    They did it under Bush.

    The Truth About The Bush Tax Cuts And Job Growth

    They didn't make jobs and added trillions to the deficit.

    So will even more tax cuts be enough?

    Corker and McCain said they wouldn't vote for something that added to the deficit. You know the Democrats won't vote for it.

    What is it with Republicans and their need to crawl and scrape for the rich?

    It's impossible to give tax cuts to the poor. So by default, only the rich get tax cuts. The richer the person, the bigger the tax cut.

    How come this is so hard to figure out?

    Rewarding teh same assholes that stabbed this country in the back with their outsourcing and offshoring. Trump lied to the American people in the election as he said he'd punish these bastards.

    Drudge was concerned today that people who make more than $1 million per year were not going to get enough of a tax cut. That must resonate really strongly with Trump's yokel rust belters.

    If by rich you mean small business owners I'm all for tax cuts for the rich. Because those rich employ a large percentage of American workers.

    These people are so freaking dense that they'll probably sell themselves into slavery as long as Trump talks softly to them. They're like dogs. Pet them a little bit on their head and they'll forgive any butt fucking.

    Yes, they employ a large percentage of American workers. They make a profit on that too. I don't fault them a fair profit, but why should we give them more? They only hire more when the market requires it. Extra cash doesn't mean more employees It just goes in their pocket.

    Republicans see small business as 100 million and up. You know that so don't dissemble.

    According to you Communists, "the Rich" are those making between 100 and 300,000 a year. The Oligarchs like Tim Cook. Warren Buffet, George Soros, et al are not "rich" according to you Stalinists.

    The reality is that you Marxists are at war to crush the middle. You seek to protect your masters by pulling up the ladder of success to ensure that the middle never rises.

    That's got to be one of the lamest arguments ever.

    You don't have to give tax cuts.
