    Illegal immigrants comprise at MOST 3.7% of the population of America. You're really paranoid on this particular issue.......

    Well, I invite you to elaborate on your uneducated post. How could a population that comprises less than 4% of the population be having such an ENORMOUS impact on wages in this country, when most Americans wouldn't even WANT the jobs they are doing?!???

    EVERYONE WAS SUPPOSED TO SEE AN INCREASE IN TAKE HOME, right? That was unequivocal.


    Poll: Fewer voters say they're noticing paycheck increases from tax law

    A new Morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday found that fewer people were reporting seeing bigger paychecks due to the new tax law than those that did in a survey last month.

    The April survey found that 22 percent of registered voters reported seeing paycheck increases, while 55 percent said they hadn't noticed a bump and 23 percent didn't know or didn't have an opinion. When the news outlet asked about paycheck increases in early March, 27 percent said they noticed bigger paychecks, 50 percent said they didn't and 23 percent didn't know or didn't have an opinion.

    The April poll found that Republicans were more likely to say they noticed an increase in their paychecks than Democrats. Thirty-two percent of Republicans said they reported seeing larger paychecks, compared to 15 percent of Democrats and 21 percent of independents.
    The sample in the April poll included fewer people who said they were employed in the private sector or government and more retirees and unemployed people, which could impact the results because those who aren't receiving regular paychecks from an employer may not have any tax withholding.
    However, the percentages of private-sector and government employees who said they have noticed bigger paychecks decreased from the March poll to the April poll.

    The new tax law, which lowers individual tax rates, has been estimated to give most people a tax cut. In January, the IRS issued guidance updating tax withholding from people's paychecks to reflect the new law, and employers were directed to start following the guidance by Feb. 15.
    But polling has found that most people aren't reporting seeing an increase in their take-home pay. Republicans say those trends mean that they need to step up their messaging efforts.

    The polling comes as Republicans and Democrats are locked in a messaging battle over the tax law. Republicans are hoping that by touting the tax law, they will be able to keep control of the House and Senate after the midterm elections. But Democrats are arguing that the law mostly benefits wealthy individuals and businesses and have discussed rolling back parts of the law if they do well in the midterms...

    For my own part, I have, in fact, seen an increase. Specifically, my take-home pay is up about 5.3% with the tax cut, which is noticeable -- more than a typical year's raise, for example. However, I'm unusual, in that I've got a pretty big income (about $192k per year, not even counting bonuses, and other forms of income, much less my wife's income). Most Americans are seeing a 1.6% increase or less, which is so small that it barely even shows up amidst the noise of changes in pre-tax pay (especially for those who work inconsistent hours, and so have a lot of variation from week to week).

    The cynical Republican calculation here was that typical taxpayers were supposed to notice those table scraps coming to them now, without thinking of the longer-term tax hit the law hits them with, much less the inevitable slashing of spending on programs they rely on. It's not good news for the Republicans if people aren't noticing the table scraps now, because they may still wind up noticing all the other crap that cuts the other way.

    If you can get into USAA, I recommend it. They don't seem to be as eager to screw customers as most insurance and financial companies.

    We know the American worker was not the intended target of this massive tax cut.
