The purpose of this is to debate a Bill before it is added. Debate can center on whether the Bill should be passed or not, or it can center over which lobbyists care about the Bill in question. Some Bills are unconstitutional or simply redundant, so if this Bill is one of those, it won't be added in the first place, so feel free to debate that, too. Have fun.

Good idea, but..
In the state of the economy and our growing deficit doing this would make our budget even more unbalanced. I would support this bill, but not at this moment in time.

The bill you have provided above does not stimulate the economy. I cannot see any possible reason or way that cutting taxes on businesses earning less than 120,000 dollars a year will help anyone besides the people controlling those small businesses.

sales tax, etc
state sales taxes are not the pervue of the federal government.

the sorts of tax cuts you are proposing do not mean people will spend more on consumer goods that drive our post-industrial economy. there is already so much consumer debt that this money will go to pya interest and such, thus fattening further the wealth of the multinationals.

I's suggest the bill be rewritten to focus on small businesses/farmers. Set a federal cap on interest small businesses have to pay on loans. Raise taxes on the multinational corporations and put that money in a pool that could be loaned to small businesses at no interest for ten years, pr until that business reaches a certain net profit.

I have absolutly no support. I would, maybe, have support if logical ways to earn enough money to pay this off would work. However, the ways to cover up the financial crisis this would put us in are needed.

Coming into this, I did a little research on some things, and this is what I found:

"Social security is primarily a social insurance program providing social protection, or protection against socially recognized conditions, including poverty, old age, disability, unemployment and others."

Planning to cut 12 billion dollars into a social insurance program will most definitly hurt the organization and what it is intended to do. Why cut 12 billion dollars out of a program that helps everyone in america simply to help businesses? I ask why you would take money away from a a social insurance program that helps everyone who actually needs help and spend it on businesses that don't necissarily need the help.

My next question is what exactly is misc.? I will not be approving a bill to cut things from programs without knowing exactly what is being cut from.

NASA science is focused on better understanding Earth through the Earth Observing System, advancing heliophysics through the efforts of the Science Mission Directorate's Heliophysics Research Program, exploring bodies throughout the Solar System with advanced robotic missions such as New Horizons, and researching astrophysics topics, such as the Big Bang, through the Great Observatories and associated programs. NASA shares data with various national and international organizations such as from the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite.

Why cut 40 BILLION dollars from a scientific program that is helping to solve bigger issues throughout our nation and out world than taxes? It just doesnt add up.

I don't know how much money will be used in cutting all these taxes and ask one member to pull up some information about that. However, I have a strong feeling that it equals more than 55 billion dollars.

As for cutting taxes for business, I do not see how this will stimulate the economy, seeing that they only earn about 120,000 dollars a year, I doubt they will be hiring much. This simply wont stimulate the economy.

On the topic of poverty, we can definitly tell that this would help the 10% or so of people who are unemployed and in poverty. However, thats only 10% of the population. Why cut taxes from the other 90% who can easily pay these taxes?

All in all, I will not support this unless things are changed.

Yoou need to come up with a bill that does not involve Somewhat cloneing and take credit.

Cloneing? No.
I offered an alternative bill to the bill you have created. This is not cloneing. Furthermore, it was a more bi-partisan approach to tax relief (and it frankly still does somewhat fall to the right side of the aisle a bit.) I take credit for the alternative bill because I did propose it.

I actually like it. You have my vote
Evan Palin- This could work. It will help improve agriculture and make life more affordable by lowering all these taxes. However To much lowering taxes could keep us in debt.

This is still absurd. Stripping away money form Social Security? Are you going to increase allocations for medicaid and food stamps then?

And, may I ask; what federal food tax? What federal housing tax?

Are you proposing to force states to lower real estate and and sales taxes on food?

If we're just making things up; I'd like to suggest lowering the federal tax on clarinet playing, and increase the federal taxes on trumpet playing (with an exemption for herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass cover bands).

I like the adjustment on federal taxes on small and large businesses.

And, while I oppose human space flight as being a waste of time and money, I oppose stripping NASA of money used for robotic and satellite exploration.

And Berlac; bipartisanship is for the weak and for those afraid of the GOP. Like your absent president!

I do support, but we must do some things first
I love the bill, I want to cut taxes also if I was a senator. But we must cut government spending FIRST so we will have the money to cut taxes, plus reduce deficit.

As a candidate currently running for the house of representatives I do support the cutting of taxes, but also the cuts in wasteful government spending. The entitlement mindset of this country will only further this great country into a deep hole that we will never get out of.

We can not afford such tax cuts. You're looking at trillions of dollars being added to the deficit.

Instead, lower taxes on small businesses 5% and put in place a $5000 tax credit for hiring. That is almost certain to create jobs.

Although I am all for tax cuts, are we going to cut welfare funding? Food stamp funding? It says in here it won't affect illegal aliens. Why not? Make them pay taxes too! They should pay more taxes in my opinion!

from Joshua Crowder (R)
I love this bill because cutting taxes is something that voters have been longing for for years. And if you want proof of that, look at George H. W. Bush. He promised to cut taxes and that is the main reason that he was elected. But when voters realized that he had lied about the tax cuts they hated him for it.

1) The federal government should not intervene with state tax policies such as sales tax, housing, marriage, food, and etc. States know what it takes to balance their budget, and it sounds like federal over reach.

2) Cutting income and business tax would further expand the nation's deficit which is already up to 80 billion. Therefore, the spending cuts should equal the tax cuts plus 80 billion.

Lowering taxes has proved to NOT help the economy.

Corporate taxes exist to help stimulate the economy. Due to the way that the wealthy work, they prefer to invest rather than pay taxes. Due to tax breaks favoring investments, an increase in corporate taxes will result in companies investing MORE and hiring MORE employees in order to avoid paying taxes on their profits.

This bill is simply a prime example of entitlement that the wealthy have.

Cutting income and business tax will only further expand our nation's deficit. We can't afford to cut spending as much as those tax cuts would require us to do in order to fix our deficit problem. Our business taxes are already at a historical low. We can not afford to lower them.

We are currently facing a deficient, not a surplus, i feel as though your tax decreases are to large and will ultimately hurt our economy at this time. In a perfect world, our economy would be thriving enough that we could initiate your tax decreases, but unfortunately this is reality. And by increasing the taxes on large business you will effectively hurt the work force that our country prospers on.
