    independent_thinker2002;1059113992]If the taxes went up it wouldn't be a tax cut.
    I see that you lost your Moderator title. Glad to see that, tax revenue is what I was referring to, not taxes going up. Expiration of the Bush tax cuts means a tax increase.

    You didn't read what I posted then.
    I have no interest in CBO projections or predictions, only Treasury data as to exactly what happened. Why you would buy what CBO says is quite interesting yet I don't see you ever reporting a CBO revision or acknowledging when they are wrong.

    An honest analysis of the numbers would be nice.

    Yes, honesty would be nice if it ever came from a liberal. As I posted the U.S. Treasury will compare revenue and expenses by year as to actually what happened. You might just learn something from that site.

    from Harshaw

    A trade war will not bring any jobs back.
    It will do one of two things:

    1- if we place a tariff on goods coming into the USA this money will go into the coffers of the Treasury and is badly needed by the USA.
    or
    2- Americans will still desire those products and will now be made here thus creating jobs for Americans.

    That is what is called a WIN WIN situation.

    You're kidding, right?
    Did you miss where 2/3 of their managers actually started out on the floor in sales or stock. How degrading. I'd collect unemployment before I'd take a job like that.

    LOL, yep, so would I. Why would anyone want to move up in a company when they can sit on their collective butts and accept unemployment compensation for over 2 years. How dare Wal-Mart promote from within. I did the same thing thus in the liberal world was evil.

    I didn't lose it. I misplaced it.

    Oh, a return to rates under Gingrich. That can't be so bad.

    Yet we aren't talking about predictions, but rather the analysis of data.

    Yes, except for five years since 1963, tax revenues have gone up every year under different tax rates.

    That is not even an answer. But it is what I have come to expect.
