The aim of this paper is to determine the budgetary limitations and constraints in order to examine the effects of American tax cuts on the lower and middle classes. The expected outcomes of American tax cuts are to increase financial benefits, which is in direct opposition to the real effects of the tax cuts, which are to disadvantage the lower and middle classes. The aim of this paper is to determine if tax cuts are merely rhetoric that jeopardizes lower and middle-class economies by undermining the provision of tax benefits by limiting their economic and social benefits. Research Questions -How do American tax cuts influence the status of the middle and low wage American earners? Does lowering the tax rate help the everyday American with their finances? How does the tax cut encourage or demotivate, and discourage the interests of the lower and middle-class groups?
Intended audience: the paper seeks to incorporate the concerned lower and middles class-wage earners and their families, students transforming to the life of self-sufficiency and anyone who decries the economic disparities. The paper aims to intrigue readers to uphold their popular perception towards the economy. The article also intends to compel its readers to differentiate between the ideological promises from measurable, tangible and numerical outcomes.
Outcomes: the paper intends to shift the attention from the promises to the actual results confined in the legislative rhetoric by diverting the attention to deductive and measurable economic gains from tax cuts. The outcome of the paper will enhance the awareness and shaping of the policymakers to improve the future impacts of the tax cuts.

The critical outcome should be responding to how the health impacts of tax cuts can be beneficial to lower and middle class involving all other professionals including policymakers, finance experts, and the scholars.
The health benefits from tax cuts are directed to the wealthy Americans instead of the poorest with policies such as the Cadillac tax intended to harm the middle-class citizens.
Health benefits that are based on employment are at times exempted from tax illustrating that, it is the wealthy that benefit most.
If the Cadillac tax gets implemented, it is the middle-class groups that will suffer the most while sparing the wealthy class. It will reduce private the healthcare benefits and on contrary raise revenue that will ensure the wealthy are catered for on their interests.

Information collection plan: to collect information through scholarly resources from credible databases and to use statistical economic data. The scholarly sources will include policy, financial and economic journals as well as the Google Scholar databases. The paper intends to use papers that were published 2010 and after.
Anticipated challenges: one of the expected challenges is the identification of causative variables among the tax policies and the economic impacts which tend to be correlational. The implications of tax reduction benefits to mortgage, education, health, social services may be correlated to some extent. It is difficult to measure or scale the direct impacts or effects in a given multi-pronged economies, the influence of consumer spending and has implications for corporate expenditures. Lastly, the challenge of the prevailing assumptions that tax increases the benefits to the rich which it undermines the poor and the middle class. It’s challenging to untie these assumptions as tax cuts maybe economically and socially decisive to the middle and lower levels.
