    Default How Will Each Candidate's Tax Plan Affect You - Use This Calculator

    This simple calculator tells you how each presidential candidate's tax plan affects you. I am sure this isn't accurate on any level really, but I am sure it will be fun once you enter you numbers. Prepare to owe Bernie Sanders an arm and a leg.

    Well doesn't this all depend on Congress too? Last I checked we have a legislative branch. So I looked at the increase with a Sanders plan and I figure since he wants single payer then just used that part of my federal tax increase figuring it would pay for my health insurance and its more than I'm paying now for it. I like both of the republicans plans. And Clinton would basically keep it status quo which is where it will stay anyway if she or Bernie wins and Congress stays controlled by republicans.

    The calculation methods change dramatically once elected.

    None of their plans will effect me one bit, because none of them will become law.

    People still don't seem to understand that Congress makes the laws. The President may have an opinion, but the House Ways and Means Committee is really where US tax law starts, not the Oval Office.

    Thank God. Bernie Sanders does Robin Hood much better than Kevin Costner did.

    No surprise I guess--I would be paying far less under Trump's plan. I'm surprised that while I'd be paying less under Cruz, it's not as significant.

    As for the whole Congress thing, if our last President is any indication of how laws will be passed in the future, whoever is elected will probably get what they want.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    People simply don't realize that government affects them in the reverse order their care about it. Local, then county, then state, then Congress, then President.

    The Republican Party could have stopped any legislation from becoming law over the last seven years. Just because they bend over and grab their ankles whenever Obama says "cough" is not his fault.

    Outside of military action, it is really not that powerful a position in terms of lawmaking and policy making. BUT, the influence of the office is where the power is used to bend others to the President's will. They aren't four year Monarchy's, but Congress has acquiesced so much power out of laziness, fear, or who the hell knows what, that the Executive branch is more powerful than I believe it was ever intended to be.

    They are all on the same team
    The Council of Foreign Relations.
    I posted links to it several weeks ago. Seems no one wishes to educate themselves.
    The lesser of two evils are the only choices we are given.
    Tyranny has been upon us for 100 years. But tyranny with no bounds has been running rough shod across the backs of every American Citizen just prior to the end of WWII.
    There are only two types of history: conspiratorial and coincidental. As the rights of all American Citizens continues to erode, guess which type of history has surrounded your everyday lives without anyone truely realizing it?
