White House looks at tax rate to pay for jobs

Our president is deliberately increasing the tax rate to get funding for a 447 billion on a job package. At this time they are looking to limit this tax increase for those who have for money than others. I attack detection limit would only be towards people who make over $200,000 a year. The president money is, from either against oil & gas companies, as well as corporate jet owners. Do you really think that this is fair? I understand that there are some people who have a lot more money than others with their phones via fax a limit on the standard deduction then I think you should affect every body not just people who make a certain amount of money chewing us he wants to limit the number of charitable contributions for our other asked yesterday people can itemize patients aged girlfriend by anyone Mr. Lu found that $1.2 trillion it should have went towards the job package we shouldn't have to suffice our deductions or anything like that for. When the president makes the decisions it seems like he used people to pay for his ideas I have for example when we did the work to pay credit that is not written, frozen the White House or the federal government or anything like they came from higher tax rates for people who may a lot more money than he which is not safe When reading the article I see that the Republicans are having the same issues with this is that I am. I understand that you unflinchingly with that question then was that before suggesting on how suspended or how to use a part of the money that finances Social Security that would be awful what about older people Social Security that is on a global Cabernet will right now make it $630 a month so security hole can't live off $630, so it's a up the Social Security taxes that means they will be getting less then it will regularly give…...

Tax Evasion and Optimal Interest Rates. Switzerland: Study Center Gerzensee.

...Abstract Local governments in Bangladesh have several options at hand to finance their activities and pursue their fiscal policy. These options include the imposition of taxes and the generation of non-tax revenues through fees, levies, cost recovery and user charges, property and investment income, domestic and foreign borrowing, the sale of assets and domestic and foreign grants. Urban Local Governments (ULGs) in developing countries are in dire need of resources not only for investment to meet the increasing demand of growing urban population but also for maintenance of the existing services. But the resources of the municipal bodies are inadequate; infrastructures are in poor condition and services maintenance is neither enough nor would cover the new expansions. Inefficient governance of the municipal bodies is partly responsible for this. Holding tax plays an important role in own revenue of Pourashavas. About 35-45% revenue comes from holding tax. But in Bhairab Pourashava it contributes only 18-20%. Every year, its demands and collection are decreasing. Many factors are responsible for this. This study tries to find out the problems of holding tax collection and assessment. Pourashava requires to pay more attention to solve these problems. If the amount of holding tax is increased, this will help Pourashava gradually become self-financed. Introduction With the rapid urban growth all over the world, the demand for various services and facilities are increasing......

Lion in the White House

...Lion in the White House Chapter 1 As a child Theodore Roosevelt Jr. suffered from asthma and was regularly taken to other states where the air allowed him to breath with ease. His father was his care taker due to his mother being very sick with headaches and stomach complications making her unable to care for him. He was very intrigued with nature and animals. His family called him Teedie; he was born into an upper-class family. His father was Republican while his mother was Democratic but his paternal instincts were very prominent within him. Chapter 2 Roosevelt was the only one within the family to college degree. His health had improved tremendously and in return boosted his self-confidence. He took up boxing and became quite popular with the superior kids at Harvard. Roosevelt’s father died in 1878 due to peritonitis, but the family thought his death to be more of disappointment with himself for not reaching his goals in the Republican politics. His father’s death left him feeling shattered as if though he must feel his father’s shoes within the family. Theodore Roosevelt longed for a strong and independent wife, yet seemed to follow his father’s footsteps and married Alice Hathaway Lee, a woman much like his own mother. Chapter 3 Theodore Roosevelt decided to enter politics because he felt it best suited him due to his personality and determination. His mentor was President Lincoln, as he wrote his speeches and literatures they mocked......

White House Website

...The White House Website The white house website was launched originally in October 1994, during the first President Clinton’s administration. During President George W. Bush administration, the website had one color background with light color scheme; there were only three color dominating on the web page, white, gray and navy blue. At that time, the website began also to show signs of more structure, display more links and diffuse breaking news summaries and introduced more details to public. The white house website has been re-designed in September 22, 2011 after President Barack Obama has been elected. The new design is pretty similar to Obama’s campaign in web design, it emphasis imagery more than text. It is very cohesive and various.

White House & Immigration

...The White House’s Stance on Deportation of Illegal Immigrants In the New York Times article, “In the White House, debating how far to go in easing deportations,” authors Shear and Parker (2014) claim legislation is not moving as fast as it should on Capitol Hill. They state Republicans are stalling on the proposed changes to immigration laws causing the President to halt deportations (para. 7). The authors comment that if the President should take further action damage could occur with any future negotiations with Republicans. According to the writers, a number of people on Capitol Hill implied the Republicans could go as far as proposing impeachment of the President on the grounds of bending laws (para. 8). There are eleven million illegal immigrants in the United States and, recently, the President has exercised his power in changing laws causing a delay in deportations (para. 5) Shear and Parker (2014) states he has instructed the Department of Homeland Security to be more humane in their deportation process (para. 2). They report that one way the Department of Homeland Security is acting humane is by moving illegal families to the bottom of the list for deportation especially if a family member has the status of United States citizenship (para. 4). During a recent meeting, President Obama addressed a group of immigration activists stating he could not completely stop deportation of illegal immigrants without Congress’ approval (para. 1).

Effects of Merit Pay on Job Atisfaction

...Effects of Merit Pay on Job Satisfaction I should start out by mentioning the fact that no employee at the school corporation that I work for has received a raise in the last five years. Recently the school corporation has decided to give everyone a merit raise based on the previous year’s performance evaluation instead of employee tenure. I have heard many employees carrying on conversations with other staff members about how upset they are that the raise is based on past performance instead of how long they have been employed at the school corporation. This had led me to want to discover how merit pay affects a teacher’s job satisfaction. I am not a teacher however, I am the schools registrar and I will also receive my raise based on my previous year’s performance evaluation. It has always been my past experience that typically raises are based on performance no matter where I have worked. Using Evidence-based Human Resource as presented by Rousseau and Barends (2011) I will attempt to present my findings on how merit pay affects a teacher’s job satisfaction. Summary of Rousseau and Barends (2011) Article The article by Rousseau and Barends (2011), presents us with an overview of the decision-making process called Evidence-based Human Resource (EBHR). “EBHR is a decision-making process combining critical thinking with use of the best available scientific evidence and business information” (Rousseau & Barends, 2011). Rousseau and Barends (2011), maintain that......

Russian Hackers Attack the White House

...| Russian hackers attack the white house | | | Michae haven | 4/27/2015 | | On April 8, 2015 CNN did a report on a security breach involving the white house and the state department. This attack was done allegedly by Russian hackers in an attempt to gain states secrets. The hackers had gained access to the state departments computers via a phishing email attack. The attack was found out by suspicious activity that was happening on the white house computers. This attack allowed them full access to the state department’s computers and eventually they were able to convince someone to give them access to the white house’s non classified systems where sensitive information like the presidents non-published schedule and other information. The state department had been battling the hackers for months on trying to keep the hackers out but with no success at doing so. The systems were taken off line in an attempt to purge the mal-ware that was installed that gave the access to the systems and for new security measures to be put into place to help prevent future attacks on the systems. (Prokupecz, 2015) The attack was done by using a phishing scam. The way this works is first someone sends a message to a user, in this case it was by an email, trying to convince the user that they are someone from inside their work place, representing an event from the work place, or represents themselves as a trusted source. They then get the user to click on a web link that......

Does It Pay to Look Good in School?

...Does it Pay to Look Good in School? It the past decades, schools have become more about fashion rather than education. Public schools have debated whether students should wear school uniforms. There are many people who think that school uniforms should not be required to wear in school. In contrast, there are quite a few people who agree with wearing school uniforms. Students wearing school uniforms would be the best solution because school is the place for learning and students would be able to concentrate more and not feel pressured. Therefore, school uniforms are excellent because they ensure equality, provide security, and are cost effective. In today’s society, life can be very tough on students. They tend to forget about the real reason of why they are going to school and focus more on their appearance and popularity. If public schools were to bring in school uniforms, this would cut back on the “socio-economic” differences (Chen, 2015). Eliminating differences helps the students to be equal. Students would be able to go to school, and not have to worry about what another student would say about what they are wearing. It will help alleviate the pressure for each student. Also, school uniforms will cut down on the social conflicts like cliques or gangs. The school uniforms take away the style or colors that gangs or cliques would wear to stand out from one another. With the constant change of trends for clothing, the student will not feel pressured into having the......

What Pay for Performance Look Like

..."What pay for performance looks like: the case of Michael Eisner" By Stephen F. O’Byrne, Stern Stewart & Co. Journal of Applied Corporate Finance 5 (summer 1992), pp. 135-136 It’s easy to think of Disney CEO Michael Eisner as a classic case of executive pay run amok. His total compensation in his first six years on the job exceeded $250 million. In reality, he is a classic example of what “pay for performance” looks like. When Eisner was hired in late 1984, he took over a troubled company. Disney had just been through a bitter takeover battle, theme park attendance was declining, and return on equity had fallen below 8%. When he joined Disney, Eisner agreed to a six-year employment contract with three main compensation provisions: a base salary fixed at $750,000, an annual bonus equal to 2% of Disney’s net income in excess of 9% of stockholders’ equity, and a ten-year option on two million shares exercisable at Disney’s current market price of $14. While Eisner’s contract provided for guaranteed payments with a present value of only $3.9 million, its expected value was, of course, much greater. The expected value of his options, based on the Black-Scholes option pricing model, was $16 million. I also estimate that the expected value of his total contract, including bonus and pension rights, was $22 million. The Disney directors were presumably willing to enter into a contract worth ......

Tax Rates

...The have many different tax rates here in the United States in our Federal, State and local level governments. Tax rates are pretty much put on everything from sales of goods and service, property values to income. It is just a percentage rate at which a person or business is taxed. A particular issue that stands out here lately in regards to tax rates is the Federal corporate income tax rate. The United States tax code for corporate income tax rates has been in a heated debate over the years. The United States corporate income tax is currently at 35%. This makes the United States the 2nd highest corporate income tax rate in the world. The top spot belongs to Japan with 39%. In comparison too most industrial countries around the world such as Ireland, Denmark, China and Switzerland, the United States tax rate is triples their rate. The high tax rate is driving some American multi-international corporations to beg Congress for tax code reform to reduce the current tax rate. Some of these multinternational companies such as Transocean and Halliburton relocated their headquarters in other countries. But research from the GOA says this is slightly exaggerated. Some of these large multi-international companies due to tax breaks, loop hole and offshore bank accounts have pay about average of what other companies in industrial countries pay, some have paid nothing at all. Research shows that some companies have pay less, way less than companies around the world. In 2008 the......
