    All those lawmakers that are so worried about the cost of the tax bill are making it so much better by adding 55Billion for such things as the Rum Industry and Motor Sports Car Complex. I guess this will make it better for all those outraged lawmakers to accept. What a bunch of hypocrites.

    "Cost" necessitates an outlay of revenue.
    There's no outlay of revenue for tax cuts, and thus, no cost.

    Tax cuts may lead to LESS revenue, but that's not a cost; any effect of reduced revenue is not related to the reduction of revenue itself, but the voluntary decision to spend more than the revenue available.

    So the Republicans and Obama are making a voluntary decision to spend more than the revenue available by reducing the amount of revenue available while not touching spending,
    and you support it.

    Tax cuts don't cost anything.

    Only in a seriously screwed up mind can say that people keeping more of their money is somehow a cost to those who had no right to it in the first place.

    Do you work? Do you pay bills? Would a pay cut cost you anything?

    The government has a right to your money, btw. It's called the law.
