Congressional Research Service Report On Tax Cuts For Wealthy Suppressed By GOP
Once again, the GOP is trying to deny the facts.
This was non-partisan committee and was a study brought in fruition by the republicans trying legitimize their "lower taxes for my buddies" plans. They got more than they bargained for and tried to suppress it..
But, I am sure that committee is now "partisan" or even "librul", and there will be plenty of people attempting to say otherwise.
I am not sure that right wing myth will ever die.
Truth has no place in right wing politics.
where would liberals be without the green eyed monster and hate of others
Steph. do you believe that lower tax rates on the ultra rich will benefit you?
Or do you just dismiss anything that doens't fit into your belief system?
The report in question was never requested by any member of Congress, according to it's author Thomas Hungerford. Obviously the report is a political bonus for the Obama campaign, appearing at a most opportune time. Turns out that Mr. Hungerford has donated to the Obama campaign and Senate Campaign and worked as a economist in the White House budget office under Bill Clinton. So, one might question if the report was politically motivated and possibly flawed in it's accuracy. There are other studies that purport the opposite of what Mr Hungerford's study says; apparently it was not peer reviewed.
I will tell you what I believe. I believe any additional money taken from the rich will mean additional spending. I know we will continue to have deficit spending.
Our problem is not low taxes. Our problem is big spending.
