They've been talking about "trickle down economics" for decades now, when are we expecting to see results? All I see is the wealth gap getting bigger, rich people getting richer and poor people getting poorer.

There has been clear results, you are just blind to them.

Are you arguing the rich are not getting richer and the poor are not getting poorer?

Good enough. You know how it is here with things... my apologies.

I thought his hue was more George Hamilton.

Any tax cut is better than no tax cuts for the American Voter.

It's kinda crazy how quick some biz's are acting on the news.

Fifth Third now has Huuuge rates on their CD's, you wouldn't believe how great the rates are, very great.....Am I right?

Lol

So, the deficit doesn't matter.
I am an American voter and I disagree.

With this tax plan? Absolutely. Low class individuals benefit quite a bit from it.

I think things are moving in a positive direction now.
Trumps policies? Maybe.
Mostly people are just happy Barry is gone.

Yeah, if you're earning $25k, $200 is a lot of money.

You are aware that half of the American population don't earn enough money to actually pay tax... Right?

Some certainly are.

Some are more concerned with erasing anything and everything done during his administration. No matter what.

The government has to shave 140 billion a year for 10 years if no new taxes are generated from growth. That is from a $4.1+ trillion budget. I'm for smaller government, so naturally I'm all for shrinking the budget, which they will have to do in 2019.

...and upbeat about leaving an unpayable debt legacy for the next generations. Yay for partisan politics.

And the ones just above that threshold now also pay zero in taxes.

So this time next we can expect to see 60% of the population paying no tax?

2019 is when the mandatory budget cuts will come into play because Trump won't sign this bill until after the new fiscal year passes.

I never said that.

Deficits matter more when your economy shrinks.....I'm all for cutting fat in the budget, as usual and we need to do that as well.

Give me 4 years of 4.0 GDP and let's see where the deficit and America ends up. Growing the economy is always the best way to solve a ton of problems we face.

We still need to repatriate all that offshore Corporate money as well.

Again, I'd be for a massive Infrastructure Bill too and that would add to the deficit. The payoff in GDP is a no brainer.

My main point is the American voter cares what effects them personally. Deficits are an abstract that they don't see like an extra couple grand in their bank account.

If you don't want your extra thousand, I'll take that Tax Grief off of you.

In the form of income tax? Most likely. Is that a bad thing? Should the guy making $25k a year say f.k it I like taxes and pay the extra $2,500-$3000 burden they would currently have? If you say no, then you support a portion of this tax cut, and should do more due diligence into what it actually is instead of relying on others to do the work for you to form an opinion on.
