    Trump is giving tax cuts to the GOP donor class; that is the only thing this is about. Many cannot see that but that is exactly what is going on.

    Also what is going on: Tax receipts are down, all while the economy is doing well, and deficits & debt climb even higher.

    HOW IN HELL can you allow the deficits & debt to go even higher during economic good times? That is pure insanity.

    These folks that are cheering on Trump & his folly will one day wake up, when it is too late.

    One day when the economy goes south folks will be wondering WTF happened?

    Isn't all the money we are going to make on more taxes because of the economic good times supposed to help us pay back all the loans?
    That's what the GOP was promising when this got rolled out. 4.+ GDP will allow us to pay it all back and more.....

    But that is not occurring; tax receipts are declining. Why? The deep tax cuts offered to the GOP donor class & the corporations by Trump & the GOP.

    They collected the same amount of tax. Now you try to deflect with GDP, weak.

    The weak and ignorant switch topics as they lose on the prior one. You have offered no sources for your misinformed positions. I on the other hand proved you wrong on both counts. Taxes are revenues, while debt is a liability the two are not inverses.
