Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – 


Cheers, Jeers and Miller Time Beers – the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

MHProNews has led the way in the industry in reporting on the progress during the year that has finally led to the passage of the POTUS Trump/GOP Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. For example, the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) only sounded off on the NADA raised issue, days after MHProNews put it in front of the industry, thanks to a news tip from a retailer.

FYI, “the Beers,” means it’s “Miller time” on this issue; the work on this bill is done.  Now legislative attention shifts to avoiding a so-called federal shutdown.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel has signaled that there will be another short-term continuing resolution (CR), which Democratic leaders have already agreed to.

McConnel also indicated in a Fox News interview that the planned CR will not include the so-called Dreamers or “DACA fix.”  Time will soon tell.

That DACA plan, which will be of keen interest to thousands of industry professionals, will move into the first quarter of 2017.

Democrats and Taxes – What Happened?

To listen to Democratic leaders, this newly minted bill is going to raise taxes, not lower them, on the middle class. They also say that the rich will get the biggest benefits from the legislation.

How that seemingly contradictory set of Democratic claims works in practice, is not easy to explain.

Just as hard to explain is how Democrats in the 1980s supported the Reagan tax cuts and reforms, which produced jobs and more net revenues to the federal government.  So too did tax reforms passed by Democratic President John F. Kennedy, a fact that the Daily Business News has reminded readers of for some years.

The videos on this page come from the White House press office/YouTube page, and from left-of-center, CNBC. They provide additional insights, cheers, and reactions to those jeers.
