    Read Art Laffer's comments on tax cuts, he was the author of the Reagan Tax cuts then apply some common sense to the issue. What do you do when you get more money in your paycheck? Again, get the four components of GDP and that will help you understand the benefit of tax cuts

    Right, liberals always laugh at the concept of people keeping more of their own money. It is frustrating here that you have a conservative fighting for your right to keep more of what you earn. If you truly believe the govt. needs the money more then put your money where your mouth is and send them more of your paycheck and have all your other liberal friends do the same thing. Funny, I haven't seen that happen as it does seem liberals want to spread their misery equally to everyone else.

    You have a habit of asking questions with obvious answers. The republicans were once again holding a gun to the country's head.

    How were the Republicans holding a gun to the head of the country? Do you know what a lame duck Congress is and which party was in charge of both Houses then?
