    US House candidate, NY-14


    The House GOP wants to add *another* $2.4 trillion in tax cuts after already cutting $2 trillion in taxes on corporations & the very rich last December.

    You ever notice how no one asks the GOP how *they’re* going to pay for it?

    'Sit this one out, CLOWN'! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez totally FACEPLANTS over GOP tax cuts

    Well, the good thing is that we'll see how supply side works. The deficit is ballooning. So, we should expect to see enough of an increase in tax receipts brought on by growth that they will more than "pay for" the tax cuts.

    We're paying for this growth and laying it off on our kids, again. Let's see if it ends up paying for itself. If not...

    As usual the gop will simply accept a larger deficit because as everyone knows a fine republican once said, Deficits don't matter.

    It's 'caramba', not 'carumba', but point made. OP doesn't much like a Latina getting so much publicity. Especially a liberal who doesn't believe most of the gains made in our economy need to go the the major corporations and top half of one percenters like most conservatives on this board seem to believe. Let's do something for the average person and the outright down and out folks. Decent and affordable health care and higher education for starters, if we ever expect to catch up with more modern first world countries.

    everyone knows that 'trickle down' does not work, has never worked, and will never work.

    The definitive attribute of 'trickle down' is the word 'trick' as the GOP uses the same ole 'trick' to try & make ignorant voters fall for the 'trickle down' scheme. It seems to have worked is the past & Trump & his minions have certainly revived 'trickle down.'
    It is a 'trick' on the ignorant masses & they have fallen for it, again.

    No, but then, the government is only supposed to defend us and leave everything else up to the States.

    That would be about 75% less than they spend now.
