    I don't know about the tax cuts. The link didn't address those. But tax cuts have been proven to stimulate business and individual spending. One just can't grab on to tax cuts and say bad-bad-bad. The reality that matters is that Walker didn't take a surplus and turn it into a deficit as has been previously claimed.

    NO. What I think is that you have repeatedly demonstrated that you do not know the difference between a retail shopping experience where a consumer fills their shopping cart with only the times they wish to purchase and the far different reality of a citizen and their relationship with their government. Until you accept the fundamental difference between those two radically different things, you will never be able to make any sense on this entire issue of taxation.

    Interesting, so the public union employees go to the mint to get their money? Always thought liberals were clueless and simple believe printing money is a good thing.

    The corporate tax cuts do add to the deficit, the same way the Fed's tax cuts were passed and add to the deficit. The purpose and intent of the tax cuts were essentially the same, to stimulate job creation.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    Isn't it amazing that liberals always focus on the revenue side and ignore spending? Job and economic growth never enter the liberal world

    It's a tactic to lend credibility to their argument... I can't really blame them, their arguement is very weak so they have to use what they can to bolster it.

    yeah...no it's certainly not right. a person running a school district should make a decent salary. why do you oppose that?
