    but that doesn't necessarily incease revenues. But one thing is true-tax hikes cost US money. Tax Decreases DO NOT ALWAYS cost the government money even using that expansive definition of costs that the OP used.

    The dems are not serious about cutting the deficit but they want to tell their minions they are so they jack up taxes on "the rich" as a facade while spending trillions to keep their minions suckling on the public teat. Its like dems passing gun control to appear to be doing "Something about crime" while in reality punishing those who generally don't vote for them (gun owners) and actually promoting more depence on the government.
    My point still stands that tax cuts have a cost. You didn't really try to refute the major point of my post.

    One thing is absolutely true

    TAX HIKES HAVE DIRECT AND OBVIOUS COSTS to citizens.

    Why do people like you want to impose more and more costs on your fellow citizens.

    Because people like you have run up our national debt so high because of the decreases in taxes while waging four wars at one time and allowed so much of our nations' wealth to be outsourced to China and India and profiting on it while wage earners have had their wealth decrease.

    that is beyond moronic

    why don't you try to remotely prove it. its the entitlement nonsense started with the New Deal that costs the big bucks.

    and businesses outsource because of two reasons

    1) a business is designed to make a profit

    2) and dems have created an environment that retards the making of profits

    try again

    No. It's just as moronic as your stance.

    So what you're saying is that in order to better our country economically, we have to have an abused labor underclass similar to India's and China's?

    Where did I say that revenue and cost are the same thing? I said that they produce the same result. A decrease in 500 in revenue has the same net value as a increase in cost of 500.

    uh that is not responsive. Hiking taxes on the top 2% does not help an abused underclass. Weaning them off of dependency and ending the enabling of social pathologies would go alot farther in improving their lot than buying their votes with handouts and waging war on the wealthy with idiotic tax hikes.

    but it is clear you have no clue about the raison d'etre of a corporation and its not to supply you with a job or to pay taxes to greedy bureaucrats
