CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, Cleveland, Ohio- Congress passed the Republican initiated tax bill on Wednesday, President Trump's signature legislation and the most comprehensive overhaul of the U.S. tax system in more than 30 years.

 

The bill, dubbed the Tax Custs and Jobs Act, passed the House a second time on Wednesday, 224-201.

 

Not one congressional Democrat voted in favor of the measure that polls say has opposition from 55 percent of voters.

 

Ohio 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia L Fudge, a Warrensville Heights Democrat whose largely Black congressional district includes the city of Cleveland, said the bill raises taxes on middle and low income people and lowers taxes for the rich.

 

"The Republican tax bill widens the income inequality gap and makes it more difficult for working Americans to realize the American dream,"  said Fudge, one of two Black in congress from Ohio.

 

The president joined Republican lawmakers on Capital Hill on Wednesday to  celebrate the victory, the president's first major victory since he took office in January.

 

Trump thanked House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the press conference and said it was fun to win.

 

He called the passage of the bill a Christmas gift for Americans.

 

"It's the largest tax cut in the history of our country," said Trump, a Republican

 

The bill, which keeps several personal income tax bracketsbut reduces the rate at the highest level from 37 percent to 40 percent, practically doubles standard  deductions for individuals, eliminates the health care mandate in Obamacare, reduces the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, and gives  big business a break

 

In short, say Democrats, it helps the rich and disenfranchises the middle class and working poor.

 

President Trump, however,  framed it as massive tax cuts for all of America.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, WASHINGTON D.C. – Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) (pictured), whose largely Black 11th congressional district includes Cleveland, was upset about the House vote today regarding the passage of the Republican tax bill, which would require approval by the Senate to become law, President Trump making it clear that he will not veto the proposed legislation.

 

“Today, House Republicans voted to raise taxes on low and middle income families and to explode the deficit, all to give tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations," said Fudge. "The Republican tax bill will widen the income inequality gap and make it more difficult for working Americans to realize the

American dream."


She urged the U.S. Senate to reject the measure.


“I urge my senate colleagues to grow a conscience and reject this partisan bill on behalf of the millions of hardworking American families across the country. " said Fudge, one of two Blacks in congress from Ohio. "We must get back to work on bipartisan solutions, not ramming through partisan bills that the majority of Americans oppose.”


The congresswoman continued.

 

“The Republican tax bill means working families will pay more in taxes than corporations." Fudge said."  The bill will increase health insurance premiums and leave 13 million Americans uninsured."


The federal lawmaker said that "with medicare, medicaid, and social security next on the chopping block, this tax bill will disproportionately hurt our nation’s seniors, people with disabilities, veterans and the poor while benefiting the wealthy."


And she said she is not fooled by the Republican shenanigans that she says hurt the nation's most vulnerable.

 

“Despite what Republicans claim, trickle-down economics doesn’t work," said Fudge. "History has proven that tax cuts for the wealthy add to our nation’s deficit, they do not decrease the debt or create jobs."

 

Republicans control both chambers of congress and the White House.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio- Former Cleveland NAACP president Michael Nelson Sr. (pictured), who gave up the post last year to run for a seat on the 13-member largely Black Cleveland Municipal Court, will be sworn in on Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017 at 4:30 pm in chambers of Cleveland City Council on Lakeside Avenue in downtown Cleveland.


A reception will follow.


For more information call (216) 505-0204 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


Nelson, 68 and a Cleveland criminal defense attorney, won in the November general election over Judge Michael Sliwinski, who was appointed by Gov John Kasich to an unexpired term to fill the vacancy left by the death of former Cleveland judge Ed Wade.


Though the judicial race at issue was non-partisan, Nelson, who is Black, is a Democrat, and Slinwinski, who is White, is a Republican.


Cleveland has a population of roughly 385,000 people and is a largely Black major American city.


Nelson is newly remarried, having remarried his ex-wife, the mother of his grown children, earlier this month.


His term is for six years as are all of the terms on the municipal bench of Cleveland and he cannot seek reelection because he will be over 70, the age limit for Ohio judges to serve, unless they are full filling a term that expires after they reach 70-years of age.

African American voters made Doug Jones a U.S. senator in Alabama

E-mail Print PDF

Ahead of Alabama’s special Senate election, there was a clear narrative about the state’s black voters: They weren’t mobilizing.

 

Six of 10 black voters stopped by a New York Times reporter in a shopping center last week didn’t know an election was even going on, a result the reporter took to mean overall interest was low. The Washington Post determined that black voters weren’t “energized.” HuffPost concluded that black voters weren’t “inspired.”

 

If Democratic candidate Doug Jones lost to GOP candidate Roy Moore, weakened as he was by a sea of allegations of sexual assault and harassment, then some of the blame seemed likely to be placed on black turnout. CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL STORY AT THEATLANTIC.COM
