Not to annoy you with factual reality, but taxes weren't cut "for the rich." They were cut for everyone who pays income taxes under Reagan and Bush.

Revenues rose by 25% in the five years after Reagan's tax cut.

And after Bush's 2nd tax cut, revenues soared. There was no lack of revenues.

The problem was overspending both by Repubs and Democrats, allowed by Bush.

Which is one reason the Tea Party mentality began.

This fool ignores simple facts about taxing the rich. There is the Laffer curve and the Romer and Romer 2007 report. They found the Laffer cuve peaks at 33% and increasing it above that reduces the tax revenue.

Thanks, Barak.
Like people, the farther from home, the worse tax dollars behave

When your map disputes the territory, your map is wrong - not the territory
There is no retreating FROM a home - only to
Invisible Hands pick pockets
Humanity's law of the jungle is survival of the tribe

Only weak ideas must be protected from debate, and only religions declare people heretics

Nostalgia is the folly of going to a place, looking for a time
You cannot betray me, only yourself, to me
