Have you figured how much you personally will pay if they can't get the tax cuts passed?

Fill in the worksheet and it tells you approx how much you'll be required to pay under each plan and what you'll pay if they can't get their heads out of their asses and pass anything.

    If im correct, the tax cuts republicans are trying to pass are for those who make 250K or more a year... I dont happen to fall into that category..

    You are incorrect. The tax cuts apply to everyone, they are arguing if they should include those who make mover 250k or not. If nothing passes, you lose yours, too.

  • I don't understand any of this shit, but I did the little worksheet:) We would have to pay $7800, which is $3200 more than last year. It said something about this adjustment would be the same under the republican and demorcrat plan.

  • I doubt they will take tax cuts away from those who make less. Honestly I feel I have nothing to worry about. Regardless of what is going on I think the only issue will ultimately be if the upper class gets cuts too. Which, I dont think they should. Sorry.
