    Here are some census figures:

    1990 248,709,873 9.8%
    2000 281,421,906 13.2%
    2010 309,162,581 9.9%

    This alone explains revenue growth.

    What revenue growth? Obviously you haven't been to the U.S. Treasury website. 4 million people unemployed since Obama took office and that means 4 million less taxpayers and 4 million more costs to the taxpayers that exist.

    There is no evidence tax cuts effect the economy, and I have shown that.

    But thanks for agreeing with me.

    Unless a textbook tells you something apparently facts don't matter. Like it or not, govt. revenue grew after the tax rate cuts as did economic growth. Why don't you check those textbooks for the components of GDP and figure out how tax revenue affects economic growth?

    you wonder what motivates the 4-5 posters on this board who spend so much time defending the government taking more and more wealth from fellow citizens.

    "the greater good" from reduced deficits BS doesn't cut it because these same people are massive supporters of more government spending and expansion

    Maybe Boo is in that group that doesn't pay any Federal Income taxes and that explains his statement. He isn't affected by tax increases because he doesn't pay any Federal Income Taxes?

    Not much according to actual data. We were functioning quite well back at the old tax rate, and doing quite poorly at the moment with the currant tax cuts. Again, you would be hard pressed to factually support your claim. I can't help that the facts are what they are.

    no idea but I see alot of that. one tax hike proponent bragged to me that he pays "TWICE" the average federal income tax bill.

    I almost peed myself. Given 47% of the population pay NO federal income tax that average tax bill isn't all that high.
