    Millennial Who Pays $0 In Taxes Outraged She Will Still Pay $0 In Taxes

    PALO ALTO, CA—Local millennial and part-time retail clerk Cady Benson expressed her outrage Tuesday over the new Republican tax plan, which will force her to continue to pay exactly zero dollars of federal income tax in coming years, sources confirmed.

    Benson, whose personal tax burden for the past five years adds up to a grand total of zero, ripped the new GOP plan on social media. “Republicans sure know how to take care of their fat cat donor friends!” said a tweet from the 25-year-old, who has never had to pay any taxes on the money she earns working part-time at Patagonia while pursuing her degree in liberal arts. “This new plan is not OK!”

    Supply side was watered down after the recession of 81-82. Reagan ended up raising taxes to offset the loss in revenue. Maybe it will work this time. We have no choice but to hope so since it is now the law of the land.

    Amen. As we celebrate the birth of our savior, let us reflect upon his admonishment to lower taxes on the rich as we take health care away from those who otherwise can't afford it.

    Umm, there are plenty of people in my tax bracket who pay taxes and will now be paying more in 10 years when Trump is long gone. Most of the people I know. A Dem president will likely get the blame.

    God only requires 10 percent. And it's a flat tax.

    Yeah - and I don't buy that story about Jesus kicking the merchants and money lenders out of the temple. I think he'd be a big fan of our financial services industry - probably seek a career in it.

    If you want sheer hypocrisy on the deficit, than the Republicans are for you. At least the other is consistently apathetic about it. Didn't Clinton help get the deficit way down though?

    Clinton added $1.396 trillion, a 32 percent increase from the $4.4 trillion debt at the end of George H.W. Bush's last budget, FY 1993.

    Another Christian-hating liberal. How original.

    LOL. How does what I said make me a Christian-hating liberal? I dig that Jesus was apparently enraged by what he saw as over-the-top commercialism going on in the temple.

    Don't you realize that if you don't bow down to Trumpism. I also love how the alt right has turned Jesus into some sort of Ted Nugent with a halo figure. Completely going against his mission and message. Maybe we Christian hating liberals are more Christian some on here.

    It's like the 8 years prior never happened.

    I'd take it. Or a Hailey-Rubio or Rubio-Hailey. Or a Pence-Hailey. I'm flexible.

    I'd prefer it 2020 though.

    Haley would have been a promising choice up to the moment she started issuing threats to the UN and countries that didn't support the Jerusalem decision. Trumpism will hang around her neck like an albatross.

    Yes Nikki, we are sovereign. So is the rest of the world. They thought it was a horrible idea. Have a fun "friendship party" with the Togooans, er - whatever the people of Togo call themselves.

    Typical American: I'd like affordable health care.

    Conservative 1%er: Why do you covet my five mansions and fleet of $500,000 cars? That's not very Christ-like.
