Brady vows GOP tax plan will bring ‘relief’ to Americans of all income levels

Rep. Kevin Brady, the House’s top tax-code writer, on Sunday defended the chamber’s overhaul plan against criticism that many middle-class Americans will pay more and turn voters against the Republican Party, vowing relief for all Americans.

“Here is where I strongly disagree,” Brady, R-Texas, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, told “Fox News Sunday.” “I believe there is tax relief all up and down the income level for families, regardless of what they earn.”

The lawmaker is defending the plan against criticism from congressional Democrats and two analyses, including one in The New York Times that concluded one-third of middle-class families will get a tax increase.

“They’re describing an America that doesn’t exist — one where the economy never grows and one where your paycheck stays stagnant no matter what happens,” Brady said about The Times analysis. “I strongly disagree.”

    Kevin Brady and the Republicons want to give relief alright. They want to releave the middle class of their hard earned Taxes and give them to the RICH and CORPORATIONS. 40% of all Fortune 500 Companies paid NO TAXES last year. Then they received refunds of Millions of dollars that middle class Tax payers had paid in. Of course, THAT money was then transferred to hidden accounts off shore so they won’t have to pay taxes in the future. Wow, what a system, huh, folks!!!!!

    Relief? For me in the middle class, Representative? My income is about average for Americans in retirement, so what I read of tax ‘reform’ so far is not helpful. We retirees need more help in the forms of more tax exemptions and deductions. You double the personal exemption but take it away by eliminating tax and medical deductions. What’s the gain there? Meanwhile you and your rich donor friends with lower brackets (we need an expansion in that number), estate tax elimination (our estates don’t reach a million dollars) which are saving you millions of dollars. That’s hardly equal or fair and don’t wave that postcard return in front of me, a joke reducing expansive tax code to that simplicity even for retirees. We need more progressivity in brackets, more brackets, rich paying their proportional share since they have benefitted most from American culture and economics. Give me a break, not ‘the richest people’ in the nation, as Columbia economist Jeffrey Sacs said today, a payback to donors owning billions in assets and income. And all of this expands the debt when we really need more jobs to increase wages and hence disposable income.

      Billy, take some time and explain what you consider “fair”! Currently the top 10% pay over 70% of all federal taxes. The top 1% consists of those having an adjusted gross income of $480,930. If you adjusted gross income is over $138,031, you’re in the top 10%. There are 45.5% of households that will pay ZERO federal income tax. So, you tell us all what’s “fair”! You’re still a looney liberal hack and don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground. Go out and help OFA (Obama) destroy this country.
