1990 - "Duplicates" premieres at L.A. Phil; concerto by CalArts Music School dean Mel Powell wins Pulitzer Prize [story]

U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement today regarding Tuesday’s vote on the Republican tax plan:

“The tax plan approved by my Republican colleagues in the House and Senate today is a gift to corporations and the top 1 percent at the expense of middle-class families.

“At a time when wages have stagnated and working Americans are trying to do more with less, this tax plan pulls the rug out from the middle class to give billions to those who already have so much. This is an attack on our values, and Americans deserve better.

“Instead of a real middle-class tax cut, 83 percent of the benefits of this bill go to the top 1 percent over the next decade. While corporate profits are at an all-time high, this plan permanently lowers the corporate tax rate and increases taxes on 57 percent of middle-class Americans over the next decade.

“Many California families will see a tax increase as a result of changes to the state and local tax deduction. And while millions of Americans are only one trip to the emergency room away from bankruptcy, Republicans have just voted to eliminate the (Affordable Care Act) individual mandate and leave 13 million more Americans uninsured over the next decade.

“If we really want to help working Americans, then let’s take up causes that would actually put money into their hands, like raising the minimum wage, making public colleges and universities tuition-free, and guaranteeing access to health care for everyone. There are far better ways to deliver to the American people, and I remain committed to fighting for them.”

  1. “Merry Christmas! My gift to you is taking slightly less of your own money from you.” – said no relative, ever.

    Tax cuts are not a gift.

    SCTV= dumb liberals………Why not post about all the good President Trump is doing……….Homeless rate down………unemployment down……Stock market up……….Open your closed minds fools!

    • Numbnuts. If that’s true then WHY DAFUQ DO THE RICH NEED MORE TAX BREAKS ?????????

    • You do realize the rich pay much, much more in taxes than anyone else, right? Reducing tax rates results in those who pay the most seeing the largest decrease in what they’re forced to pay. That’s simply mathematics.

      LMFAO, AT&T is laying off 4,600 employees (1.5 % of its workers) and a bonus isn’t a permanent wage increase, chump.
      Trumpanzees sure are DUMBER-THAN-BAG-OF-WET-MONKEY-TURD.
      Trump has been bragging about DOW smashing records, how he lowered the unemployment rate, 6 million job openings across America, corporations taking in profits and how the economy is booming BECAUSE of HIM, so do tell us WHY DAFUQ DO THE RICH NEED MORE TAX BREAKS ???
      Why NOT give us WORKING-CLASS a bigger tax break then ????

    • Von Vogel you sir are an idiot

    • So, with math, sirs, we should just apply a smaller percentage break to the upper brackets and give a bigger percentage break to the lower bracket. Or no cut to the highest brackets, raise their tax, give the lowest earners an even better percentage break.
      I don’t think conservatives understand our tax bracket system. The same cut percentages don’t have to be applied to every earning bracket.

    • Doesnt look like math is your forte. For a simple example, cutting an earner of $1M’s taxes by 1% reduces his taxes by $10,000. Cutting an earner of $40K’s taxes by 10% (basically eliminating his taxes) reduces his taxes by only $4,000. This results in the lower income earner paying almost no tax, but still enjoying all government services. Services the higher income earner still pays for in the hundreds of thousands he’s still paying in taxes despite it’s going down by $10K. How is that a fair system?

  3. Angelo Sans Angelo Sans says:

    Why don’t you get a clue why don’t you support the president Harris maybe you need to get on board with the president an support him you just like all the other scum in Washington.

  4. Jeanne says:

    Thank you President Trump for keeping your word!
    I will have about 100 each month more starting in Feb. on 2018.

    My daughter with 3 kids will have over 7000 more starting in 2019 with the doubling of the child tax credit to 2000 for each child.

    Okay Matthew, feel free to send your tax cut back if you don’t like it. Or re-gift it to a charity.

  5. Jeanne says:

    Harris was a traitor to the California voter and worked to overturn the votes of our citizens. I hope we can vote her out of the Senate one day and see to it she NEVER gets anywhere near the white house.

  6. William Reel William Reel says:

    Because California has such a booming Middle Class😂😂 keep drinking the caca Kool Aid Libtard voters.

  7. Shane Weeks Shane Weeks says:

    Funny that she doesn’t mention that it doubles the standard deduction that 70% of Americans use….

  8. She can always donate her tax savings to to the national debt.

  9. Chad Hayford Chad Hayford says:

    She’s just another lying idiot

  10. We make over 100 k a year. In 8 years I have not seen a refund or any break. Finally we get one. Libs want to give a handout with our money never a helping hand up. Keep people on welfare so they can take more of my earned money. Haha. Go Trump.

  11. Oh shut up you waste of space! Self serving politician!

  12. Tom Duran Tom Duran says:

    Well then all those rich dumbocrats in congress give more to charitable groups. When was the last time dumbocrats created a plan to put people back to work. Corps. should be based here in the USA not over seas. With the tax rate cut they will come back here.

  13. She is such an airhead…she knows nothing …

  14. It is their only argument! Shame in the liberals for refusing to allow the working class their break from being over taxed, and paying for the liberal state to continue their programs to build their constituency. That in itself is the reason why Trump won the presidency! The Liberals threw the working class under the bus!

  15. Travis says:

    Just like Clinton and Obama, another Democrat is going to have to come in and fix the economy that the Republicans screwed up.

  16. I always laugh when I hear kamilla as a President possibility. The liberals have no chance for generations

  17. Judi Diamant Judi Diamant says:

    There’s so much over the top hatred out there from conservatives. While I understand people want to pay less taxes, they seem oblivious to the fact that taxes pay for our infrastructure. You know. The infrastructure Trump said badly needs repairs (something we can agree on).

  18. Really cuz I’m getting a gift out of it

  19. If people like Kamala Harris are pissed off you know its a good thing. The Armageddon language coming from Pelosi makes me think the success of this bill threatens their power

  20. Tami Gurnett Tami Gurnett says:

    I bet her taxes are going up. All these rich Cali reps won’t be able to write off all those state taxes they pay so there taxes are going and that’s why there whining.

  21. Jeff Goenner Jeff Goenner says:

    Yes give those that know how to run a business and hire millions of workers a tax break. Thats their argument? Stupid liberals

  22. Humm, has a liberal ever been hired by a poor person? A dozen corps. Just offered to hire more,give bonuses and bring funds back to U.S.Comcast,MSNBS owner, giving bonuses.ATT,BOEING,etc. it’s a win for Americans that the liberals tried and couldn’t stop!
