I knew it when I read the title of the thread my literal thought was...

"Let me guess raising taxes"

Thats not a time machine into the future....its a catalogue of failed promises that Democrats held over our heads like a carrot for decades.

Pfft. lol

I have no problem with cutting the military budget.

I would have zero problem cutting Federal spending down to almost nothing. Saving the money we pay 100,000 IRS employees would be a great place to start.


So are you against the latest GOP tax bill? Yes or no.


Yes I am for cutting taxes, but they needed to cut spending as well and don’t have the balls to do it which is my point. Also, I don’t agree with more than 50% of what Republicans do it is just that Democrats are so much worse.

In your own budget you can opt not to pay your bills and have more money in your pocket too, but guess what? When you do that you end up going bankrupt.


You can also cut spending which is what I advocate. Also, don’t lump me in with your straw man Conservative. I have no problem making budget cus that the weak ass Republicans won’t make.


I'll lump you in with whoever I damn well please; you already do it to me.

You have issues with supporting sound fiscal bills. Solely cutting spending isn't going to work. Even conservatives don't want to totally kill social programs. And there is no way that the military will be cut down either. Realistically, cuts are going to be small and argued over immensely. So taxes will STILL need to be raised; regardless of how you feel about them.

How could you raise taxes on the lower and middle classes? Think of the kids. What’s more import your taxes or children’s lives?

a reply to: avgguy

beyond the morality of greater tax burdens on people who are barely surviving, HOW are they going to raise taxes?

Like how are we going to pay them more than we already do?

I cant. Raise my taxes and I will start robbing rich democrats to feed my family. Things are as expensive and costly as they can be already.

Taxes arent justified by what we get back from them.

Stealth fighters cost lots of money. Roads and public services cost much less.

This lemon is already dry. No more juicy taxes to give sorry.

yeah go right ahead and take $4800.00 from me and my family
that will work out well for the blue guys

You are free to scoff, but this is simple economics. When a country doesn't have any money to pay its debts it goes broke. Recessions and then depressions follow. But I guess you like living in a country that runs debts like a 3rd world country.

CBO Warns Lawmakers That Interest Payments Will Outpace Military Spending by 2023

And I like the little crying game you are deploying about having to pay more taxes. Like your tax burden would seriously increase by $4800. *eye roll*

Oh look trying to pigeonhole someone into agreeing with you by trying to force a yes or no response to an obviously nuanced situation.

Nuanced as it is (and it's not), I could give you a definitive answer to my own question.

Nothing is simple with the dems and their shenanigans have been exposed.
like your dr keep your dr (shown to be bovine feces)
you people want to take the tax relief back that was granted from the recent bill?
that bill was the reason the raise i got was increased from last year
that bill included real world substance, not the "crumbs" the looney left wants everyone to believe
but go right ahead and attempt to tell people the tax relief made no difference ......if it made no difference then why do you want it back???

So democrats have just stated that they're the Socialist Party now.


At least they're open about it now.
