    Here is what happened:

    (1) The GOP passed record tax relief for the CORPORATIONS & the top 0.01% of wealthiest individuals.

    (2) Those tax cuts are PERMANENT

    (3) This is nothing more than bribery that benefits the GOP 'donor class'

    (4) The deficit during this period increased at a SIX YEAR RECORD RATE, all while the economy was claimed to be "great"

    (5) If the economy was so "great" as we were told then WHY IN HELL weren't they PAYING DOWN DEBT?

    (6) The working class folk aka the middle class got a 'bread crumb' tax cut that will EXPIRE in a few years.

    (7) This 'bread crumb' tax cut will NOT even keep up with inflation/CPI

    (8) Congrats to the dumb asses from the 'middle class' that supported Trump & the GOP.

    (9) You folks got screwed worse than any pooch .............

    Well make sure to elect more Dems to office so they can enact their “everything’s free” policies. That’s sure to improve the debt!

    No, but your posts make no sense. You are forming a circular firing squad. It doesn't work well.

    I'm sort of in the mindset that they all need to be shot. I am of course speaking metaphorically as well .(Moonbats can look up the word).

    I've reached a conclusion that either...

    A) Cloward/Piven have established the means for the dissolution of the US as a nation let alone a global superpower and the establishment of a global government to replace it as well as all other governments. By collapsing the dollar, which is pretty much what gives all currency any value as I see it, you would literally destroy the global economy.

    B) The government and people beyond those elected officials who wield power and influence in ways not quite obvious to the public have no concern about debt because money is basically a bugaboo. The only thing that gives it value is the belief it has any. There really is no limit on what can be spent because dollars are merely digits and electrons. There is no real limit on the debt and the issue is used to direct attention in a different direction so that people don't go after those power brokers.

    I really don't know anything though. I have my perceptions and beliefs based on what I've observed and read, and anyone who tells me they know one way or another doesn't have any more access to information than I do. That's why I don't take politics all that seriously. I'm more entertained by ridiculing bed wetters who desperately cling to nanny state tits.

    It doesn't really matter though. I'm 40 sumtin' and if I have 50 years left, nothing I care to do will change anything. I just want to enjoy my family, play with my toys, eat good food and become Emperor of the Western Hemisphere so that government can't fuck with me. I'd actually like to fuck with governments that oppress their people, that's why my first rule as Emperor shall be that everyone on this half of the planet has Second Amendment rights. Otherwise I have no interest in the behavior of other people.

    Uh, under the Trump tax cuts, the rich lost a huge tax deduction with the $10K cap on the deduction for state and local taxes. Also, the Trump tax cuts ended the tax-free status of American companies that operate and park money overseas--now they pay 21% on their foreign-made income, whereas before they paid nothing.

    And, uh, FYI, median household income has been rising steadily under Trump, whereas it was flat-lined under Obama.
