If you make $75,000 a year or less, you’ll be taxed much higher by 2027

Owing to the recent tax bill currently being supported by Senate Republicans, individuals earning less than $75,000 a year can expect to see higher taxes by 2027. Those earning less than $30,000 a year will see their taxes increase by 2021 if the bill is passed and enacted.

What’s more is that individuals earning over $100,000 a year would enjoy lower taxes in the years to follow. According to The Washington Post, these statistics come from a recent report released by Congress’s nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT).

The GOP’s bill will also remove the Obamacare provision that requires all Americans to buy health insurance. The Congressional Budget Office predicted this removal would lead to 13 million more Americans dropping their insurance due to higher premiums caused by the GOP bill.

Middle and lower-income families and individuals will be paying higher taxes by 2027 because individual tax cuts will go away by 2025. The GOP bill specifically states that business tax cuts will remain, but individual tax cuts will expire.

On Thursday, November 16th, the House Republicans voted on and passed their version of the tax reform bill. The Senate Republicans passed theirs through the Senate Finance Committee, and the full Senate will vote on the bill after they return from Thanksgiving break.

The House bill is making an effort to simplify the tax process by hacking the existing seven tax brackets down to four. They also want to remove many of the existing credits and deductions, and replace them with a larger standard deduction.

House passes GOP tax reform bill on 227-205 vote. Bill gets no support from Democrats, and 13 Republicans vote against it.

Some of the deductions that would disappear are medical expense deductions, tax credits for plug-in electric vehicles, tax benefits for college, and the deduction for theft.

If you don’t wish to see your taxes spike in the next ten years, call your senator now and ask them to vote no on the Senate Republican tax reform bill.

Question: I can t function for longer than 12 hours. Why? Hypothyroidism?

I wake up before 9am, eat breakfast and immediately work on my projects (I work from home), I have little breaks during the day, often I get sleepy even like 2 or 3 hours after waking up but I manage to work okay until the clock hits 9pm, then I suddenly feel so tired I cannot force myself to focus on anything. That s every day for me for the past couple of months even though I always get at least 8 hours of sleep, would lack of exercise or social interaction be causing this?
I do also experience muscle and joint pains, depression, dry skin so could this be hypothyroidism?

If you make $30,000 or less, you’ll be paying way higher taxes by 2021

Senate Republicans are currently pushing their tax reform bill that, if passed, would cut taxes for the wealthy and increase taxes for middle/lower-class families. According to The Washington Post, families with an income of $30,000 or less per year will see higher taxes by 2021 if this tax reform is passed.

On Thursday, November 16th, House Republicans passed their version of the tax reform bill with 227 votes in favor and 205 against. The Senate’s version passed through the Senate Finance Committee Thursday night and now awaits clearance from the full Senate. The Republicans backing the bill and President Trump are banking on the reform bill to be passed by the end of the year.

A statement released by the White House claims, “This legislation cuts taxes for middle-income families and empowers American businesses to create more jobs, increase wages, and propel our economy toward a brighter future.”

The Senate bill would drop the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20%, and would temporarily change individual tax rates and deductions. It would also abolish the Obamacare rule, which states that Americans must buy health insurance or pay a penalty.

But the Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress’ nonpartisan analysts, released a report showing that tax increases would hit the lower/middle classes within the next five years ,whereas individuals making more than $100,000 per year would continue to pay less as times goes on.

Republican Senator Ron Johnson says he is voting against Trump's Tax Plan and openly admits the main benefactors are big companies and CEOs.

Senator Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), heading authorship of the GOP tax bill, doesn’t believe the Joint Committee on Taxation’s findings to be accurate.

“Anyone who says we’re hiking taxes on low-income families is misstating the facts,” he stated, according to The Washington Post. “Obviously we have no intention of raising taxes on those families. Every Republican on this committee has been committed to providing tax cuts for every income cohort.”

Did you see this → The House PASSED the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act! Yesterday’s vote is a major step in turning the page on 31 long years of hardworking Americans struggling to find good-paying jobs, make ends meet, & providing for their families. #1182MOREhttps://t.co/zNTG4r3VAy

Now’s the time to call your senators and ask them to vote against the GOP’s tax reform bill. The Senate will vote when they return from Thanksgiving break, so act now and let your voice be heard.

Prince William reveals his signature dish to cook at home — but pregnant Kate can’t eat it

Prince William the chef!

The royal dad, who helped judge a charity cook-off Friday to benefit young homeless people, admits he’s not a total natural in the kitchen, but he does have a go-to dish.

“I do like cooking, but I’m not very good,” he said at the event before revealing his signature dish.

“I like a roast. So a bit of roast chicken or a steak,” he said. “I like it medium rare. I like it quite alive.”

William better have something else on the menu other than undercooked meat! Kate Middleton, who is expecting the couple’s third child in April, would be advised to stay away from raw meat during pregnancy.

The royal had no trouble critiquing the rival teams of chefs, who were taken with cooking mackerel with citrus dressing, sesame seeds and heritage carrot.

“Is that it?” he asked Sean Tompkins, chief executive of he Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), who was cooking with Rihana Senay, 21, a London student who has been homeless three times since she was 14.

Inspecting their dish, William had the audience laughing when he asked: “Is there anything on that?”

William, who is patron of the youth homeless charity Centrepoint, made a passionate speech on the subject, one close to his heart since he and Prince Harry were taken to homeless shelters by their mother Princess Diana when they were young.

“Homelessness affects every single community across the country. Shelter’s figures this month must shock us all – at least 1 in 200 people in this country sleep rough or do not have a secure home.

“Yet the figures ignore – indeed, they cannot even count – those young people who are often called ‘sofa-surfers’. When a young person is forced to leave home, their first option can be to stay with someone, anyone, who has an available place to sleep.

“When I meet young people in this situation, I see the very human face of this outrageous statistic, I hear the individual stories of young people who have lived through, or are living through, this situation now.

“I am determined to do what I can to help end the situation where bright, able, and ambitious young people are left vulnerable and without a future.”

Question: My life is ruined?

Im 16.
I have 0 friends apart from one who sleeps with everyones boyfriends and what if I fall in love with a guy and she finds him hot she would sleep with him no doubt! shes sleeping with her cousins husband so i doubt she cares about me!
I get homeschooled due to bullying
I got beat up the other week for no reason
Ive fallen out with most of my friends even though my so called friends were using me for my money and were always horrible to me anyway.
The friends who want to know me dont want to anymore because i never use to stay round their house and they live so far away and its so difficult to get there and back and I have anxiety.
Because I got beat up and fallen out with everyone im worried about leaving the house incase it happens again or worse as i fell out with my mate and she got her friends to contact me.
Im using guys just so I can get some attention in my lonely life and sleeping around just so I dont feel useless.
I sit at home doing NOTHING all day apart from message a few lads who just want to use me and i have no real friends to hang out with and do things with!
I get homeschooled but I dont even revise because im so lazy and feel so stupid! I did have job but I quit after 2 days because it was so far now im worried about getting another one incase people from school or my ‘ex’ friends see me and want to beat me up!
My family are great but I feel so trapped in my house here and I cant wait to move out but I have nowhere to go its just no motivation here.

The first “Incredibles 2” footage is coming tomorrow, and where is our super suit?

Disney just teased a major announcement and it’s going have you breaking out that super suit.

It’s been thirteen years since The Incredibles taught us that not all superheroes wear capes — because no capes! — but Disney just announced that the first teaser for the highly anticipated Pixar film The Incredibles 2 will air during tomorrow’s (November 18th) ESPN College GameDay broadcast.

The sequel picks up directly where the first film left off, as the superhero family must face off against a new threat, The Underminer.

Holly Hunter (Helen aka Elastigirl), Craig T. Nelson (Bob aka Mr. Incredible), Samuel L. Jackson (Frozone aka Lucius Best), Sarah Vowell (Violet), and writer/director Brad Bird (Edna Mode) are all reprising their beloved characters from the first film. Huck Milner will be replacing Spencer Fox as Dash while Pixar staple John Ratzenberger voices The Underminer.

Over the summer during D23, Disney’s biannual convention, Bird revealed that the sequel will find Bob finally attempting to master living a suburban lifestyle, as he needs to focus on raising the Jack-Jack, the Parr superpower-wielding toddler. He told the crowd, “Elastigirl and a certain chain of events put her at the forefront of the action, while Bob has to stay home facing his biggest challenge yet.” 

During the convention, Bird also revealed that since the Parr’s home was destroyed at the end of The Incredibles, the sequel will find them in a brand new home that’ll also doubles as their superhero lair — and is full of sharp corners. Welp, it looks like Bob has some serious baby-proofing to do!

Tune into ESPN’s College GameDay Broadcast to catch the very first teaser for The Incredibles 2, which flies into theaters — sans cape —on July 15, 2018.

Gigi Hadid & Katy Perry Will Not Be Allowed at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show–Here’s What You Need to Know

The most highly anticipated fashion show of this year is due to air on November 28 from Shanghai, China and as of today it looks like quite a few of our favorite models and stars won’t be attending. 

I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it to China this year. Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!! Can’t wait to tune in with everyone to see the beautiful show I know it will be, and already can’t wait for next year! 🙂 x

— Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) November 16, 2017

Gigi Hadid took to Twitter to announce that she will not be able to make it to the VS show this year, which is featuring in Asia for the first time ever. It’s suspected that Hadid was denied a visa based off a controversial video she posted on Snapchat this year where she mocked Asian facial features.

In addition, Katy Perry shared that she too will be missing out this year. Many speculations surround her absence, among of which are visa denials and perhaps in Katy’s case, offending the nation with her controversial costume back in 2015. During a performance in Taiwan, Perry, who is already known for her unconventional fashion, adorned an outfit covered in sunflowers, the symbol associated with anti-Chinese student protesters.

However, Alessandra Ambrosio and many other top models will still be in attendance, including SaraSampaio and (kween!) Karlie Kloss who will be returning to the runway after a two year absence.

 

See you in Shanghai @VictoriasSecret

A post shared by Karlie Kloss (@karliekloss) on Aug 30, 2017 at 2:17pm PDhe VSFS lineup is always a little unpredictable

In addition to Karlie’s epic return, our other favorite Hadid sister is confirmed to attend this year, wings and all. Bella Hadid took to Instagram ready to announce her second time walking this year.

The VSFS lineup is always a little unpredictable––just last year, Kendall Jenner kept us wondering whether we would see her on the runway until the very last minute, and what an awesome surprise that was! So keep your fingers crossed and your favorite angel just might show up.

Will you be able to see the Leonid meteor shower? Here are the best places to be

Will you be able to see the Leonid meteor shower? Here are the best places to be


Will you be able to see the Leonid meteor shower? Here are the best places to be

On occasion, the cosmos will do something wild that reminds us of how cool life can be. Perhaps there’s no better example of this than a meteor shower, when we get to see shooting stars, make wishes, and learn about the night sky in a new way. Since this weekend marks our annual Leonid meteor shower, we’ve got the inside scoop on the best places to see the Leonid meteor shower, no matter where you are. This year’s meteor shower will span across Friday and Saturday, so you’ll have ample time to get your meteor gazing on.

The good news? Saturday’s new moon will allow you to get a great view of those clear skies. The bad news? This year, we can expect only 10-15 meteors per hours. Yet, this year, we can expect bright fireballs, which weather.com explains:

“Leonid produces these fireballs because the remnants of the comet hit the Earth’s atmosphere with the same kinetic energy of a car hitting at 60 mph. Most meteors strike the atmosphere with the kinetic energy of 45 mph, according to EarthSky.”

While we can expect less meteors, we will get a greater kick! The best time to view the meteor shower is before dawn, somewhere where there’s little to no light pollution. And make sure to give your eyes 15 minutes to adjust, so you can really take in the fireballs and shooting stars. If you’re in the Rockies and the Southeast, you’ll have the best viewing conditions of the shower all weekend, according to weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce.

Chris breaks down each region’s best time for viewing the showers. He explains,

“On Friday, viewing conditions may be clear in parts of the Ohio Valley, Southeast and mid-Atlantic. A storm system in the West will obscure the sky in much of that region and also in parts of the Upper Midwest and Plains states. On Saturday, a frontal system will bring extensive cloud cover to parts of the Mississippi Valley, Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Mid-South, as well as parts of the interior Northeast, while portions of the Southeast Coast, mid-Atlantic Coast and the Gulf Coast may have the best shot at a clear view to the east of the Rockies, Dolce said. Viewing conditions will be much improved compared to Friday across the Rockies westward to California.”

In case you can’t make the early dawn hours work, evening works just fine too — especially for viewing “earth grazers,” aka meteors that move across the sky horizontally at much slower speeds and for longer distances. So even if you don’t get two days of perfect weather to view the shower, there’s a good chance you’ll still be able to see some magic! So grab a loved one, a cozy blanket and some good music, head to the middle of nowhere (but stay safe!), and enjoy the meteors.
