And Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and who knows where all.

Maybe we wouldn't have been fighting Covid if Trump hadn't restarted the funding. (which he didn't pay for)

Trump pulled down all of those wars he inherited.

A Prog and their theories. The same thinking that has half of South America, Central America and the Islands with extra helpings of other nations around the world at our Southern border.


You are dealing there with a derp and a troll all rolled into one.

Not factual. In fact, the pumping that had been ongoing since 2008 stopped when the Fed made its fist rate increase in years in December 2016 and then followed with several more under Trump.

It didn't stop but I was speaking on actions under Trump. Yes we pumped from 2008 till 2021 roughly.

Facts.



The government collected a record $4.9 trillion in revenue last year, according to the latest report from the Congressional Budget Office, a nonpartisan federal agency. That's nearly $500 billion higher than what the CBO had projected.

Receipts from corporate income taxes, meanwhile, were $425 billion, exceeding CBO's projection by 25%, while receipts from individual income taxes were $2.6 trillion, exceeding CBO's projection by 11%.

Federal revenues are now up about $1.5 trillion, or roughly 40%, since the Trump tax cuts went into effect at the beginning of 2018. By comparison, the cuts were initially estimated to cost the government $1 trillion, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

Pumping ended in December 2016 and only restarted in 2020 with pandemic relief.

Yesterday, the House Financial Services Committee released its hearing schedule for October. There is not a peep about holding a hearing on the unprecedented hundreds of billions of dollars that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York is pumping into unnamed banks on Wall Street at a time when there is no public acknowledgement of any kind of financial crisis taking place.

In spite of all the lies from the left and the usual CBO incompetence.

Why so many lies from Democrats and the MSM about the Trump tax cuts?


Tax cuts signed into law in 2017 by then-President Donald Trump have raised revenues for the federal government over the last five years, despite concerns among Democrats and other critics that the cuts would be a fiscal nightmare only benefiting the rich.

Federal revenues are now up about $1.5 trillion, or roughly 40%, since the Trump tax cuts went into effect at the beginning of 2018. By comparison, the cuts were initially estimated to cost the government $1 trillion, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.
"We have higher tax revenue right now than we've ever had in the history of the country," Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) told the John Solomon Reports podcast. "Think about that: Everything we've been through — COVID, inflation, all of the challenges of the last 36 months that our country has had — we have higher tax revenues than we have ever had in the history of the country."
Trump signed the Republican-backed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law in December 2017. The legislation simplified tax filing for many families and lowered the tax rates paid by most filers. It also cut business taxes, including lowering the corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21%.
Democrats and experts from left-leaning organizations blasted the tax cuts as a ploy to benefit the rich exclusively in a move that would cause deficits to soar.
"Last time Republicans held the majority, they enacted a $2 trillion tax scam that funneled massive windfalls to the biggest corporations and wealthiest families — which increased the deficit because the GOP did not provide offsets," Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday in a press release, echoing a common talking point of hers.
President Biden has similarly said "all" of the tax cut benefits "went to folks at the top and corporations," a claim deemed "false" by the Washington Post's fact-checker. Biden's White House has also claimed the Trump tax cuts would add trillions to deficits over the next decade due to less revenue.
However, beyond raising revenues, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowered taxes for all income groups, particularly the middle class, according to studies and government data.
Americans with adjusted gross income (AGI) between $50,000 and $74,999 saw a 15.2% reduction in average tax liabilities between 2017 and 2019, the year of the agency's most recent available data, according to an analysis by Americans for Tax Reform. During that same period, Americans with AGI of between $75,000 and $99,999 saw a 15.6% reduction in average federal tax liability.
In 2018, middle- and working-class Americans received tax cuts of between 11% and 88%, at least double that of wealthier taxpayers, according to an analysis of IRS income tax data by the Heartland Institute. Those earning between $500,000 and $1 million received single-digit cuts, and those reporting an AGI of between $5 million and $10 million paid just 3.5% less in taxes.
"It is the working class who have made the biggest gains under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act," Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.), the new chair of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, said in December to mark the five-year anniversary of the Trump tax cuts. "Not only did working families get to keep more of their paycheck, but their paychecks grew the fastest compared to every other income group."
...


I just read the CBO report and it doesn't assert that the former fuckups tax cuts increased revenue. They do state it's from an increase in GDP the last two years.

Excerpt

Tax revenues are sensitive to economic conditions: Typically, as economic activity or prices increase, so do revenues. Differences between actual economic activity in 2022 and CBO’s projections for that year were a significant source of error, as the combined effects of the economic disruption in 2020 and legislation enacted in response continued to affect the economy. The factors influencing those underestimates of revenues will be better understood as more detailed tax data become available over the next two years.

Thanks President Biden.

LOL. Now think about it. The tax cuts helped increase GDP, which increased total wages because of more jobs, which increased tax revenues collected, both from the employer's share and the employee's share. All you have to do is put two and two together. It's right in front of your face if you bother to open your eyes.

that's not true. He did come up with a peace plan to finally end the Afghan war, but maintained troops and a base there, along with our allies, until we saw the Taliban actually moving forward. Sadly, Xiden won, and he ignored it, and the Taliban knew he was weak.....so they got him to surrender and they retook their entire country.

IRS data proves Trump tax cuts benefited middle, working-class Americans most​



Income data published by the IRS clearly show that on average all income brackets benefited substantially from the Republicans’ tax reform law, with the biggest beneficiaries being working and middle-income filers, not the top 1 percent, as so many Democrats have argued.

A careful analysis of the IRS tax data, one that includes the effects of tax credits and other reforms to the tax code, shows that filers with an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $15,000 to $50,000 enjoyed an average tax cut of 16 percent to 26 percent in 2018, the first year Republicans’ Tax Cuts and Jobs Act went into effect and the most recent year for which
data is available.

Filers who earned $50,000 to $100,000 received a tax break of about 15 percent to 17 percent, and those earning $100,000 to $500,000 in adjusted gross income saw their personal income taxes cut by around 11 percent to 13 percent.
By comparison, no income group with an AGI of at least $500,000 received an average tax cut exceeding 9 percent, and the average tax cut for brackets starting at $1 million was less than 6 percent. (For more detailed data, see my table published here.)

That means most middle-income and working-class earners enjoyed a tax cut that was at least double the size of tax cuts received by households earning $1 million or more.
