So, Trump is giving corporations a 20% tax break and is taking away the tax benefit of contributing to your 401k. So he effectively took our money and gave it to corporations. Take that middle class.

OP didn't talk about wealth, that's correct. You did, EY4 and that's why I addressed you. I'm not a first generation college grad, so my comment isn't about my personal story. I just have enough common sense and empathy to recognize the advantages I have since my retired parents have a pension and long term care insurance, which is not the case for most first gen college grads. That helps me accumulate wealth. I will also have an inheritance. Please learn empathy.

Since I own stock in companies I would be pleased if they got a bump in performance. This would increase my portfolio and allow me to donate more to the causes that I really resonate with me instead of those that our wonderful politicians think are important and I could make that impact without government overhead.

EY4, that's not how this works lol. Your income tier is determined by region, metro area, etc. 80k for a single person household in Houston is great, 80k for a single person household in San Francisco is not at all middle class. That's why I have an approximate range. Check out this tool developed by Pew, it allows you to input your household size, state, city, and income and then it tells you whether you are lower, middle, or upper class/income. http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/interactives/middle-class-calculator/iframe/

EY4, you have completely missed the point. Your assertion that a household of 1 making 80k was not middle class is false, there are many areas of the country where 80k is solidly middle class. And even in the areas where it isn't, those making that amount can't afford this tax increase. The point is, why give corporations a 20% tax discount and then pillage working folks?

Is anyone else just over everything at this point? I’m feeling so down and unmotivated from everything that’s happened this spring (including having a miscarriage, my husband losing his job, and spraining my ankle on top of everything else happening in the last few months) that I can’t even bring myself to care about work anymore, and I feel like it’s affecting my performance. Which isn’t great since now I’m the sole source of income. Really having trouble getting out of feeling like this.
