    Besides these 5 points....these tax-cuts have been in-place for 7-9 years.

    If tax-cuts are the "cure" (to our economic-ills).....why haven't they WORKED, yet???!!! :cuckoo:

    One may be because you get peope to keep more money, but not control what they do with it. Maybe people saved it, as oppossed to spend it. Maybe spent more than can afford anyway.

    Let's ask a different question. Do you think people having less money (via expiration of tax cuts) will help the economy?

    That's an awful-lot o' maybes.

    Republicans
    always insist tax-cuts are the SLAM-DUNK to improve our economy....and, they never mentioned any maybes.​

    No....I prefer to ask what happened to that Guaranteed-outcome to tax-cuts......'cause we already KNOW what happens with the original-rates.​

    Um yeah, so those low unemployment rates all during the Bush admin weren't a result tax cuts.

    And the specter of Obama raising taxes isn't part of why businesses aren't hiring now.

    Nooooooooooooooooo, of course not.

    Taxes have NOOOOOOOOOOO effect on the economy.

    You tell yourself that.

    Please explain how more money out of the hands of the consuming citizenry equates to a higher economic output... you have been asked this NUMEROUS times... troll... without your winger links

    You act as if it was all the Clinton tax schema that beget the tech bubble boom of the 90's... this is HARDLY the case... you prefer not to answer because even your troll ass knows the truth does not support your winger claims

    LOL, do not expect an honest answer to this question; for those who truly believe tax cuts are the panacea for all ills - and there are some on the MB - challenging the dogma they hold so close to their heart will cause an emotional retort, usually a personal attack.
