    Since the current plan is only to allow the tax to expire on those making over 200k(250k for couples), we are only talking about people with very loose belts. It's not like they will have to give up much.

    She asked what's different.

    If you know that you're going to have less money next year, you don't get bold with your spending this year. And you can crack jokes about "caviar," etc., but the taxes affect capital investment and behavior toward same.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    Show me where these humongous cuts to the wealthy have affected jobs. The trickle down has not seemed to work one iota.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I know taxes going up will not affect my investing as long as I think I can make money.

    1) They weren't "humongous."

    2) 7-8 million jobs were created after they were enacted.

    3) You asked what was different today, so I answered it.

    What else you are going to cut back on to keep your level of investment steady when more of your money is taken in taxes?

    It's not a matter of comprehending, it is totally contrary to their goals. Statists want control and they will try to convince themselves (at least the deluded rank in file) that water flows uphill. 'Nuff said!

    "Created after" does not mean "caused by". In fact, since tax cuts other than the ones that will probably be allowed to expire occurred at the same time, and other factors came into play.
