It December 31 comes and goes we -- -- the Clinton -- Well first of all it's gonna be at the Twilight Zone for a lot of people who are in the middle class because for.
It's almost like you're gonna have a number of people who.
We're trying to actually get into the upper income levels and then all the -- rod sterling is gonna come along he's gonna say yeah I guess what you are rich.

That is going to hit -- as as well -- people in the middle class who never thought they are gong to.
Get hit they're going to fight -- they are wealthy.
So -- just a couple of things that they're going to hit you know what people in this country.
Charles let me go through a real -- -- -- you respond -- each and every one of them if I -- the first one is going to be of course the the doc fix.

The AMT is my favorite thing to talk about because it's also known as the wealth tax.
It was -- -- 43 years ago because 106.
Thing that -- -- evil greedy.
People were not paying their quote on quote fair share.
This time around if it's not patched up it could impact 33.
People starting at 74000 why.
It was never indexed for inflation it was one of these taxes put the place for punitive measures very much like legislation that we see all the time now.
Not to help the economy but -- somehow punish those people who have seen that does have the upper hand on all of us as far as everything else is concerned.
While unemployment let's talk about that anyone out there watching this show.
Receiving extended unemployment benefits -- those due by January 6 of the economy.
It all -- January 1 -- the snowball starts the role in the -- their roles that that's a role to become the concentric circle and -- becomes a giant boulder Beckett take five to 6% out of our GDP by the end of the year.

It was very interesting observation there -- people.
This -- estate taxes after they pay taxes their entire lives are gonna go up to 55%.
That's how -- the government will take.
After that you paid all of your taxes.
And the government is gonna get more than half of what you have left that includes the golden UT.
And maybe you know a little spare change in your pocket.
Pretty sad and an -- that is anticipatory -- anything else.
Yeah otherwise known as the death tax which I preferred to to call it it keeping my shot the the estate tax I'm also -- it is.
It would it actually collapsed in 2010 and there were jokes essentially going around disabled this is tied to people -- you pull the plug on on the relative.
But remember -- came back in 2011 and it ended up coming back at 35% but if you go to the clip it -- that the 55%.
Unbelievable guys good to see a great information we'll continue to follow appreciate it.
