“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

Look, to ignore that the tax cuts of the 80's and 90's didn't spur the greatest chain of growth and prosperity in this country is to simply bury your head in a true partisan fashion.
I don't own a business, nor am I an economist by any means, but I do know that when taxes are cut to business, and to the public spending happens, and tax receipts at the federal level always seem to be reported as 'unexpectedly high' the media. Also when business knows what is coming their way they can plan for it and move forward.
Problem is on that point, is that we seem to have a President, and party in charge at the moment that loathes business, thinks our greatness is undeserved, and views America as an ignoble venture. That can not continue if we are to remain at the level of living standard we have enjoyed since before any of us were born.
And you're right about that. Why do you think that is? because there is a vested interest in keeping that block of voters dependent on government handouts. Same with the pension system in this country....and there is absolutely zero chance of any elected democrat that I know of ever cutting spending in a social welfare program.
No, people are arguing now because we have a current government that produces extremely complex bills of 2000 plus pages, that the legislators will not even read, laden with unintended consequences that in the final assessment are going to kill business, kill standard of living in this country, and force working people like me to subsidize those towing the liberal government line.It might not be fair, but I think that's why people argue with you.
Yeah, these people have got to go!
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
