ACA gave health insurance to 20 million more people.
Gave? GAVE? GAVE?
“independent economists overwhelmingly side with democrats on economic policy”
Anyone with a functioning brain would oppose the Republican tax ‘plan’ – which is nothing more than the same failed conservative economic dogma: the ‘trickle-down’ myth.
It is a settled and accepted fact that cutting taxes for the wealthy neither facilitates economic growth nor helps create jobs.
Well Ronald Reagan is easy.
A Treasury Department study on the impact of tax bills since 1940, first released in 2006 and later updated, found that the 1981 tax cut reduced revenues by $208 billion in its first four years. (These figures are rendered in constant 2012 dollars.) The tax reform act of 1986, which was designed to be revenue neutral, reduced revenues by less than $1 billion four years after enactment.
Rand Paul’s claim that Reagan’s tax cuts produced ‘more revenue’ and ‘tens of millions of jobs’
Note the hyperlink to the Treasury department study doesn't work. Just one of the many bits of government research that the Trump administration has scuttled down the rabbit hole. But the key is that those that claim the Reagan tax cuts resulted in additional income are counting the income generated by Reagan's TAX INCREASES in 1982 and 1983 and 1984 and 1987. And what is really comical, Ronald Reagan is responsible for the BIGGEST TAX INCREASE in modern American history.

I agree. There are plenty of examples of you being full of shit. This thread is a good one.
What is your point? Should we prevent people from making money or force them to give every cent after a certain point?
Do you really want people like McCain and Waters making that decision? They are borderline retarded.
Why would I want to prevent people from making money? What a dumb question.

Obama said, “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money”
Do you agree with that, or was it a dumb statement?
We're not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned. I do think at a certain point you've made enough money, but you know, part of the American way is, you can just keep on making it if you're providing a good product
Yeah, at a certain point some make more money than they will ever need, it's just the way it is. However Obama never enacted or tried to enact any policy to cap income. You're just playing a stupid game of semantics by not quoting the comment in full. It's dishonest, sure you probably believe it, only because you're incurious and ignorant.
I agree with it. I think it would not be hard to imagine a number past which people are incentivized less to generate each extra dollar of income And the ones who want to make that dollar anyway will be contributing 90 cents of it to valuable programs which create the very environment which has allowed them to thrive. I think that's a great idea. Win/win.

Well, gosh, Mr. President, thanks for letting us continue to make money.
As long as you don't decide our product isn't good enough.
However Obama never enacted or tried to enact any policy to cap income.
I'm sure it was a struggle for him to resist the urge, eh comrade?
