“Senate Passes Budget Blueprint Key To Trump Tax Effort”


HUFFINGTON POST

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump’s drive to overhaul the U.S. tax code cleared a critical hurdle on Thursday when the Senate approved a budget blueprint for the 2018 fiscal year that will pave the way for Republicans to pursue a tax-cut package without Democratic support.

By a 51-to-49 vote, the Republican-controlled Senate approved the budget measure, which would add up to $1.5 trillion to the federal deficit over the next decade in order to pay for proposed tax cuts.

“Now with this budget, we’re on a path to deliver much-needed relief to American individuals and families who have borne the burden of an unfair tax code,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said after it passed.” MORE

“Will childless Millennials turn America into Japan?”


CBS NEWS

Here’s a recipe for an economic armageddon: Take a rapidly aging society and a younger generation that’s not having kids. The result? An incredible shrinking economy that’s also burdened by huge costs to its Social Security and tax systems.

That’s the grim future for countries such as Japan, where the population is forecast to decline by one-third through 2060, thanks to a sharp drop in birthrates and an elderly population. In the U.S., a childbirth trend among Millennials is raising questions about whether some of the same economic pressures could be in store for America. MORE
