I have no idea what your point is, Grump. His tax cuts were a temporary thing....and yes, they aren't helping, I never claimed they were. It would be nice if they cut the spending to pay for the tax cuts, but neither party seems to be in favor of that. The dems will not balance the books, like I said neither party wants to pay for the deficit. They want to tax more and spend even more more. Don't be fooled by our government.
