Hey, Trump supporters, let's solve a little math problem together.
>Pedro the Mexican sells t-shirts in the US that his family made for ten dollars each >Trump's 20% tax is put in action, which would force Pedro to pay some of his earnings to help build the wall >Pedro decides to raise the price of his t-shirts to around 12 dollars, so he can pay Trump's tax while still making a profit of around 10 dollars for each t-shirt sold >US citizens now have to pay 12 dollars instead of 10 dollars for Pedro's shirts >Who paid for the wall?
>America gives Mexico millions in aid each year >America reconsiders aid program, and allocates those funds to build a large wall >How many mexican corpses are necessary for the wall to maintain structural integrity?
>>720876860 I like tomatoes. I pay the costs of supporting the tomato industry. If you like Mexican goods, you pay the cost of supporting them. This is simple economics, kid. You should be embarrassed.
>>720876860 Here's another fact, princess. End-use consumers pay for everything. There is no VAT tax, corporate tax, or any other kind. They are all Stupid Taxes, i.e. politicos know that you are too stupid to realize, so you will ask for more taxes to punish your enemies, like Exxon.
>>720876860 here is this, there is currently a 40% death tax that would have been raised to 60% under hillary. that means 60% of your inheritance (if any) would go straight to the government. your family may not have much to leave behind but do you really want to just hand over 60% of your family's wealth upon their death?
>>720877136 Not OP but are you sure it's not you who's autistic? $10 was an example, I'm sure products from Mexico are still going to be cheaper than products from the US. Especially if you kick out all the illegal workers and US companies have to raise there prices to cover higher wages for US workers. The supplier won't have a choice and will have to pay the extra 20%.
>>720878237 What's so funny about that idea is that if Mexico is receiving millions in aid from the United States, what makes you think they can pay back billions fit the wall. We give them an allowance, how could they pay our salary?
>>720879803 That's actually completely inaccurate. The "estate tax" only applies if the value of the estate is worth more than $5,490,000. Otherwise there is no tax. That amount necessarily excludes 99% of you hillbilly trump chumps.
>>720881608 While no doubt it would hurt Mexico it will hurt the US too. All those cheap products from Mexico are going to suddenly get more expensive. And even American made products once manufacturers raise their prices to cover their increased wages. It's the lower, to middle class Americans who are really going to feel this. Ironically the same people who voted for trump.
>Nacho Pedro sells for 12 >Price gap between mexican and American T-shirts is now smaller >American T-shirts sales rise >Pedro will have to drop his price or sell less >Wasnt import tax to keep businesses/jobs from getting shipped overseas, why do you bring the wall into this, unless you want us to give an answer to a flawed statement??
>>720881937 Exactly. If you make over $100,000 per year, then you are in the top 10% of income in The United States. If you make over $400,000 per year, you are officially in the top percentage of American wealth.
It is reasonable to say then, that approximately 5% of the population at maximum will ever even have to worry about that tax. Unless you make six figures a year for a LONG time, then you will not likely amass over 3 million dollars worth of liquidatable assets to give away as inheritance.
Besides, our founding fathers wanted to tax the shit out of inheritance because they were fearful of inherited wealth and power. You know, like what a certain King had.
>>720882396 So how much do wholesalers pay for shirts from china? You must be in the fashion or import business right? Or maybe you're just a retarded trump supporter with no idea what you're talking about? I'd bet the latter.
