    Default Labor ramps up campaign against Trump tax cut for the rich

    I am furious beyond words. I am so glad I am not one of the people that fell for Trumps lies. Not that it does anyone any good. He was elected and now what do we do?

    WASHINGTON — Led by the AFL-CIO, more unions are speaking out against the Republicans’ tax cut for the rich, saying the middle class – and union members – will wind up footing the bill.

    The statements, urging members to contact their lawmakers in a mass campaign against the measure, came as the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee started work on November 6 on the legislation.
    The tax bill, including new provisions, would bar deductions for state and local taxes, medical expenses, casualty losses – except for those from the three recent hurricanes – and even the $250 deduction teachers get when they shell out their own money to buy pencils and papers for their low-income pupils. AFT President Randi Weingarten said on the union website the average teacher spends $945 yearly on such school supplies.

    I posted about this in another thread.. It should be up to the school districts to give their teachers the tools to do the job.. They should not have to go out and buy $945 worth of supplies.. This also happens in the LTL part of trucking.. How many non union companies require their drivers to buy pallet jacks.. R & L and Estees comes to mind.. I also knew guys at NewPenn YRC Roadway and Redstar that had their own pallet jacks..Some were bought and others "found\" them on some shipping dock somewhere..

    But there again you say Trump lies.. Seems anyone that disagrees Lies..

    Has the deduction for tools needed for the job been eliminated?

    I won't know until I sit down to do taxes this year. That was an allowed deduction at one time. Along with dues to our Unions.

    Doubt if you know this year. Highly doubtful even if they get the so called tax reforms done that it will be good for 2017. Most likely start in 2018.. .

    Now I have to wonder just how this will work out for the thousands of charter schools?

    It should be considered part of our education system and be subjected to the same rules.

    Again I will say this as you seem to make it about education and I assume your talking about teachers.. They should not have to buy supplies period. School boards should supply them
    Let the school boards worry about the tax deduction.
