    Yeah, right.

    Maybe you can explain, oh ye of superior intellect.
    So you cannot dispute the factual nature of what I linked to.

    I shouldn't have to explain anything. The case is laid out in simple English in a very simple manner. It also clearly explains the bias in the Politico piece and how it's not really supported by anything concrete.

    Had you read it, you'd know that.

    You're welcome to play your silly games by yourself.

    Hey rocket88... enjoy your tax cut!!! And if you’re in a high tax state... enjoy paying your high state taxes... just consider you’re paying your fair share...LOL.

    Thanks for the predictable and rehearsed Left wing talking points, theyre nonsense of-course

    As if the Democrats or the Left cares about the Middle class, they and people like you are still defending ObamaCare, a horible law that continues to soak the Middleclass

    Elections have consequences, and its so enjoyable to watch Obama's disastrous agenda be unraveled bit by bit
    And its even more entertaining to watch the unprecendented corruption that happened under the Obama administation be exposed

    I'm not a corporation, so my taxes aren't getting cut.

    Not really.
    The moment Democrats retake power, suddenly the GOP will go back into "Oh my GOD the DEFICIT!!! It's ALL YOUR fault!!" mode again.
    Because this is the Republican formula:

    1. Pass massive tax cuts for the top 1 percent.
    2. Run up the deficit.
    3. A year or two later go, “Oh my God, look at the deficit! This proves that spending is just out of control!”
    (especially if Democrats retake the majority and, God forbid, the White House)
    4. Start taking the axe to entitlement programs and the domestic discretionary budget.

    And so Democrats may well retake power in 2018*, and possibly even in 2020* inheriting a mess from Trump and the GOPsters.
    A deficit.
    Maybe a tanked economy.
    Maybe even another globally catastrophic economic meltdown.**
    (**This one is KEY because during such meltdowns, they are able to vacuum up bankrupted assets at fire sale prices.)
    Maybe a war, or two, or even three, at a few trillion dollars each, and NOBODY WILL DARE to question spending for that, even if we attack the wrong people,
    or botch the aftermath so spectacularly that we get dragged into another endless quagmire.
    And it will be the Democrats job to try and fix it again.
    And they will try like Hell.
    But only to a point. ***
    (***Because deep down most of today's Democrats lack even the semblance of a spine)
    The Republicans will then obstruct and try to prevent the Democrats from actually fixing any problems, because Republicans will know deep down that public investment and restored revenue would fix the economy, but they’ll scream bloody murder because… it increases the deficit!
    They will again target the social safety net, whatever is even left of it at that point.
    God help them if they manage to take it all this year, because they won't have any programs for the poor left to target if they do.
    And they will have world record amnesia about how all their profligate giveaways ramped up the deficit in the first place.
    They will outright lie about it, just as they always have.
    They will continue to engineer things so that the recovery is tepid, so they can get the Democrats out and cut taxes for the rich one more time and balloon the deficit and start the whole process again.

    (*provided liberals - millennials in particular, actually get up off their asses and vote for Democrats in sufficient numbers)
    The term "LEFTIST" is now the official RW substitute for "JUDEN".

    That is propaganda 1.0. The media has assumed for years that if you chant something, over and over, the mindless mob will join in and sing the chorus. Trump has undermined that formula by not playing ball. Nevertheless the media still keeps trying, since their base likes to sing chorus.

    If you think of this logically, you are saying that 2/3 of US citizens don't want a tax break, so they can have more money in their pockets. That does not make any sense. However, it sounded musically appealing, and that alone was sufficient to get the chorus on board.

    The propaganda trick is similar to listening to a catchy song in a foreign language. Even though you may not be able to understand the lyrics, the human voice sounds like an interesting musical instrument, that adds to the catchy sound. One likes the beat, the tone, the rhythm and the metering, even though the meaning behind the words is out of reach. With the foot tapping and keeping beat, the chorus will use the sound to project their own meaning into the foreign song.

    Ummm? No mention of the state run media Pravda, sorry, Fox.

    A thread whining about the media and doesn't mention Pravda, sorry again, Fox?

    I wonder why.

    This post makes it seem like you're a liberal impersonating a crazy conservative.
