My reason for publishing this series is to document the factual positions that Trump has actually promised he would use to improve every one’s life in America, white, black, and yellow. He has never shown any bias except when dealing with inept individuals. There is no place on earth populated with more inept people than Washington D.C. I will repeat my reason for trying to get voters to make sure we elect a leader with a proven success record. Liking Trump is not a factor and the other individuals who are capable leaders I could support like Cruz, Fiorina, Carson or Kasich have zero chance of being nominated as they don’t have enough financial support. The rest of the candidates are pure politicians that will promise everything and deliver nothing.
If you will get beyond not liking Trump’s boisterous demeanor and focus on his agenda you will see that his overall objectives are aimed at common sense objectives that will help everyone. I don’t agree on some of his objectives or his flamboyant persona but if he can just get jobs created alone he can stop the bleeding. How many of the people running for President, both Democrats and Republicans, have created as many jobs for Americans as Trump has?
How many politicians have we watched that have promised to fix the federal tax system? How many actually changed the system? None. Trump has promised to not only make it better for all individual Americans, but also to find ways to encourage businesses to remain in the US. He has promised to develop incentives to attract foreign businesses to move to America. His objective is to make America the most attractive place in the world to do business. Sure that is a real challenge but it is possible with a proven leader motivating Congress to perform sensibly again.
He has promised to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. I have read that this would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs. His plan is to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax. He also wants to create incentives to companies that agree to move jobs back to the USA.
Trumps tax plan would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. The facts that I read reveal that his recommended personal income tax plan will be:
- Income up to $30,000 will be taxed at 1%.
- Income from $30,000 to $100,000 will be taxed at 5%.
- Income from $100,000 to $1,000,000 will be taxed at 10%.
- Income from $1,000,000 and above will be taxed at 15%.
Trump has gone on record that Obamacare is a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity”. He is convinced it “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He feels certain that allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace will drive prices down. Trump supports tort reform to eliminate the costs of defensive medicine and the outlandish cost of malpractice insurance. Trump is on record that Obamacare must be repealed. Based on his comments about the Canadian healthcare program I believe that Trump will support a single payer healthcare system.
Unlike most conservative writers, a plan that demands that all able bodied Americans pay into the plan is the only common sense solution to all of the problems. This would help everyone and the doctors who are having to find other occupations because of the insurance penalty. If lawyers were required to pay malpractice insurance, it might even the playing field.
Trump wants Congress to enact severe spending reforms. He pin points that it is only common sense to understand that spending more than you receives in revenue is absolute failure. He has gone on record that if America can’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion, no one will be able to save this country.
He has made it clear that we must cut spending. He has promised that he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. His plan is to revive and increase the economy by increasing the taxable revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients.
Trump has documented his objection to the only solution the Democrat’s ever have, which is raising taxes. History has proven that every time they raise taxes they destroy the economy. Trump is right in his belief and history proves that when you lower taxes you create an environment to help businesses grow, hire more workers and those new workers will be paying taxes that increase revenue. This is nothing more than “Business Common Sense 101”. C Brewer
