Poll: Majority oppose President Trump's tax proposal

Just days before his 100th day in office, the White House introduced President Donald Trump's tax proposal blueprint -- and many are not satisfied with what the administration has provided.

A new poll conducted by AOL News found that a majority of people surveyed oppose Trump's new tax plan.

Of those polled who have formed an opinion, nearly 60 percent said they oppose the president's tax proposal, while 40 percent of respondents said they support it.

In all, 15,936 people participated in the survey. Twenty-three percent said they need to know more about the plan before forming an opinion.

Best and worst states for retirement

1. Florida 

You knew it had to be high on the list, didn't you? In terms of affordability, Florida topped the list while it placed fifth in terms of quality of life, overcoming its 20th-ranked healthcare rating.

2. Colorado

Ranked second in healthcare while quality of life came in 8th place, Colorado is constrained by its 23rd-place ranking in affordability.

3. South Dakota

The home of Mount Rushmore is the second most affordable state and ranked sixth when it came to healthcare, but can't break the top half in quality of life (ranked 32nd).

4. Iowa

Not typically thought of as a retirement destination, Iowa has decent rankings across the board (9th in healthcare, 11th in quality of life and 26th in affordability).​​​​​​​

5. Virginia

Quality of life ranks well in Virginia (9th) while affordability and healthcare rankings are above average (18th and 21st respectively).

The next five desirable retirement states are, in order:

Wyoming

New Hampshire

Idaho

Utah

Arizona

46. Arkansas

Dead last in quality of life and 45th in healthcare, Arkansas is pulled up by its 20th-place showing in affordability.​​​​​​​

47. Mississippi

The same principle applies to Mississippi, but even more so. The state is 49th in quality of life and last in healthcare, but it ranks 10th in affordability.

48. Rhode Island

Healthcare is above average (22nd), but quality of life and affordability are poor at 46th and 48th place, respectively.

49. New Jersey

The least affordable state in the union also has below average rankings in quality of life (28th) and healthcare (33rd).​​​​​​​

50. Kentucky

Kentucky ranks 47th in both quality of life and healthcare and only 38th in affordability, earning the Bluegrass State WalletHub's least desirable retirement state ranking for 2018.​​​​​​​

One week ago, President Trump released a draft of his tax reform plan, proposing a restructuring of individual brackets from seven down to three: a 10 percent rate, a 25 percent rate, and a 35 percent and double the standard deduction. The earning levels for each bracket have yet to be announced.

The new plan also slashes the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent and eliminates all tax deductions, with the exception of mortgage and charitable donations.

After the reveal, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the landmark proposal's "objective" is to lower taxes for the middle class but said that he could not "make any guarantees."

Many critics, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have come out against the plan, saying it will solely benefit billionaires.

"Instead of focusing on hard-working families as he promised, President Trump's tax outline is a wish list for billionaires," Pelosi said in a statement. "What few details are here overwhelmingly cut taxes for the richest and do little for middle class Americans and those trying to get there."

Champions of the proposal include some business owners, who stand to see major cuts.

According to Reuters, Trump's plan would cut the income tax rate paid by public corporations from 35 percent to 15 percent, in addition to reducing the top tax rate assessed on pass-through businesses -- including small businesses, from 39.6 percent to 15 percent.

While there are some strong opinions on the proposal, the one-page document lacked significant detail -- most notably a plan to raise new revenue to avoid adding billions of dollars to the federal deficit -- leaving many eager to receive more details before forming an opinion.
