Dem’s $3 Trillion Tax Hike Hurts Working Families and Small Businesses

The Democrats’ almost $3 trillion tax increase proposal would deeply impact small businesses and working families. “This is the largest tax increase since 1968 compared to the size of the economy and the largest tax increase ever in nominal dollars” reports the Americans for Tax Reform website.

“Raising taxes on working families by increasing the federal corporate income tax rate from 21 percent to 26.5 percent” will be passed along to working families in the form of “higher prices, fewer jobs, and lower wages.”

As a result, the U.S. will have a combined state-federal rate of 30.9 percent. That rate is “higher than our foreign competitors including China, which has a 25 percent corporate tax rate, and Europe which has an average rate of 21.7 percent. The developed world average (OECD) is 23.5%” reports the website.

The Tax Foundation’s Stephen Entin states a tremendous 70 percent of corporate income tax is a burden to “labor (or workers)” in the form of wages and employment. In a 2020 study, the National Bureau of Economic Research found that 31 percent of the burden falls on consumers.

“A corporate tax increase will threaten the life savings of families by reducing the value of publicly traded stocks in brokerage accounts or in 401(k)s” as well as “higher utility bills as the country tries to recover from the pandemic.”

Small businesses will be impacted because “raising the top income tax rate to 39.6 percent, limiting the 20 percent small business deduction, expanding the Obamacare net investment income tax, limiting the ability of passthroughs to deduct excess business losses, and raising the corporate tax rate.”

The painful plan also increases the capital gains tax rate to 28.8 percent, adds a 16.5 percent global minimum tax, and increases the death tax by cutting the exemption level in half. Not to mention, $80 billion in new IRS funding would allow for the hiring of 87,000 new agents. “This would allow the IRS to audit and harass small businesses and American families for an additional $787 billion. It would hire enough new IRS agents to fill Nationals Park twice.”

    Biden wants to pay for his social engineering programs by taxing all wage earners in the form of higher prices, which we’re already seeing as well as higher income taxes. The country is embracing socialism and is being run by a demented, senile, mindless puppet controlled by the extreme left.

    A Convention of States is the only solution big enough for this problem.
