Is it though coming from a party of hate?
You folks on the right are all the same.
Once our future VP speaks a different language you all assume he is un-American.
Thank you for your reply, I will look up more on the history stuff in the coming weeks

There is nothing wrong with increasing taxes when needed. The GOP stance of never increase taxes is BS through and through. Look at G.H.W.Bush, he was forced to raise taxes and his party booted him out the door even though he did what was needed.
Completely correct. Even Reagan found out the hard way that sometimes you have to raise or impose taxes.
What taxes did he raise? Interesting.
Reagan didn't raise taxes per say. He made it harder to avoid taxes, decreased some federal tax breaks and closed some loopholes.
The end result was that a lot of people ended up paying more in taxes.
