“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.
So, to have any chance of making your point stick, you have to resort to the dishonestly obscure and self-servingly insipid. Evidently, that's the way you roll.
Anyone that cannot discern between expenditure and income not generated really should not be posting here.
anyway, who the hell asked you?
you and goobie evidently DON'T know that many words have more than one definition. and that reduced revenue has the same freaking effect as increased cost. instead, you want to argue semantics. typical when your stance makes no sense.

What the matter? Dont like free speech?anyway, who the hell asked you?
Then dont comment on a public board.
And YOU evidently don't know that when you have to dig and dig and dig for a defintion that suits you, it speaks volumes about the soundness (that is, th elack thereof) of your position.You and goobie evidently DON'T know that many words have more than one definition.
Ahh... moving the goalposts.and that reduced revenue has the same freaking effect as increased cost.
The issue isnt if tax cuts have the 'same effect' as direct expenditures, the question is if they are a cost. Since tax cuts do not come from an outlay of revenue, the answer is, unquestionably, no.
We understand that you and your ilk need to find a way to demonize the very concept of cutting taxes so that, hopefully, no one will ever accept the legitimacy of the idea; the desperate measures you have to take to do so are blatantly transparent to anyone with half a brain.
But, that's how you roll.
You win though...
Lowering taxes is not an outlay.
Will you admit now that taxes have economic costs, meaning foregone revenue?
