    Nonpartisan Tax Report Withdrawn After G.O.P. Protest - Yahoo! Finance

    The entire GOP strategy is based on the premise that tax cuts stimulate the economy. If that is untrue, what do they have left?:clap2: Sooner or later, voters will finally catch on to the shell game that the GOP has been playing for decades.

    Yeah, but since they have all signed a "No Tax increase" agreement, they will continue to push their lies and falsehoods...I am beginning to feel sorry for the clueless wonders.

    It is a demonstrable fact of history that every major tax cut in the last 100 years has been followed by prolonged economic growth and by an increase--yes, an increase--in federal revenue. This happened after the Harding tax cuts, the JFK tax cuts, the Reagan tax cuts, the Clinton tax cuts, and the Bush tax cuts.

    If government spending is the only thing that creates jobs, what happens to a government-funded job when the government funding runs out?

    If gov't spending created jobs then we wouldn't have an unemployment problem by now.

    another in a long unbroken string of fail threads by you.

    The article says nothing about why the GOP insisrted it be taken down. The reason was i'm sure, that the report was a lie.
