    What liberals complain about (and fiscal conservatives as well) is that the cost of the tax cuts were massive.
    do you not read posts on this board-does the obvious escape you.

    tax cuts COST NOTHING

    a fundamental concept that is obvious to anyone who has a brain

    One must wonder that about you.

    Not according to any economist out there worth their degree. Including economists for Reagan and both Bushes. No reputable economist will ever argue that tax cuts are revenue neutral.

    Tax cuts do not pay for themselves. Never have. Never will.

    lol. Good luck with that fantasy. Your argument that a pareto efficiency frontier is a viable economic policy is beyond laughable.

    So yes, the answer is yes , you are making **** up.

    "And who ever said that? Or are you making **** up again? "

    No answer from Turtledude.

    In the same way that refusing to make a sale reduces profits. oh wait. That just costs you as you can no longer allocate money towards certain cost and now must allocate those costs to another product thereby reducing profit on that one as well and as a whole reducing total firm profit. How many times will you be proven wrong on this before you change your belief?

    Inflow and outflow are the same coin. This isn't hard. It's only the end of the story if you are extremely dishonest and unwilling to actually discuss the subject like an adult.

    ah a tax cut reduces the government's revenue which is different than it costing anything

    Listen I tire of your sanctimonious nonsense and your arrogance of claiming I am not an adult etc. Why don't you just ignore me given you claim I am so inferior to you even though if we compared resumes I would happily bet a mint I'd win

    FAIL. Way to completely ignore my example proving you are, as usual, wrong. Reducing revenue while costs remain the same is in fact a cost in the same fashion that refusing to sell a product means you no longer have the revenue to cover fixed costs.

    Wrong. You tire of me constantly proving you are wrong. Oh joy. The lame "Look at my unprovable resume while ignoring my piss arguments!" is not a good venture.

    Kinda looks like the bill is coming due, ten years later that was promised by the government in the early 2000,s, where Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security all without funding is coming back to bite people in the a**. Instead of funding, we got ourselves a couple of wars and the defense buildups that comes with wars. The coup de grace to our economy came with the tax cuts, instead of raising taxes to pay for all of that, they were cut.
    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

    how much additional tax revenue will make up for all the obama reckless spending and how do you dems propose getting that revenue?

    if taxes are to be raised they need to be raised on those who aren't paying enough (and hence continue to vote for the spending)

    Raising taxes doesn't mean it will increase government revenues, nor does it mean that any money raised will be spent wisely. If the past is any indication, it won't.

    If raising taxes now is a good idea then raising them to 100% must be a great idea.

    The Democrats borrowed billions from the Chinese and a few hours later they were hungry for billions more. They should continue to borrow money from the Chinese, spend it just as crazily as they've been doing, and then print a few tons of the stuff to pay them back. It will certainly teach those Commies a lesson or two about capitalism.

    You're missing a key word there. Raising taxes doesn't always mean it will increase government revenues.

    nor does it mean that any money raised will be spent wisely. If the past is any indication, it won't.
    That is correct.

    If raising taxes now is a good idea then raising them to 100% must be a great idea.
    Does hyperbole always taste good to you?

    The Democrats two party system borrowed billions from the Chinese and a few hours later they were hungry for billions more. They should continue to borrow money from the Chinese, spend it just as crazily as they've been doing, and then print a few tons of the stuff to pay them back.

    Fixed.
