public education is a state matter not a federal matter. most of the crap that he listed is a clear violation of the tenth amendment ignored by the FDR lapdog jurists. we had fine education in this country-the best in the world-before the US government started meddling in it.
Taxes were REDUCED for a temporary period. Just like a sale at the gas station. Say gas = taxes. The price is reduced for lets say a weekend. The gas station will make less money during that time in hopes to gain profit in other areas. THing is, the ultra rich will not be spending more or even investing more because of the sale at the fuel pump. Not from anything Ive seen. Maybe someone can provide factual information on that topic.
Anyhow, temporary tax reduction of COURSE costs the goverment. You are reducing the amount taken in!!! Duuuhhh!

tax cuts don't have to be paid for. spending does. if a government operates on a balanced budget if there are less taxes there has to be less spending so you can argue that a tax cut (assuming that means less revenue to the government) would mean the government could not spend as much on other stuff. is that a "cost"
The CONSTITUTION (and that's the legal document governing the spending of the United States government, among other things) does not allow the government to spend taxpayer dollars on education.
Did I type slow enough for you?
Do you have any clue what the above statement implies, given the other clauses and amendments in the Constitution?
Do your betters always have to draw you a map?
Tax cut can be compared to working less. Would you say it is free to work less. Don't thinks so.
The high-income countries with the highest governmental spending are in this order
Sweden, France, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, Italy
Is Italy, Belgium and France known for their good welfare services. No, because even though they have high tax levels, they have a very inefficient economy.
But in this topic, I assume we are talking about more reasonble tax levels.
