    No, not real cuts. You should look at it very closely. A large portion of the cuts are things like reductions in military spending already expected because of the planned reductions in troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan. The cuts in there are just a token so they can say they did something. The Democrats proposed $4T is actual cuts and revenue increases and got turned away. The McConnell thing is maybe, at the most, $1T. They accepted $3T in additional deficits just to facilitate this little circus they're putting on this week....

    ... and I could go on.
    What do grad students have to do with what Greenspan said?

    The government gives corporations a tort-liability shield. This is a special perk given by the government which allows people who hold stock in a company to escape liability they would otherwise have been jointly and severally liable for. Traditionally, partners in a company are always held jointly and severally liable for the torts of their partners, even if they had no involvement in them. This means that their personal assets of the partner who wasn't directly responsible for the tort can still be seized to compensate a victim, up to 100% of the injury. But in a corporation, the government steps in and deprives that victim of their rights to seek compensation from the partners in a corporation. Thus victims of the torts have their rights taken away by the coercive protection arrangement between stockholders and the government.

    Next time somebody says that the rich don't get more from the government, just remind them how many law suits those wealthy people have evaded thanks to government-back tort-liability shields. Anybody who has ever owned stock in a corporation has personally had their pocketbooks protected by the government.
    Your obviously intelligent, insightful post is a like a drink of water for a parched woman. I think if I'd read one more kneejerk, attempted slap-in-the-face, insulting post, I would have been a goner.

    Thank you, sir.

    That was before you changed to different data showing 17 million jobs were created during the Reagan years.
    What do the numbers show?

    January 1981 99.9 million

    January 1989 116.7 million

    You do the math

    Of course no one paid 90%, they kept their profits in their businesses. The huge tax cuts allow many to speculate in the stock market. The tax rate in the 1920's was 25% and Calvin Coolidge lowered that to 24%, then the stock market crashed.

    Good, now where is the apology. Clinton inherited an economy that had created a couple million jobs in 1992 and it had been out of recession for almost 2 years.
