Study: Biden Tax Hikes Will Cost 1 Million Jobs in First Two Years

Breitbart

Published

on

The study, released Thursday, details the long and short-term damage to the economy inflicted by Biden’s tax hikes and repeals of Trump’s pro-manufacturing policies.

NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons summarized the studies findings:

“After decades of advocating for a tax system that provided competitive rates and modern international tax provisions, manufacturers in America kept our promises following the enactment of the 2017 tax reforms: we raised wages and benefits, we hired more American workers, and we invested in our communities. If we undo those reforms, all of that will be put at significant risk. Manufacturing workers will lose out on jobs, growth and raises. We should be building on that progress, not rolling it back. But the conclusion of this study is inescapable–follow through with tax hikes that give other countries a clear advantage and we’ll see far fewer jobs created in America.”

The study, authored by Rice University economists John W. Diamond and George R. Zodrow, calculated the effects of increasing the corporate tax rate to 28%, increasing the top marginal tax rate, repealing the 20% pass-through deduction, eliminating certain expensing provisions, and taxing capital gains as ordinary income for individuals earning $1 million or more.

They found that the U.S. would lose one million jobs in the first two years, GDP would be $117 billion lower by 2023, and ordinary capital, or investments in equipment and structures, would be $80 billion less in 2023.

“There are some who are well-meaning and have suggested that the U.S. corporate tax rate should increase, but not by as much as the 28% proposed. Unfortunately, what that means is that America will still lose jobs and investment, just not quite as much. America just can’t afford that, especially now,” Timmons said.

No Surprise: Majority of Americans Believe Fake News Media is in the Tank for Joe Biden — Because They Are and Don’t Even Hide It

President Trump was right.
The liberal media may be more dishonest than the Biden porn family.

So it should come as no surprise that the fake news liberal media continues to lose the trust of the American people.

Via Rasmussen Reports:

Distrust of political news reporting remains high, and more than half of voters believe the media are in the tank for President Biden.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 33% of Likely U.S. Voters trust the political news they are getting. Most (53%) do not. Fourteen percent (14%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on April 1 and 4, 2021 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

It’s no surprise the fake news continues to lose the trust of the American people.
Pravda would blush at their tactics.

Fact Check: Major League Baseball Moves All-Star Game over Law that Expands Some Voting

Breitbart

Published

on

VERDICT: FALSE. The new Georgia law actually expands some voting, contrary to claims by Democrats and the media.

MLB became the latest victim of a hoax about Georgia’s voting law when it announced Friday that it would move the 2021 All-Star Game out of the state. In a statement, MLB said it supports voting rights and “opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”

Major corporations based in Atlanta, such as Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines, have also criticized the new law harshly. But as the Wall Street Journal noted in an editorial Thursday, “They’re denouncing Georgia’s election law, but have they read it?”

Fact-checkers have already taken President Joe Biden to task for false statements about the law, as Breitbart News noted:

“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” [Biden] said during last week’s news conference. The following day, Biden claimed the law ended voting hours early “so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.”

However, Biden’s assertions are not accurate. Election Day hours in Georgia, which are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., have not changed. Those in line by 7 p.m. are permitted to cast their vote.

“Nothing in the new law changes those rules,” the Washington Post reported.

Georgia’s law did, however, make changes to early voting, but the Post explained that experts said the “net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them.”

Critics have also claimed that the law prohibits people from drinking water while waiting in line to vote. In fact, voters are permitted to drink “self-service water from an unattended receptacle.” The law bans a practice called “line warming,” in which party operatives hand out water or other goods to people outside polling places, using the opportunity to campaign.

The local Atlanta Journal-Constitution issued a correction after claiming the law limited voting hours: “A previous version of this story said the new law would limit voting hours. On Election Day in Georgia, polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and if you are in line by 7 p.m., you are allowed to cast your ballot. Nothing in the new law changes those rules.”

The law limits the early voting period before runoff elections, but Georgia’ early voting period is still more generous than that of some other states, including Biden’s home state of Delaware. Georgia allows no-excuse absentee voting, unlike other states — including Delaware and the state of New York, where baseball’s Hall of Fame is located.

Many other provisions of the Georgia law make voting more accessible, not less. For example, it formally allows drop boxes, which were just a temporary measure in the 2020 election.

By MLB’s own logic, therefore, it is supporting “restrictions to the ballot box” by pulling the All-Star Game out of Atlanta.

And since Democrats consider all “restrictions” to voting to be “voter suppression” motivated by racial animus, MLB’s move could be construed as racist. That is especially so given that the brunt of its decision will be felt by Atlanta’s predominantly African American community, including local business owners.
