    Right, but business is in business to make money and if they don't make any money or don't invest in the business there are no jobs.

    Nice diversion, how did govt. revenue grow after the Reagan tax cuts? what affect do people have on the economy when they get to keep more of what they earned?

    Workers work to make money. And if they don't make money, they won't buy stuff. And if enough workers don't make money, they won't buy enough to encourage business to invest, and hence no jobs.

    Again, they need each other. Business isn't giving away ****. They need people with enough money to buy. The only way to have that is to pay them.

    Again, there are all kinds of reasons why the economy grows and shrink. You are amking, as you always do, a causal relationship error. A friend quit shaving after 9/11. NY hasn't been attacked. He says it is because he quit shaving. You're doing the same type of silly thinking concerning tax cuts.

    So being fiscally irresponsible is only excusable if your predecessor made the same error?

    Even conservative economists admit that tax cuts reduce revenue. Reagan's economics advisors have admitted. Bush's economic advisors have admitted. The ONLY people who stand by the voodoo econmics BS are poltical hacks who don't understand economics.

    Right now we have a net job loss and that is after adding 4.4 trillion to the debt. Yours seems to be a ringing endorsement of tax cuts for taxpayers.

    Better tell that to the Treasury Dept. which doesn't show that. What you ignore is human behavior and the fact that people keeping more of their money makes it easier for economic growth and that creates demand for jobs.

    So explain to me how govt. revenue grew after the Reagan tax cuts and how 17 million jobs were created and what affect those new hires had on govt. revenue?
