I think your government needs a lot less money than it's collecting.
It's all being levied in the name of "social responsibility" Dong...

Do your handlers know you've turned against the idea of "socially responsible government"?

Jeff, I'm all for reducing government and therefore the cost of running it.  I'm just saying that cutting taxes doesn't necessarily mean there will be less tax revenue.  Cutting taxes stimulates the economy which means more jobs and more buying of goods and services, and that would mean more tax revenue.

That's supplyside economics so you must have read up on it because you sure the fuk didn't undestand it a few days ago.

It will be interesting to hear how Craig takes that one! I think he's already come to understand it's pure bullshit crap. In fact I think he's already said so.

Would that it were that simple and direct Ruby. Cry

Alas, it is not.

If spending and borrowing and artificial interest rates and discretionary money and too much "regulation" are crushing the economy, a temporary tax cut does nothing but temporarily create illusions of prosperity

Well, the tax cuts should be more and permanent.  We should also reduce spending by getting rid of whole government departments, starting with the Department of Education.  Then maybe we can't work on getting rid of that national debt.

Why is it Ruby that you don't take my word for it when you say something wrong. You then have to ask Craig and end up being embarrassed by him too.

Both Craig and I know the answers to the questions you're going to ask because they're always going to be elementary shit. Maybe in a couple of months you will get around to being able to ask questions that only I will be able to answer correctly for you.

Try the skychief, he's full of libertarian shit and he will usually get it wrong. Then you will have something to disagree with me about.

Then Craig and I can take you down together!

Exactly!

Finally, someone who gets it.

That's why Trump's tax cuts are half-baked. 

Cuts in taxes, but no cuts in spending.

Deficit spending is the only outcome.  National Debt worsens.

Sad.

You anger is making you crazy. You've attempted to dodge Ruby's comments on her supplyside fantasy:

Over which Craig and I have already shot her down in flames.

Get over your pouting or resort to some more laughing man videos, you petulant child.

Oh, and hurry back to the discussion on health care. I'm anxious to rip you a new one on that topic!  Embarrassed

If only people would open their eyes and see how over taxation, over spending, and overregulation is bad for the economy.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media will always try to cover up this fact.  They keep people's minds on things like racism, sexism, and, "chaos in the White House."
