I’m supposed to care whether Donald Trump gets rich(er) during the next 4-8 years. But I don’t give a fuck.

Trump’s agenda would boost his bottom line

Donald Trump stands to personally profit from the legislative agenda he is expected to push in his first 100 days, raising questions about whether he can separate his financial interest from his public office without totally cutting ties from his business empire.

The top items on the president-elect’s policy checklist — from rewriting the tax code to scrapping Wall Street regulations to repealing Obamacare — have for years been Republican orthodoxy. But Trump could see a direct benefit to muscling through broad tax cuts and eliminating regulations: billions of dollars in new savings for him and his family and fresh revenue for his business portfolio, according to a POLITICO analysis of Trump’s public statements and financial disclosures and interviews with tax experts.

“It’s kind of unprecedented that a president would be proposing tax and regulatory changes that have such a significant benefit to him and his family and presumably his business partners as well,” said Leslie Samuels, a tax attorney and former senior Clinton administration Treasury official. “It’s a combination of changes that have a potential for a material benefit of a large magnitude.”

The Republican tax code overhaul is expected to include across-the-board tax cuts, including one to the top business tax rate that would allow Trump’s companies to keep a greater share of their profits. Beyond the rate reduction, Trump could also benefit from several other provisions likely to be part of the GOP tax reform package, such as a proposed exemption on foreign income generated from overseas sales, from certain business interest deductions on debt-financed projects that are widely favored by real estate developers and from provisions allowing small business owners to tap into a lower 15 percent rate while filing through their individual returns.

And Trump’s family stands to significantly benefit — an estimated savings of $4 billion or more if the president-elect’s personal wealth is “in excess of $10 billion” as he has claimed — from a repeal of the estate tax, a tax on inheritance that applies to only a small number of the country’s wealthiest families.

The rich will always get richer. What really matters is how the not-rich do. I honestly do not care how much money Donald Trump makes. I care whether I can pay my bills. If I get a little bit richer while Trump gets a lot richer, I’m okay with that.

If Donald Trump doubles my retirement savings, I really do not give a fuck how much he makes.

  1. I’ve been up all night. Watching “Cocoon” with old people getting frisky.

    how many congress critters got rich while in public service? most of them do not look too poor to me.
    just wondering

    • mcnorman says:

      We’re in the same boat as Mexico. Just take a look at Vicente Fox, the voice of the poor (well, that was then). My own “poor” congresscritter (aka another community organizer) secured a motherload of money for his next campaign from an entity that he secured a mother of a contract for “helping” the VA.

      DT is already rich, he has a vested interested (as they all do) in staying that way. It was that asshole Obama that plunged this country into the abyss. 8 long years of wrecking the middle class in order to give the SJWs something to thank him for.

      • lateblum says:

        My congress critter is married to the guy who had to resign from the DNC because of the tactics used during the campaign (Bob Creamer). He and his wife, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, are wealthy beyond wealthy. He was imprisoned for bank fraud a few years ago and doncha know, he was using evil against DJT this summer.

    • DeniseVB says:

      The Obamas went from $0-$12 million in 8 years. That’s been attributed to book sales and “wise investing”. The Clintons got very wealthy running a charitable foundation. Those samples concern me more than whatever benefits Trump already lifetime of running a profitable corporation, warts and all.

    • Constance says:

      And then there is the Clintons, They made millions “working for the government”. How does that happen?

  3. DeniseVB says:

    I couldn’t watch this current liberal PSA video until Mark Dice gave it his treatment. So sad to see Sally Field and Steve Buscemi stoop to this level.

    • elliesmom says:

      I recognized those two and Rosie Perez. The others could be random folks from the phone book. Which makes me wonder if my grankids will even know what a phone book is.

    • AFVet says:

      Re:, Sally and Steve are RISING to this level, for the good of the country and all that stuff.

    • helenk3 says:

      when Trump had his casinos how many of these fools were more than willing to put on shows there?

      • DeniseVB says:

        Probably all of them. Many vintage news stories show him hob-nobbing with the very celebrities bashing him now. The Clintons attended his wedding to Melania ! LOL, doesn’t get more hob-nobby than that.

    • Venus says:

      I recognized those 2 plus Rosie Perez — was that one guy Toure? He’s not a “celebrity.”

      Also, these dumb fucks don’t understand the difference between a majority and a plurality. That’s why they should stick to reading lines other people wrote for them.

  4. foxyladi14 says:

    Bottom line.
    What is good for Trump, Is also good for the rest of us.
    Make it so!!! 😀

    • Constance says:

      I agree. The left will not be happy with however much Trump removes himself from his businesses so I would say he shouldn’t even try. Pass off the ones he doesn’t want to deal with to his kids and go forward with his plan. Don’t let the Libs drag you down and they will try.

  5. dm says:

    Just had a quick conversation with my brother this morning…Trump is going to destroy Ocare, Medicare, SS and he is fundraising to pay his transition team, i.e. his kids…that wasn’t the worst part of my morning, death of a friend, 16 yo dog taken to the pound…worst birthday ever. It is completely pointless “talking” to the opposition. All I tell him (them) is you can’t cherry pick your “facts”, especially when they come from WaPo, and I understand the hatred, cause as much as they hate Trump, I hate Obama, so I won’t denigrate or argue their views. We all just get to wait and see what happens…sigh, it’s been an exhausting morning.

    • Lulu says:

      They have gone into fantasy land with horrors that are going to happen to keep up their outrage.The Ford Motors good economic news sent them into a binge. It is sad when it is someone you know. Hopefully they will burn out soon.

      • Constance says:

        It’s really odd, the Libs think up the worst they can and project it on Trump and his voters and then rage against it. They seem unaware that they made up the whole scenario. It’s surprising how many mentally ill people there are. This behavior must really suck their energy.

    California Hires Eric Holder as Legal Bulwark Against Donald Trump

    Ok kids, here’s your tutorial on “Dabbing”. I had no clue either and always thought myself as a hip, cool grandma 😛

    Another one of their jokes? It’s not funny.


    Amazon Sells Book With Blank Pages On Why Donald Trump ‘Deserves Respect’

    Author David King has released a book full of blank pages called, “Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration.”

    • Constance says:

      That is a great marketing move. I wish I thought of it. David King sounds like a Republican businessman in sheep clothing.

    • ecoast says:

      Someone should “write” a similar book titled “Obama’s achievements” and put it up on Amazon.

    Open question, how does one place a tweet on this blog ?

  14. helenk3 says:

    so far Schumer is not impressing me much. not much difference between him and reid. do not even pretend to try to work for the betterment of the country. the party and backtrack’s legacy is more important to him. not in the best interest of this country

  15. CiscoKid says:

    Give WHD a peek today.
    Keith has some interesting and good news, imo.

  16. lateblum says:

    Trying the “new” info on copying tweets….

    • CiscoKid says:

      Andrew Cuomo ‏@NYGovCuomo
      If the ACA is repealed,
      -2.7M New Yorkers would lose coverage
      (A)-It would impact the State budget by $3.7B
      (B)-Counties lose ~$600M in funding
      How does A affect State budget? $3.7B
      Same for B $600M.
      I’m confused.
      Is this money from fines?
      Or is it taxpayers money? If it is then to me that’s the real reason Dem’s don’t want O-care repealed.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Federal Money doesn’t cost anybody anything, silly. It’s completely free. Try harder to pay attention after this.

        • helenk3 says:

          did over forresting kill all the money trees? Is that why backtrack grabbed all that land so the federal government would be the only ones to have money trees?

        • CiscoKid says:

          A week or two at the re-education camp will straighten me out.

  17. Dora says:

    The nuts seem to be out all over.

    A link to Legal Insurrection re Schumer’s thoughts about using the “Nuclear Option” and nominations to SCOTUS…

    One of the best comments following the article is “He’s definitely funnier than Amy”.

  20. lyn says:

    An HBO documentary was completed before their deaths. It looks sweet.

    • lateblum says:

      I “heard about this” just this morning. I’m (sadly) looking forward to watching it.

      • lyn says:

        I’ll have to wait until I subscribe to HBO for a month via amazon, but it looks good. I want to see it.

  22. Dora says:

    Why is it any of their business?

    • helenk3 says:

      years ago when I applied for a job at the Phila Inquirer one of the questions asked was Is your sex life normal. At the time I was married and had 3 kids. My first impulse was to ask what is normal? but I wanted the job so I just said yes. that was over 40 years ago. I thought that had changed and it was illegal to ask now.

  23. helenk3 says:

    random thought
    has anyone done a study on whether American citizens are moving out of or into so called sanctuary cities?

    I would not want to live in one, would not feel safe

  24. helenk3 says:

    did anyone see the story about the kid and the Alexis?
    the kid asked for a dollhouse and cookies. Alexis ordered a $400 doll house and a large tin of cookies.
    Apparently no one thought that kids in the house could make a big difference when you own one of these
