West Virginians say 'no thanks' to GOP tax bill -- Nov. 29

 
Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017


8:00 am -- As Congress moves closer to a possible vote on the GOP's so-called "tax reform," two West Virginia financial and policy analysts will share their thoughts on why the bill must be killed.  Kat Stoll, an economic consultant affiliated with West Virginia Together for Medicaid, and Ted Boettner, Executive Director of the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, are among representatives of a dozen WV organizations -- health care, family and education advocates; church groups; policy analysts; civil rights and labor organizations -- that have united in a common cause: to tell Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) "No thanks!" to the tax bill. It "would increase the country's deficits by giving away massive tax cuts to wealthy individuals and corporations, while giving families, students, people in recovery, and small business owners even less to be thankful for in the coming years," they say in a statement. More details are available at  https://www.facebook.com/events/162919361109635/   Please urge your family and friends to check out these figures and call their senators, telling them to definitely vote  NO

Moose Turd Cafe is on deck!

'Modern-day slavery' -- Nov. 15


Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017


7:30 am -- It's the brutal and sometimes deadly trafficking of human beings, most exploited for sex and labor -- what some activists call "modern-day slavery." We'll speak with two seemingly very committed people fighting it in the Eastern Panhandle and other parts of West Virginia -- Rita Nieman, of the Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force, in Shepherdstown, and Penny Kay Hoeflinger, founder of an organization that runs a site where young people "can heal from the trauma they endured while at the hands of a trafficker." They're 
reaching out to the young being trafficked in schools as well as to adults. Among the latest projects: a recent teach-in at Shepherd University and the proposed funding and training  of some 70 emergency phone counselors for use throughout West Virginia. It'll hopefully result in more effective participation by the state in a hot line run by the National Human Trafficking Resource Center.

Middle class tax benefits would drop over time, rise for the 1%, says analysis -- Nov. 8



Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017


8:00 am -- Alan Essig, Executive Director of the DC-based Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), will discuss his group's analysis of the GOP's so-called "tax reform" and jobs bill -- thoughtless legislation designed to lose  many of its tax benefits for the middle class over a period of time, according to ITEP.

It's another thing, of course, for the rich. The bill would provide "significant savings to foreign investors" and, of those tax cuts that would benefit Americans, "nearly a third would go to the richest one percent in 2018, and by 2027 that fraction would rise to nearly half," ITEP, a non-profit, non-partisan research organization reported Monday. Richest Americans Benefit Most from The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act  "Some of the provisions in the House bill that benefit the middle-class -- like lower tax rates and fewer brackets, an increased standard deduction, and a $300 tax credit for each adult in a household -- are designed to expire or become less generous over time," said the report. And for the wealthy? Some provisions "become more generous over time," according to ITEP.

How might the tax legislation effect West Virginia ?  What do we do about the 1 percent's offshoring of much of its $$$   "Paradise Papers,"    Paradise Papers Underscore Why Lawmakers Should Focus on Offshore Tax Avoidance  ?    Hopefully we'll get a chance to discuss those as well.

You can join the conversation by calling The Winners and Losers Radio Show at 304-278-4113.
