For everyone against the tax cuts;

How many of you will send to the government, they money that they didn't take?


Promises promises. I'll believe I'm getting a tax cut when I actually get a tax cut.

Does this plan affect your pension at all?

Those millionaire liberal congressman and defeated presidential candidates are loving the Trump tax cut.

All the while saying it's bad.

Fair enough. If you see more money in your pocket due to this plan, do you intend to give it to government because you are against having more?

And no, it won't affect it.

You made your money within the confines of this society not on Mars

You hired people educated by the society. You benefit from what the society offers you, gives you exposure to—so you have to pay

If not then move to the woods and live by yourself!

The United States GDP is 15 trillion dollars per year.

The United States GOVERNMENT(S) GDP, by itself, is 15 Trillion Dollars a year.

The government's GDP at 15 trillion dollars is generated by the over 100,000, yes, 100,000 federal, state and local agencies, all collecting money. Your INCOME tax is simply an enslavement tax, not a service tax - there is no direct connection between your income tax and the services your receive with one exception: your income tax gives you ACCESS to the services the government provides but not a right to those services. The government(s) do just find without it, but, if that GDP dips below 14 trillion I expect all hell to break loose from the disaster.

Budget is not a measure of the governments income or wealth, budget is for dupes who read the headlines of the New York times and think they know exactly how government works. I have yet to meet, in person, anyone who actually understands how government operates as a business, but I have met a lifetimes worth of people who think they know. I you know, you never speak, if you think you know, you hand make signs and stand proudly at rally's.

I you do not know the answer to this question, you do not know how governments work. In 1933 the government took away all the money anyone had in the US, what did the government replace that money with?

Well that’s the greedy and sinister politicians working for either Israel or the Military Industrial Complex, not the American people.

We have to identify them and vote them out.


But the point is the rich got their wealth from the benefits the society offers.

They don't get rich in a vacum

Guess which one we spend the most on with NOTHING to show for it ?

The WELFARE Industrial Complex.

The rich ?

The non rich ain't got nothing to whine bout with their benefits totaling over $100 Trillion.

www.usdebtclock.org...

On top of the non richs household assets totaling over $98 trillion.

If you benefit from the new tax plan, will you be sending the additional money you save, to Washington?

Industrial welfare complex ? Boy oh boy...You really hate poor people.

I myself have no hatred for rich folks, I’m happy for them if their happy.

Of course I don’t think wealth is the meaning of life or that it makes one happy in itself.

I just think in this world of suffering we should help those in need if we can, why not

nowhere in the meme in the op, is there a reference to taking other peoples money. the meme in the op is saying I dont want a tax cut, i want my taxed money to be used wisely. i want it to help our people and support the infrastructure. the meme in the op is being misrepresented to promote hate for liberals. the most shameful part of it though is that many just jumped on board and started hating also, instead of reading and trying to understand.

I have no delusions that my small money can do much by giving it back to Washington. I might take on a child in Children International, something like that.

But I will say this, IF I were wealthy, If God wills; I would give probably 80 or 90 percent of it to the poor.

I just don’t see the need for massive wealth for myself.

Most of us will put it towards a month of this sh!tty health insurance we're still forced to carry... or a pack of gum... if we even see a tax cut.

Tell you what.. I'll pledge here and now to spend every penny I save on amusement park tickets for poor kids if you pledge to do the same. We could start a movement together.

Yes I really,really do!

I actually think they are capable of taking care of themselves unlike LIBERALS that think they are nothing more than animals only to be fed scraps from their table.

You have no right to take my money and force me to pay for things I don't care about!


So, one should only be taxed for services one uses, or agrees with?

So you'll keep the money, but will still be against getting it.

Seek council with the forefathers by reading their teachings about why and how the economy was designed to work.

Oh before you think of it no, "but natives American's or women's rights" blah blah blah because the system they gave us and taught us how to use is what gave women their rights and freed the slaves. Through the power of the Republic and with the value of freedom held to the highest regard.

I was thinking more along the lines of Thoreau.

But nice deflection.

You didn't answer the question.

You’re really not listening to me or others who are questioning this tax bill.


First of all, I'm not against tax cuts for MC or poor people, or even tax cuts for the rich if there modest.


What most people don’t like is the humongous tax cuts for the rich.
