All of which help grow the economy and govt. revenue. increasing savings, investment capital all generate higher tax revenue as well as reducing demand for govt. help?=Goldenboy219;1059123860]This is quite the heroic assumption. It requires the belief that proceeds in tax cuts are spent. Do you have any data that can show how much of Bush/Reagan tax cuts were spent? Secondly, it ignores human behavior; people who are in debt will pay down debt/increase savings with tax cut proceeds during periods of economic hardship.
Again, you cannot control yourself. Deflection is a sign of weakness.
FWIW, the government received over $100 billion in TARP repayments this year, which will count against the deficit.
Much of the TARP repayment was made in 2009 where did the money go? Fact is over 250 billion of the 500 billion in TARP has been repaid. Where is the other 200 billion authorized by Congress? Retire it!!
