His campaign also filled in some additional details on Trump’s plan, which has evolved over the past 12 months.
They include:
Three tax rates to replace the existing seven.

They are 12 percent for individuals earning as much as $37,500 and couples earning as much as $75,000;


25 percent for individuals earning between $37,500 and $112,500 and couples earning between $75,000 and $225,000;

33 percent for individuals earning more than $112,500 and couples earning more than $225,000.

With his tax proposal most of the W2 wage earners here in CA are subject to the roughly the same tax increases as would be under Hillary, right? The only ones that would benefit, get a break are the very poor and the very rich, no?

So, here's what I don't get... The average middle class american and upper middle class's complaint has been that Obama/Hillary's tax proposals tax too much on the W2 higher income (yet, not wealthy) individuals/families. How is Trump's proposal any different?

Seems to me, both Trump and Hillary is going to end up shafting W2 wage slaves, again....

Side note... Trump now believe Obama was born in the U.S.

Phew. Glad we finally settled that one! (end sarcasm)

WTF, would have never thought my taxes would go up under a Republican. This is BS when both parties are squeezing the middle/upper middle.

Well, look on the bright side. If you're a republican, you can probably get birth control pills over the counter if Trump is elected...Lol

No evidence that he actually believes that. The statement was not from him but from his campaign. Besides the statement being packed with at least half a dozen lies, he said earlier this year that the only quote that matters is one from him directly. He's still a racist shit stain.

Well he admits it now. But he's blaming Hillary for starting the Birther controversy.

WTF?
