    What part of people leaving THE STATE don't you seem to understand?????? How do you collect taxes or sell homes to people LEAVING THE STATE?? Are you people really this poorly informed

    The thread title is: GOP tax cut: Revenuse (sic) grow, rich pay more

    I've posted all of that, complete with graphs and links.

    If people were fleeing the state, then house prices would drop. So would the tax base. My point: That isn't happening. Now, please do read my post before responding.
    Got it, the article posted was wrong because the population is growing, doesn't matter that it is with the homeless, illegals coming for all those free services that the taxpayers leaving the state will no longer fund

    So you believe the rich can fund your liberal spending appetite? You always care more about what someone else pays than how the money is wasted and how state and local responsibilities are shifted to the federal govt. Brilliant liberal strategy that has been rejected over and over. You posted revenue data for tax cuts that went into effect February 2018 and ignored the largest monthly budget surplus in US History in April. What is it about liberalism that hates seeing others keep more of what they earn?

    The claim is that lower tax-rates bring in more revenue. That seems not to be the case. I made no other claim in my post.

    Treasury seems to disagree with you, so why don't you call them and tell them that their numbers are wrong? You always post data with no context. If federal income taxes were cut then post federal income tax revenue which you haven't done. I have done that over and over again and still you have class Envy, jealousy and want to promote higher taxes on others

    My numbers are U.S. government figures. If you think the U.S. Treasury disagrees, the obligation is on you to cite contrary information -- not to take the lazy way out and simply assert.

    Your numbers are total and totally ignore the FIT line in the treasury data.

    Here is your problem, FROM TREASURY

    Personal Income taxes

    January-March 2016 1.928.9 trillion

    January-March 2017 2.018.9 trillion

    January-March 2017 2016.5 trillion

    Looks like an increase to me on FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

    Means nothing if it doesn't pay for spending.

    You have two different numbers for January-March 2017. Perhaps the last one is January-March 2018, which shows a DROP. (2016.5 trillion < 2.018.9 trillion.) Remember, January-March 2017 were under the old tax laws, so there is no surprise it's higher than 2016.
