    What ever shall Persons on the Right Wing in Congress, assembled, say; should St. Peter ask them--why didn't you simply Tax the Rich into Heaven and save the Poor, a lot of "heartache and grief"?

    /——/ How the hell is letting people keep more of their money a transfer of wealth from the middle class to the rich? That’s just plain stupid. The original tax cuts were too aggressive so they had to be readjusted. You are calling those adjustments a tax hike. Besides the democRATs double crossed Reagan and never cut spending like they agreed. I know, I was in my 30s and working when Reagan was president. Just give it a rest.

    I have no doubt that the piece said that.
    I've seen many pieces that make such claims with zero specifics.
    They're not very helpful to prove those claims.

    However if taxes went from $10 dollars to let's say $11, that would mean they were raised. Just how the world works and math!

    And if taxes went from $11 to $10 and were scheduled to drop to $9, but they stayed at $10, that wouldn't mean they were raised. Because math. Right?

    /——/ Here is why Regan had to readjust the tax cuts. Feckless democRATs can’t keep their word. Scroll down to the 1980s deal: You are being redirected...

    I never said you did.
    I suspect those that claimed Reagan raised taxes 11 times, or that his 1982 increase was huge, were trying to make that analogy.
