It never fails, these predatory capitalist thugs are big fans of Ayn Rand. I hope their souls rot in hell, NOW. Colbert gave this technocrat bloodsucker one big pass, very disappointing. And Colbert said he might vote for JEB! Geez, excuse me while I vomit. Has he seen Jeb's tax plan? Massive tax breaks for the wealthy and the corporations, otherwise known as trickle down economics on steroids.
Bush's proposal is to cut the number of individual tax brackets from seven to three, taxing income at 28 percent, 25 percent and 10 percent. Currently, the top marginal income tax rate is 39.6 percent.
His proposals would double the standard tax deduction that most filers take, end what Republicans call the “death tax” on estates of the deceased and seek to make marriage more beneficial for tax purposes.
Mr. Bush also proposed cutting the corporate tax rate to 20 percent from 35 percent and giving incentives to invest domestically. In other words, starve the beast to disable government and destroy all the social safety nets like Social Security and Medicare.
