FWIW, given your grasp of the topics you try to discuss, e.g. supply side economics, I'd ask my Alma mater for my money back.
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
"Wealth of Nations," Book V, Chapter II, Part II, Article I, pg.911
It does seem that the book smart people on this thread have difficulty with logic, common sense, and actual facts. Before claiming anyone is losing the argument you would have to provide proof of that. Looks to me like the personal attacks and baiting are coming from you.
All this is is class envy and warfare that makes no sense. I have asked over and over but no answer, tell me what economic prediction this Administration has made that has been accurate? They now claim that the expiration of the tax cuts will provide another 36 billion in revenue. Where is the proof of that?
Where is the guarantee? What do people do when they get to keep more of what they earn? Your take home pay goes up and what do you do with the money? The rich are no different, they spend it, save it, invest it, or pay down debt all positively affecting the economy just like you and the millions of others in this country do with their personal income.
