"The next thing. I want to talk about which i'm happy that we didn't spend money on is nursery decor and a crib or like the baby furniture for the nursery. So i obviously.

I'll share a picture of his nursery on instagram. actually so we ended up getting a set of a tall dresser and then a lower dresser and then his crib from kia. And i think all three of those pieces of furniture came up to like five hundred or six hundred dollars whereas cribs that i were i was looking at that. Were really nice. And in the nice baby stores were like just. The crib itself was like six hundred or over so that crib was amazing. It had drawers on the bottom and we used that up until we switched him to a bed. And it's still like in mint condition. I am happy that we did not spend a lot of money on the crib knocking ally and to be honest when we travel to my husband's parents house in vancouver or to my parents property to my sister's house we just bought one of the.

Q&A: How Can I Launch a Set of Unique Enamel Pins?

"Is the most effective way of launching by enamel brain pins wholesale and getting them into the right hands at museum and hospital gift shops nationally. The pens are high. Quality enamel designed by me manufactured. In china they are loved by neuroscientists neurologists psychologists and others. Who work with the brain or people who have brain injuries or illnesses. I thought about emailing links and sending samples in fun and different packaging. Or i'm also wondering if i should go the more traditional route of the big expensive gift show. Thanks so much for all you do to help all of us out here. it's invaluable. thank you so much laura. you're awesome congratulations on going fulltime. I think you said you're doing that this month or soon. At least i'll listeners. I want to encourage you to check out laura's site one because we want to support her but also because it's a really good example here. Laura bundesbahn dot com. Bunsen be indy. Espn dot com and my first comment here before we talk about the new line of products. My first comment is i really respect her pricing. Like laura's work is not cheap. She's doing some really beautiful art. A lot of it has mixed media and it sells for a good amount of money. Like i'm looking at these pieces on the site. And i'm seeing eight hundred dollars nine hundred and fifty dollars thirty six hundred dollars. Three thousand six hundred fifteen hundred dollars etc so some really beautiful art and she's not afraid to sell it for a good price so good for her. She probably wouldn't be able to go full time. She was selling this work for fifty to one hundred dollars each also. This kind of pricing allows for some investing in marketing and some experiments especially when it comes to launching a new product line like launching these new enamel pins and so my that was my first thought about i respect the pricing. My second thought. As i heard the question was have you tried exhibiting and then at the end she mentioned the big expensive gift show you know. I think it's a risk. Nothing is guaranteed but might you regret it if you didn't try and if it were me in this situation i think i would which would tell me. Oh i should definitely try it. I think this is the time in which you invest it in which you are willing to do. Some more extensive experiments reaching out to her target market and sending physical samples. So i think she mentioned something about that. Kind of outreach. I would send physical samples of the pins not just a link or i might email and ask if i could send a physical sample just so a bit. More of a relationship has been established since it's ultimately a physical product. She wants to sell. And i assume it will be a lot lower price than the handcrafted one of a kind art that she also sells probably gonna help to see it in

Am I Spending Too Much on Tools and Software?

"So craig writes in and asks. Hey am i spending too much. On software and subscription tools. I spend over a grand every single year on these tools. And i wanna. I say that you know eight thousand dollars. Sounds a lot when i just say eight thousand dollars but it's all relative really. It depends on how much you're earning depends on how many customers you have been on. The you know the nature of your business and how uses these tools. You're spending a grand a year but with those tools you're earning a hundred grand then. It's not a bad thing because those are basically you're running costs to run a business. You might have cost involved but most people that spend money on online business. Spend most of their money on tools and hosting and things like that again. I want to stress the relativity of this whole you know. Eight thousand dollars does sound like a lot. But our software business between hosting and development sas products and deployment tools and email marketing. We spent well over a hundred thousand dollars a month on tools and subscription services. But again it's all of our costs because we run a software company. I i want to talk about what tools really are worth spending money on and we'll talk about how to maximize tool so before you start cutting out. Let's see some of these tools. Are things that you actually should invest in number one you of say hosting a lot of people go really cheap their website hosting whether they're on a shared server or they're on some sort of dinky hosting plan spending a bit more on your website hosting and having a dedicated server is going to speed up things. It's gonna love the Website the faster have a better experience for your customers. It's the home. It's the home of your business and you need to make sure you're spending good money on a good foundation. A of people forget this. Skip this and spend really like less than ten dollars a month. That's okay when you're just getting started to have a proof of concept once you have customers rolling through the door you need to improve and upgrade your experience so spending money on that is not so bad. Most people spend like ten dollars on their website hosting because we really value experience for customers for our websites.

Unpacking the American Rescue Plan

"The motion is adopted. Lowering gambino political correspondent for guardian. Usc bobby sleeping covering the one point nine trillion dollars bit relief package that passed through congress. Last week is on the way. It's called the american rescue plan. How big is it. Thur americans the plan itself is huge in scale and scope. it's one point nine trillion dollars. Which even. I sort of have to take a moment realize how massive this bill is. It's being billed as one of the biggest pieces of legislation. Congress passed in possibly generation. Many of the big measures are temporary. They're set to last for a year or just for the next few months but there are pushes already by democrats to make some of these provisions permanent that would mean pretty significant changes in the american social safety net. Can you give me some examples of ice measures. The moose well known piece of this bill is the fourteen hundred dollar checks to individuals. So if you're someone who makes below seventy five thousand dollars a year or you're a couple who makes less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year you will receive these fourteen hundred dollar checks that will come in addition to the other provisions which provide housing assistance assistance for food assistance for healthcare. Then there's this other big precision. It's called the child tax credit it's existed for a while now but this bill dramatically expands the credit and it also expanded eligibility for it so that more. Low income families qualify. What's novel is at. Its affectively of form of guaranteed income. The payments will be made monthly to these families rather than qualifying only for the credit during tax season. And that's a huge change both financially and philosophically in the way americans dole-outs welfare in this country. And so this is a provision that some policy experts have forecast would cut child poverty in half in america especially for black families and latino families. So this could have a huge huge impact on low income americans who've been especially hurt by the job losses. This is the one piece that democrats believe once it's been enacted through this legislation that they will have some success making permanent and indeed if they do it would completely restructure how we look at child welfare this country and as you said the title bell is in the trillions and when we start talking in trillions he basically leaves me but i found it something like a tenth of gdp so as you say huge how significant is for biden. And for setting out. Biden's agenda anyway. You look at it. It's a big political victory for joe biden. He came in saying he was going to do this. Part of his victory is certainly attributable to donald trump's mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and this was his promise not to mention a few months later when the senate was still in the balance to georgia senate candidates both democrats promised georgia voters that they would be sending them two thousand dollar checks if they win their races in georgia and democrats control the senate so this is seen as making good on that. Promise the the difference. The two thousand dollar checks are now fourteen hundred dollars but the democrats make the case that they said six hundred dollar checks to americans in december and so this brings up the total to two thousand. Yeah politicians always find ways to add up the numbers. Now as you said and the democrats have a slim majority in the house and a wafer thin majority in the senate because of those georgia senators a majority of one with comma harris. How difficult was this to pass. This was a big political. Lift for joe biden. And what's interesting is that it was so difficult given how popular the legislation was with the american people. Cbs news poll. Seventy five percent of americans say they support the measure including almost half of republicans in most well-known provisions of the bill pulled even higher than the entire bill itself and even then joe biden wasn't able to bring along any republicans you know. He came into office. One of his big promises was that he would be able to work across the aisle and bridge the gaps. They called this the most progressive piece of legislation in history. That absolutely did not happen for those who watching progressive means socialism. And then you have with his razor thin margins. You have a lot of factions within the democratic party. That were jostling for control. And he really had to contend with some objections from moderate democrats particularly in the senate where one senator can blow up the entire negotiation. He was able to do this this time. But i think this sets up a lot of questions about what comes

Inside Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Bill

"Start right there with a pass of that. Covid stimulus bill in the senate on saturday night. I do need to preface this by saying it does have to pass the house again because there were some changes made by the senate so it's not passed into law just yet but we'll go for what this bill will include when it goes through the house and i'm going to try my best to sound like i'm not rattling off just a bunch of dollar amounts but there's a danger. It might sound like that but just bear with me. There might be something in there that would be useful for you. Your family someone. So for helping the unemployed it extends that three hundred dollars a week plus the state unemployment end it makes the first ten thousand two hundred dollars of that non taxable for households making less than a hundred and fifty thousand dollars it also fully funds cobra. Health insurance premiums so that employees who have been laid off can remain on their employer plan for free. There's also going to be another round of checks fourteen hundred dollars for a single taxpayer. Twenty eight hundred couples indy. Get fourteen hundred dollars per dependent now the starts to taper off at seventy five thousand for individuals or one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for couples ended completely gets phased out at eighty thousand dollars for a single tax payer and one hundred and sixty thousand dollars for a couple it gives state and local governments three hundred fifty billion dollars to cover expenses related to covid through twenty twenty four gives schools one hundred and thirty billion for k. Through twelve in forty billion dollars for colleges and that's to help them reopen safely so parents can get back to work for businesses. they'll be twenty five billion dollars going to restaurants and bars. This max out at ten million dollars per company in five million dollars per location additionally there will be seven point two five billion for the paycheck protection program once again forty. Six billion dollars will be going to state local and federal governments to help with testing and contact tracing as well as fourteen billion dollars to help speed up. The vaccine distribution for healthcare there will be financial assistance for aca affordable care act premiums and this is just looking to get the number of people covered by insurance to increase into further incentivize. The south to expand medicaid since they're sort of the holdouts town there. The republicans are blocking that there are also increases in tax breaks to parents who have kids up to three thousand dollars per kid if their age six to seventeen and thirty six hundred dollars per kid if they're under six years old and that spread out over the twelve months according to analysis this plus the fourteen hundred dollar check would cut the number of kids in poverty by more than half. In addition there's changes to the earned income tax credit for this year in extends to people without children. And if you're looking for how much that would be for low to moderate income folks. It'll be somewhere between five hundred and forty three dollars in one thousand five hundred and two dollars. Lastly in the rental and homeowner category it gives thirty billion dollars to help low income and unemployed folks afford rent and utilities and at the state level states and tribes get ten billion dollars per homeowners. So all in all. I think thing that really struck me. Was this tweet that i saw saying that. Isn't it kind of crazy. That biden asked for a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal and he got a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal like i think that makes biden a pretty good politician. One of the main criticisms of obama was at he started out by compromising with republicans and gave them the compromise offer in the first place instead of starting out high. You can't say that for biden so far in this could be a sign of good things to come but like. I said they're hoping that this gets signed into law by the end of the week after the house passes it sometime this week.

A Look Inside The COVID-19 relief bill Passed By Senate

"The senate passed a one point nine trillion dollar covid nineteen relief. Bill here's what senate by elena abramson the senate on saturday afternoon narrowly passed a one point nine trillion dollar cove nineteen relief package a key milestone for president joe biden to ink his first legislative priority into law the avalanche of federal dollars which clock in at approximately nine percent of the country's gross domestic product includes fourteen hundred dollar checks for middle and lower income. Americans extend unemployment insurance through much of the summer and provides seventy billion dollars to increase vaccine distribution and coronavirus testing. The bill was passed entirely along party. Lines with all senate. Democrats supporting it and all republicans opposing. This nation has suffered too much for much. Too long biden said in remarks from the white house on saturday. Everything in this package is designed to relieve the suffering and to meet the most urgent needs of the nation and put us in a better position to prevail starting with beating this virus and vaccinating the country. The house which already passed version of the bill on february. twenty seventh is slated to vote on the amended. Text on tuesday before sending it to biden's desk so he can sign it into law. Here is a look at six major components of the bill direct payments for millions of americans under the senate plan individuals making up to seventy five thousand dollars in couples. Making up to one hundred. Fifty thousand dollars per year are eligible to receive a fourteen hundred dollar check individuals. Earning between seventy five thousand and eighty thousand dollars and couples. Earning between one hundred fifty thousand dollars. One hundred sixty thousand dollars will receive some of that money but not the full amount. The eligibility thresholds are a change from the house's initial version which kept the threshold at one hundred thousand dollars for individuals and two hundred thousand dollars for couples senate. Democrats lowered the eligibility for the stimulus checks to get all democrats onboard after resistance from some moderates in their party. The decision means that an estimated seventeen million americans who received a check under former president. Donald trump won't get one under biden. According to a study from a nonpartisan institute on taxation and economic policy biden said on saturday that the government will begin sending the checks to eligible americans. This month extended unemployment insurance current federal unemployment benefits. Which a lot an additional three hundred dollars per week on top of state benefits are set to expire on march fourteenth. The senate bill extends the program through september sixth at three hundred dollars per week for households. Earning under one hundred fifty thousand dollars. The first ten thousand two hundred dollars of the unemployment benefits are non taxable to prevent surprise billing at the end of the year. These were also changes from the house version of the bill which provided four hundred dollars per week through all twenty ninth. The reduction in unemployment insurance in the senate version was implemented to ensure moderate senator. Joe manchin a democrat from west. Virginia would not break with his party. According to a democratic aide expanded tax credits for families. The bill raises the child tax credit for most families in the coming year by one thousand dollars to three thousand dollars per child. It's even more for families with young children. Many can receive credit of three thousand six hundred dollars for each child under age six. All of these credits are fully refundable and some researchers say these measures could potentially help cut child poverty and half funding for state and local governments and public schools. The bill delivers a three hundred fifty billion dollar cash infusion to state and local governments and one hundred thirty billion dollars to elementary middle and high schools to help them reopen safely. Local budgets have faced steep declines in revenue as businesses remain shuttered during the pandemic last september. The brookings institute estimated that state and local revenues would decline by one hundred fifty five billion dollars in twenty twenty one hundred sixty seven billion dollars in twenty twenty one and one hundred forty five billion dollars in twenty twenty two. The money for schools is designed to help them improve their ventilation systems. Hire more janitors and reduced class sizes to conform with social distancing protocols. Democrats argued that this money was necessary to save public sector jobs and enable teachers and students to return to classrooms without risking their health. Republicans said that the funding already allocated through. Last year's relief bills was sufficient and that sending more money the state and local governments was superfluous relief for restaurants. The bill includes traditional fifty billion dollars in assistance for small businesses including more than seven billion dollars for the troubled payment protection program and a break from previous relief packages. This bill provides twenty eight point. Six billion dollars in grant relief specifically for restaurants which have been particularly decimated by the pandemic

The Biden Relief Bill: Who Gets What

"Okay. Who is getting. What in the biden. Bill perio first up is what most adults in. The country are going to get a one time payment of up to fourteen hundred dollars. This is the single biggest part of the bill. And here's where the bill stands. Now if you made less than seventy five thousand dollars either last year or the year before you will get the full amount fourteen hundred bucks beyond that if you made between five thousand and eighty thousand dollars you get a smaller amount and if you made more than eighty thousand dollars you will not get one of these checks for married couples who file their taxes together. The cutoff for getting a check is a combined. Income of one hundred and sixty thousand dollars in these checks are both the biggest and the most universal part of the bill. The exact amount of money that your household will get does depend on a few things in addition to your income. Like whether you have kids or other dependents but even so roughly eighty to ninety percent of all households in the us are gonna get checks for some amount of money and the hope is that people will spend that money to help boost the economy so next step people who are getting money in the stimulus bill. The unemployed four hundred dollars per week on top of what they would normally get from their state in unemployment benefits when there isn't a pandemic and that extra four hundred dollars. A week will last until nearly the end of august and there's a lot of people still claiming unemployment benefits each week almost nine times as many people as a year ago right before the pandemic started. That's more than nineteen million people claiming those benefits right now and a big part of the reason why there are so many is the government has expanded the range of people who can qualify for these benefits during the pandemic and the reason unemployment benefits matter for the overall economy. Is that the allow people to continue spending money while they are between jobs paying their rent buying groceries buying school supplies for their kids yet without the extra four hundred dollars. Unemployment benefits would only replace less than half of a workers lost income on average but with the extra four hundred dollars from the stimulus bill. These benefits will be replacing more than eighty five percent of the lost income for the average unemployed worker up state and local governments. What they're going to get from the bill so tax revenues for a lot of state and local governments have just deride pandemic and some of them have been forced to cut back on services that they typically provide like garbage collection law enforcement mental health and addiction treatment services and a bunch of others state and local governments have also had to lay off one point three million workers especially a lot of workers in public schools teachers administrators janitors. It's one of the hardest hit sectors of the labor market so this bill provides three hundred and fifty billion dollars for state and local governments. And actually that might end up more money than state and local governments lost during the pandemic three hundred and fifty billion dollars is above the range of estimates for how much money state and local governments will have lost through next year. But it's also true that some states and local governments are in worse shape than others and so one of the big debates in the senate is over just how to allocate this money between different states and cities. And we're gonna pass here for a second because if we stop right here just right now out of the cost of those three things that we have discussed the checks that go out to almost everybody. Stimulus checks the bigger unemployment insurance benefits and the money that goes to state and local governments. That is the biggest part of the bill. Roughly half of it around a trillion dollars is going to go to those three things combined yet and there's all kinds of interesting and important stuff and the rest of the bill to so. Here's a few more that we definitely think are worth mentioning. Starting with what parents are gonna get. Yes so parents are going to get an extra fourteen hundred dollars for each of their children and this includes adult children who parents list as their dependence. Yeah so if you are. A family of four people say to spouses and two kids. The total amount. You're gonna get in those one time. Checks is up to fifty six hundred dollars. But that's not all. The bill also increases the size of the child tax credit for one year. So parents will now be able to offset their tax bills by thirty six hundred dollars for each kid under the age of six the really young ones and by three thousand dollars for other kids who are not yet adults bottom line take that same family of four and let's say both parents make less than seventy five thousand dollars each year and let's say their two kids are very young. They're toddlers that family could get a total of nearly thirteen thousand dollars in checks and tax credits because of this bill. Okay and now. Let's look at what schools are going to get kindergarten to twelfth grade. Schools are gonna get roughly one hundred and thirty billion dollars but maybe what's most interesting is what that money is intended for. Yes so this money is not for textbooks. It is for things that make it easier for schools to reopen and operate during the pandemic. So things like improving ventilation buying more personal protective equipment and even changing the shape of a classroom so that social distancing between students is easier next up. The bill includes tens of billions of dollars for loans and grants to businesses and the industry. That's going to get the single biggest amount in grants. So that's money that does not have to be paid back is bars and restaurants yup bars and restaurants. They can prove they lost money. Last year will be eligible for up to ten million dollars each in grants and the bill has set aside a total of twenty five billion dollars for eateries and watering holes and restaurants. And though that is the most any industry is getting in this bill. Some perspective is important here last year. Bars and restaurants lost about a hundred and forty five billion dollars sales from the year before. It's a twenty percent decline and there are still nearly two and a half million fewer jobs in bars and restaurants than before the pandemic and this year knock on wood will not be as bad because people are getting vaccinated. Covid cases are coming down and more of the country is reopening still. That is a huge hole to dig out of

"Nearly six hundred dollars per child per month. That's seven dollars per year. I assume such welfare state touch credits. Also this in the US. Yes, they would. Yeah. So why would a legal monster or an illegal alien stop finally angle tax returns to give these the street government money? So I think the socialist Democrats fear that the citizenship question will reduce the number alternately that information will contribute to reducing the number of congressional seats and reduce the federal funding for expanding the welfare state, especially in California. Absolutely right on Robert. Yes. Yeah. That's right. And look this reduction in the seats and the biggest thing for social Democrats is that the reduction of their power in the federal level will ultimately like cripple possibly prevent their route. And I think it's a perverse nightmare. But their dream for some kind of a Orwell communist role in America. Or even like, I don't know these crazy people are tennis probably believe in some brave new world try to global government. So. Yeah. Reducing re like the ship question is. Well, I think it's right through the funding. I'm not saying that there aren't some on the left that are viewing that they're a Nevada exists out there where the government the socialist communist government controls everything. Obviously there are. I mean, you know, marks wrote the book on the utopia the so he believed in it. So there are people that believe in it is that what's going on in America right now. No, it's the free life party and the economic as we call it the free life, everything is free. And it's economic philosophy of Guinea, we've added one capitalism socialism, gimme ISM Americans are into Guinea's them. They're not into socialism Guinea, free stuff. I don't wanna worry about work comes as I as I demonstrated, you know, with a jokingly, but really to make a serious point before the bottom of the hour that you get to the point where okay, the government is controlling, you know, the the capital they're controlling all of that that wealth, and then all the sudden they moved to controlling you know, as. As you move to communism. The means of production await a minute. What do you mean by that? Well, that means you're going to have to go to work. But don't worry. We'll give you everything you need. We'll I'm not going to work because as part of being the means of production labor being part of the means. And it means that eventually the socialist government controls that which means they control you. Yes. And and of course, that's where they would. They would draw the line. That's why we believe in that. It is gimme as it is not socialism. It is not that. They don't want to get to toward communism. They want this fantasy. They wanna believe in this fantasy or they're rushing the big government Bank. It's one of the two it's it is they're both fantasy by the way to believe that everybody can get everything that they're wanting out of that big government Bank. But that's exactly what they want. They want the free stuff. They want the more handouts and benefits from the government. And they don't. Don't want to do the work. They don't want to earn. That's peeling to a larger number of people every single day. Look, I believe it's gimme ISM. And and in gimme ISM contains an element of victimhood. Yes. That that. I'm I'm a victim in your spot because that billionaire exists and and even again, I think we we had a caller yesterday. When we were talking about college loans being forgiven free college who said, well, look you have to understand that. There are people that have hundreds of thousands of dollars in college debts, and they've families and children that they have to support. And we said, well, then they had the debt before they got married and had children. Right. Well, well, yes. Well, then they shouldn't have gotten married and had children, right? And wait a minute. What what do you mean? You you can't you can't stop that. That's that's what happens. And so now, we're to the point as we stated that. Now, it just happens now has given you as a person in this country the ability to claim victimhood because you can't control what just happens right that everything in your life. You're not in control of your urges. You're wanting to do what you want to do right now without any regard to the consequences is. Now, considered part of the equation that gets you to the equalization of that too victimhood. That's how sophisticated it's gotten. So it's a combination of gimme ISM and victimhood now based on well things happen. Right. And if things happen in my life is sort of happen. You can't stop them. Therefore you over there. You gotta pay for me. It's not. So we're not dealing with the concept of socialism. No, it's not the it's not that. These people have red marks and said, wow. Because remember the poll that was taken the talked about the means of production. The poll the majority the majority of Americans are plurality of Americans thought that was in the United States constitution right from last week. Yeah. Right. So they have no idea have. No, they have. No, it's it's it's what we're seeing is the basic. Urge of men were of mankind. We're seeing the emotions of greed the emotions of jealousy. There's nothing new here. This isn't the concept were. Everybody has red marks. And they truly have become socialists. All they haven't. They don't wanna know, you know, they don't want. They don't wanna state controls them. No. They don't truly want to live in a socialist state. They just want the free stuff and all the freedoms that they still have today, and they don't even want to think about where the money comes from. And you don't have to when your victim. It just comes from those people that have that are evil. Well, you know, it's funny is what did they introduce here recently? You know, the idea they keep talking about this idea that robots can do everything for you. You'll have. Your remember? It was real watching take all the jobs, and then when they realized they were failing that because no one really cares about a job. A wait a minute. No. The the robots can do your work for you. And you know, Cassie of Cortez. It said we can tax the robots. Yes, we can tax the robots somebody owns the robots. The robots will be working doing the work for you. See if we tax the robots then you're onto the next idea, which is have the robots to everything all of the work, and you get to stay home and get the free stuff based on the wealth created by the robots. Say. That's the way it's gonna work. It's all going to start robots aren't going to be taxed people. It's all going to start with an Austrian robot back. Live.

"Three six hundred dollars year to parents, depending on how their kid is as review universal child allowance and then the last categories Booker in comma Harris, both have bills to give tax credits to people who were renters to subsidize their rent's, especially in high cost cities. And so we looked at these five and saw how much each of them would reduce poverty poverty party for kids. So that we can judge these proposals. Not just how much they cost. But are they doing the important thing that we expect anti-poverty programs? Let you find. I mean, can you lay the land of like what the space what are these plans going to do if they were at acted? What's a range of your short? So all of them could poverty by millions of people in. So it's a question of how many millions of people you're cutting come harasses yet you see plan. It's called the lift act on an technically creates a different very TC like credit that is not called the IDC, which is sort of confusing. But it does the most because it's by far the most expensive that it cuts poverty by about three percentage points or nine point six million people so just to pin that right? I mean, there's like this two different reasons. A program could be very effective as you're cutting right? Like one is like a lot of bang for the buck, and the other is a lot of bucks. Right. Exactly. So so lift act is just like the biggest it's just the biggest it's it's about two point five trillion dollars over ten years the scale or or somewhat bigger than than the Trump tax cuts, a very very big. Graham, but also puts a lot of money in they ends of poor people. What I found most interesting is that if you assume they all cost the same. If you're only interested in bang for the buck easily the most effective at the rent bills that booker's Bill and Harris's Bill that give money to renters reduce poverty by more than the other ones. If you assume they all cost the same which says some interesting things about who's in poverty. It tells us that that rental costs and housing costs are really big driver of need for people in poverty, right now, which helps explain why this is becomes a big focus area for a lot of twenty twenty candidates and something they reject on that real quick that that I think is interesting about those bills is you can imagine somebody's sitting back and saying, well, why should we be subsidizing people to rent, you know, why should we only give rectors help? But of course, we have a massive program of the mortgage interest tax deduction, which is a subsidy people buy homes, and so the idea that you would because that has been hard to actually get rid of. I mean, we have different times like tweaked it a bit. But. Because it has been very hard to get rid of because it is just Jake Ganic in terms of its annual. 'cause I did that we might create a more targeted program to help renters who are more in need and are no less as far as I can tell morally worthy of help than homeowners. It seems like an interesting way to go about that so much of the conversation about the inefficiencies and inequities in our housing, finance or about can we get rid of the mortgage interest tax deduction. And why no it is a a. An expensive way to do it that you just instead parrot with very big render subsidy that might actually be the way to go. Yeah. I mean, I think the question from a housing policy perspective about these things is that it it doesn't give you a bigger subsidy based on how poor you are. It gives you a bigger subsidy based on how poor you are relative to the local cost of housing, right? So a person living in New York is going to get a bigger voucher than a somewhat poorer person who's living in Arkansas, and it's not it's not a coincidence that that framework would appeal to a Senator from California and a Senator from New Jersey, which are some of the highest cost states that are out there. But you know, if I was a Representative from a low cost state, I mean particular a low cost low income state, right? Like Arizona like Kentucky at five Joe mansion in West Virginia..

"Now the challenge with the calculation. Is pretty obvious. It includes all other taxable income. So in other words, if a couple said twenty six thousand six hundred dollars of IRA withdrawals, and no other income sources and also add seventy five thousand of capital gains. The standard deduction would offset the IRA withdrawal. From being taxable. Remember, you get a standard deduction of I think this year, it's twenty four four. But if we're using last year's numbers. A married. Couple aged sixty five would get twenty six six. That's why I'm using the example of twenty six six weeks in two thousand eighteen you gotta standard deduction of twenty four thousand and both are over sixty five. They get thirteen hundred each additional so twenty six six so if you had no other income, you could take twenty six six from your IRA. And still the I seventy five thousand of capital gains would be taxed at zero. That's pretty awesome. And it really does make room for a tremendous planning opportunity. It's also one of the reasons, and there are many why individuals that are in their sixties. Ought to seriously consider postponing taking their social security not only because it's the best annuity. You can buy inflation adjusted, but it buys you more room to be able to liquidate capital assets at zero percent tax rate and or do Roth conversions at the lower ordinary income tax rate. Now, if you want to do both it's gonna take some tax mechanics. Or at least machinations to determine which one is going to be more suited for you. If it's money that you want to leave the ears. The RAF may make more sense. Because remember stocks that have gains. Left to heirs receive a step up in tax basis. I had an Email question on that over the weekend. I forget who from idle probably come up sometime this week. But it was an excellent question. Do I sell and get the capital gains rate or do? I do a Roth conversion. And in my communications it was. Well, this is money. I wanna leave to my kids Roth conversion because the Roth conversion means all of the growth from now until the day, you die grow in the kids as state. At essentially because they're going to get the money tax free. And only have to take a required minimum distribution of peanuts. And any gain in a stock? Remember, this is so important. Gets stepped up tax basis upon death. And so therefore if your goal is to leave a bunch of money to the kids, you don't sell stock today and pay a capital gains tax. Even if the tax is zero. If you could do a Roth conversion and offset your ordinary income with much much much lower tax rates because the stock is going to pass to them tax free. Anyway. But to do that without pushing a pencil to it and getting serious financial in taxes systems would be foolish because everyone's situation is different. The thing to understand is married. Couples today. Get a twenty four four standard deduction and about almost seventy eight thousand dollars. Of ordinary income. So that takes them up to about one hundred and four thousand dollars, you can earn one hundred and four thousand dollars and any capital gain that falls within that hundred and four thousand bucks in two thousand nineteen will be taxed at zero percent rate. Rest taxed at fifteen percent all the way up to taxable income of almost four hundred and eighty thousand dollars. It is a tremendous planning opportunity to be discussing early in the year. Mike right now. Financial? We'll be back. You like business content. I mean, if he did like business content. You wouldn't be listening to this show. Right. What if I can give you even more of what you like? Now, we've never met. But I'm willing to bet you were very busy between your work.

She's only fifteen and she didn't earn six hundred dollars. She was just under the six hundred dollar limit. We had previously opened a Roth IRA, and I did the parent match. And so she was able to contribute to that. But because under six hundred dollars, I think that means she doesn't have to file a tax return. So should if you're gonna do a Roth. She can do a return she can do one for free and take like two minutes. And so she should file because she has. Yeah. And the Roth is so advantageous to her that it's worth doing, and she can only do the Roth even what you match it cannot exceed what she earned, right? We opened up a year ago. And so she put in five hundred dollars a year ago and then five hundred dollars because I did the match with her, but she still didn't hit six hundred dollars. So I'm wondering if there is a requirement for her to file because of the Roth even though she didn't hit the six hundred dollars. Or is it just a nice thing to do to get back the twenty five dollars or so that she put in for? So my understanding is that to be. Properly eligible for Iraq. You got to file a return? Okay. And there may be a someone who does tax or CPA enrolled agent or CPO does taxi says, I'm out of my mind, but my understanding is that is a requirement to do the Roth is that you do file their return. But again. It'll be free to file, and I promise it'll take two seconds. You know, you can file a small return like that right on your smartphone. If I remember, right. You could also go to irSgov and click on free file, and there's nothing to it to do. Kids return. No, I did that last year with the IRS free file now is there any reason that I would have to go with the same provider that I picked last year. Absolutely not you can use anybody on the free file list. Okay. And also there's credit karma tax. But I don't know they allow child returns that credit karma tax is free for any level of income. But in her case, the easiest would be Bill.

"To be that big of a deal in terms of the configuration. And if you wanna save a little bit of money, you can upgrade the ram. So, you know, go with eight gigabytes of ram, and then get ram after the fact, and and install it yourself. You do have that option with the MAC mini, which is a nice thing. But I'm hearing from a lot of MAC mini, folks, including I got this comment from listener, Chris Chris from Houston area. I'm a longtime listener just wanna get feedback on the mechanize -ment. I was really cited just as you about the new mkx many. I'm I've been waiting for the replace my two thousand twelve mini that's been you know, aging and the only concern I have was the pricing always of the memory and storage upgrades. I currently the two thousand twelve with sixteen gigs at a quad core. I seven that that's been working great. I've been meaning Ovalles one terabyte. So they like the same so evil a sixty curly as low as one hundred sixty seven dollars for the saying of model. I also take the EMA of that the seventy actually win is about two hundred seventy dollars. Well, apple one six hundred dollars for one survey. Fifty and unfortunately, as you mentioned, the no it sold of mop replaceable, at least they made the memory replaceable. It goes the same thing thirty to the memory from apple six hundred dollars while you can buy some, you know, party memory for less than half of that. So I am a saying apple to make some profit, but they buy wholesale. So they're paying less than what I'm seeing retail. And I don't really think they need to make that much money on this stuff. I plan on the game buying probably the the six or seven, you know, with with the one terabyte, I guess, I don't have a choice since I got a lot of enlarged iphoto library the music library. And I'm gonna be getting the minimum memory Nate. Exulting upgrading though at late at time to thirty. Hoping sixty four for what I'm doing. So anyway, but I'm excited about that. I also liked it you Meko care. So I have a two thousand thirteen MAC pro that or says 'fine, so I'm gonna stick with them. Not my primary. I like to have my MAG many terabytes, I think he almost five local have all my logo. I don't have to have everything in the cloud. Haven't local with timeline backup, saying marble walls. So anyway, joining show and thing or you sure what happened there. But for some reason that message got cut off. But I think you were finishing up Chris. And again, as I mentioned, I think the pricing. Yeah. It's a premium. I think it's something we just have to recognize that we pay as part of, you know, people like to call dabble tax, but it's just that premium price that we pay. I just wish that apple didn't kind of have this false. It's almost like a false bottom that I think, you know, they should've just charged fourteen hundred dollars for the new for the new MAC, mini and called it. What it was in configured it in a way that I think is a good base configuration. Like, I said sixteen gig. Sarim and at least two hundred fifty six gigabyte SSD, and then let people go up from there. And then it wouldn't be. So I think as painful, but you know, I I have to say I would consider, you know, if you wanna save the money, I think the best thing to do is maybe go with a little less SSD storage. And this by an external driver and external esus D that you can add on additional storage at a more. You know? No, less premium price, and that way, you can keep your boot volume in your apps running quickly and fast..

No. I don't. That's what a cool relationship. I love the okay. So USA group in in Texas, and your parents were sound like they were amazing, and they're missionaries and and in in work. So how did your faith become your own as you were growing up in that environment? Well, one thing I was again, so blessed because I was in church every time the church doors were open, my parents were very very loving. But they were also very serious about God. My dad and mom actually started a church in Kaleen, Texas. And so we started from the ground up which meant that it was a tiny church at the beginning. But I always had excellent hurt. Excellent preaching heard excellent Sunday schoolteachers, then I married a pastor who loved to go to seminars and kept and loves trying to learn more about Jesus Christ. Everywhere. I've lived I've had mazing teaching in the word of God. The reading of the word of God in prayer was primary and our homes everywhere I've been so it has been an amazing trip knowing God's faithfulness through parents..
