    Anything that takes cash out of the hands of the taxpayers is detrimental to a private sector economy

    You do realize SS puts cash into taxpayers hands.

    Do you realize that your employer and you contributed to SS that you receive when you retire? Payroll taxes fund SS so now you want to do what most liberals do, kick the can down the road, live for today and figure out how to repay the fund tomorrow

    The answer to our economy is to recognize first it is private sector driven, second that individual responsibility exists thus consequences for failure, third, social engineering isn't the role of the Federal govt.
    Youíre right on the private sector driven economy. Check this graph out,


    Attachment 67118867

    Notice corp. profits as a % of GDP seems to be going up? It seems to me that the CORP PEOPLE seem to be doing OK though. Especially when you peek at that graph that shows CORP PEOPLES taxes as a % of GDP.

    That second graph, the one that shows personal wages and salary as a % of income must make you proud EH?We both know that its not representing the top % donít we?


    What do you consider social engineering? Do you think that stimulating the economy via Keynesian economics as social engineering? If so, you must be frowning deeply about the money we spend on missiles and bombs then.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    So let's start with repealing the biggest cuts first.
    IIRC in the BTCs the lowest bracket was reduced from 15% to 10% making the reduction 30%...is that the one you want to start with???

    So as an employer you contribute to someone else's SS as well. You don't think cutting FICA affects the money that goes into the SS fund?

    So you think it is right to take someone else's earning and give it to another person? Not sure exactly what your solution is but one would bet it has nothing to do with free enterprise and capitalism. You certainly seem concerned about revenue going to the govt. but not at all concerned about the 3.7 trillion dollar budget. Wonder why?

    Apparently you don't understand the concept of keeping more of your money. You claim you worked in the private sector? what happened when your taxes were cut, did you get more or less money?
