying insane deductibles?
Other than progressives, when was the last time a Democrats or a Democrat President actually cut our taxes? Obama made Bush's tax cuts permanent and Obama took us from 2 wars (Afghanistan and Iraq) to 7. Obama signed the domestic surveillance act so the NSA could continue spying on all of us. Trump is a piece of shit because he's a narcissistic greedy bastard, you really think the corporate checks that Hillary took and Obama somehow makes them better but not Trump? And if Trump is as psychopathic as corporate Democrats and corporate media says he is, why the fuck would they vote to increase the military budget when more Republicans voted against the increase than Democrats did. And you know who didn't vote for the increase? Gabbard, Sanders, R. Paul. If Trump is in bed with Russia, why give him a bigger defense than requested? Why did Trump send more battle ships to Mediterranean and increase the number of SOF?
I fucking hate Trump, but he is not the reason for the problems we have today. These problems have been on going for 30 years and because Hillary fucking Clinton acted like we owed her our vote and rarely campaigned, rigged the primary against Sanders, destroyed servers with proof of rigging the Primary, lost to Trump and suddenly the DNC days Trump and Russia rigged the election? WTF! We have Trump because of the corrupt policies and politicians who have been fucking over the American people for 30 years and because Trump is fucking us, suddenly it's all his fault? Bullshit. You truly want change and want a glimpse into that future? Look at Venezuela. A socialist country that pulled itself out of poverty and gave the citizens free healthcare, free education, taxes the wealthiest, who happen to be white people through generations of migrants from Europe, and now that the country is thriving the U.S. tried to pull off a coup 3 times and have failed to put their corporate why neocon in charge so we can take their oil and the Military Industrial Complex, Wall Street, and Banks can all align their pockets while keeping the people poor and suppressed so the elite can rule. If anyone thinks Trump is the problem and Biden, Warren, and Harris are going to do something about the broken system, you're absolutely indoctrinated into propaganda. The system isn't broken, it's fixed. And not in our favor

That age old question politicians always ask "are you better off today than four years ago?" has definitely been answered and the answer is "hell no!". Millions losing healthcare, corporations allowed to poison the environment, going backward on any efforts to combat climate change, becoming a laughing stock around the world and the daily assault of ignorance from Trump's twitter feed are just a few of the ways we are worse off. The only one who's better off is Trump and his cronies who're looting the treasury to line their pockets.

No raise and I owed $500 instead of getting back around $1000. However I'm glad they dropped the individual mandate (penalty), it was never the way to go about assuring everyone had healthcare. What would work is either 1) Single payer / Medicare for all , or 2) Having affordable options that are good. Lets be honest the plans offered through Obamacare were neither affordable nor good coverage

Even Fox Business acknowledges that workers who earn under $75,000 annually will have to pay more tax by 2027; yet tRump cultists still deny that fact by pointing to their… one-time bonuses & meager wage-increases which inflation wiped out with little efforts; as if other working-class tRump critics don't exist.

Awww quit complaining about your wages people! At least you have a job! You're not walking so you can have your cars! You seem to have plenty of money to keep up with your tech crap! How may of you who whine about your wages are STARVING? None of you! How may of you whining about your wages are homeless? And I mean HOMELESS not living in your car and calling yourself homeless? NONE of you! What do you get paid? 10/hr? 15/hr? Is that the going rate? When I was working it was 4.25, then 5 then 6. We seemed to survive and life wasn't exactly cheap!

Get your own health insurance! Stop depending on the government to provide you with it! My goodness in my day and my parents day we paid for our own! Before Trump you complained about wages! Before Trump you crabbed about health care expecting the government to help you while yammering about Poor trying to get health care help which is still not adequate!

Maybe if you stopped seeing a doctor over every little sniffle…maybe if you stopped wasting your money on tech crap, Lottery and scratch off tickets, plasma TV's the size of football fields…

The whiny Middle Class could have the best health care and complain, be paid 100/hr. And find something to crab about!

Before Trump you complained, now you complain, and when we get Trump replaced you'll whine!

Then you could have Government Tax financed "free" Healthcare for all democrats and Insurance Company Tax based Healthcare for republicans. Then republicans will pay twice as much as democrats and still not be sure that the Insurance Company will pay if they get seriously sick.
