    Everything the left says about taxes is an outrageous lie. And the left knows it too. But they are more interested in getting their hands on your money than they are in prosperity.
    The indisputable, undeniable fact is that low taxes brings in businesses, creates jobs, and stimulates considerable economic growth and GDP.

    Here is an extremely progressive company shutting down construction due to fears of Seattle tax law (proving once again that progressives refuse to live under the same policies they demand everyone else live under). If taxes were so “wonderful” and created prosperity, Amazon would demand higher taxes - not halt construction out of a paralyzing fear of increased taxes.

    More indisputable proof that lower and lower taxes result in greater and greater prosperity for all....
    Nancy Pelosi tried to call the tax cuts "crumbs". The results have not even been the whole bag of bread - they've been the whole damn bakery!!! Record highs in the market. Record lows in unemployment. Companies investing in their people and their infrastructure (just as history has proven over and over and over).

    Sorry Nancy Pelosi, Apple’s record-shattering buyback program is proof positive tax breaks work

    So lower taxes will trickle down to the average American Consumer?

    Q. Since this has been tried before, and failed, why would anyone believe the same thing done again will trickle down this time

    A. Those who are insane, apparently.

    The Bill pushed by Ryan, and signed by Trump is a shame, and exposes what many of us already know and knew, that Plutocrats supported Trump, and will continue to support him because it is good for their pocket book, and Ryan saw the writing on the wall and will end up in a high six figure job in one of the private sector think tanks or Wall Street Firms, which benefit from the Bill; and they will find ways to keep the largess given to them and not use it to, "stimulate considerable economic growth and GDP".

    T&R were slick, as are most con men, they give a few hundred dollars in year one, a little less in year two, and by year three - after the 2020 election, when States Raise taxes, and inflation continues to rise, the poor biddable fools will finally see they were screwed when the see their tax bill in 2021.

    No...it doesn't "trickle down" at all. It floods them in wealth. Just look at the nation right now. Look at the headlines.

    We are already growing . You save that card when economy is on the down.

    You just ignore the whole fact that the government runs on a deficit. That used to be a big deal with you righties .

    Do you expect to pay the bills with smiles and sunshine ?

    No. In fact, I'm disgusted with the federal budget. I'm just curious why you are pretending to suddenly care? You've cheered like hell for years while Obama was spending us into collapse.

    Ahahahahahaha! The timing on this couldn't be more perfect. After ultra-progressive Amazon put the breaks on due to failed progressive tax policy, even the Dumbocrat representatives of Seattle had to wave the white flag. :laugh:
    Nothing ends in poverty like failed left-wing economic policy. Good for Amazon and Mayor Durkan for at least cutting the insanity in half.

    Seattle City Council votes 9-0 for scaled-down head tax on large employers
