    A success would be if the results of the cuts corresponded with the promises, namely, large wages gains and corporations using the tax cuts for investment. There hasn’t been any large wage increases and corporations are using their tax savings to buy back stock, not invest in plant and equipment. That’s why it’s a flop.

    Here is a pretty good list of accomplishments that you want to ignore. what is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty and desire to promote economic and foreign policy malaise and appeasement

    That's an opinion piece by Hugh Hewitt. All he does is make a lot of assertions about a military buildup being good and that NAFTA was terrible but doesn't provide any clue as to why. In other words, this is merely a valueless opinion piece that provides no usable argument.

    Yes and his opinion piece is just as valid as anything you post with the difference being he actually cites specific which you never do. Canada and Mexico renegotiated NAFTA so if it was so good why did they do it?

    Mr. Hewitt provides no indication why he believes a military buildup is good or why NAFTA is bad. As such, his opinion is not as good as mine, which provides reasons to how I arrive at my opinions.

    Doesn't matter what he believes those are accomplishments of Trump whether good or bad is to be determined. You are convincing no one except radicals that the gop tax bill was a flop, the economic numbers are too good

    I know the board is busy, but I'm afraid I didn't see anything you posted in reply to my question of the negative side of stock re-purchase by a corporation, where you write much of the tax reduction is being used. If I missed it, I'm sorry. Can you please direct me, or maybe reply here?
    Regards,
