    My favorite liberal threads are the ones with the word "reality" in the title. I know when that happens I'm going to read some tripped out shit.

    First, you can reject out of hand any article that talks about what tax cuts "cost." The assumption that all money belongs to the government and what they allow us to keep is "cost" or "spending" is just pure evil. Normally I stop reading anything that says that at that point, but I read on this one a bit further since I had been rewarded with a thread by a liberal with the word "reality" in it.

    It goes on to say that the biggest adder to the deficit is income tax cuts. Here's why that's a liberal circle jerk. By law, the CBO cannot incorporate economic gains into it's calculations. The reality is the largest gains have the largest benefit as long as the tax code complexity remains constant. So, as proof that income tax added to the deficit is skewed by that it can't incorporate the effect of the tax cut.

    Liberals, gotta love em. At least they are funny.

    Tax cuts do not cost the taxpayers money.

    Tax cuts save the taxpayers money

    Government spending costs the taxpayers money

    Government borrowing and spending costs the taxpayers money plus interest

    Taxcuts themselves cost money and if not paid contribute to the fucking budget deficit you illiterate fucktard, they don't reduce debt and create high levels of economic growth, more proof again that Repugs care fuck all about the deficit, just getting rich.
