on their own merits, and not by their perceived class equity!
Debating the fairness or unfairness of a reduction in taxes plays rightinto the hands of both the Democrats and the Republicans.
The size of Government is the issue. Our taxes are a direct reflection of the size of our government. Any tax cut that brings about a corresponding decrease in the size of government should be celebrated by all - no matter who the direct beneficiary may be.
Any tax cut that does not result in a reduction of government isn't a tax cut at all. To continue the government at its current size, with a reduction of taxes, will force an increase in the money supply. An increase in the money supply will ipso facto reduce the worth of the money that you currently have. So any money saved by a tax cut eventually is liquidated.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PERMENANT TAX CUT WITHOUT A DECREASE IN THE SIZE OF THE GOVERNMENT!!!
"Americans are famous for hating Congress, but loving their own Congressman. 95% of Congressmen who run for re-election win. What hypocrisy."
I have heard it said that folks don't care at all if their guy is a crook, as long as he can 1) get them more than their share of the pie (read pork), and 2) keep all the other crooks (his coworkers) honest. Sad, isn't it.
"Warbucks, give me a break. In 1996, the Republicans didn't care a whit about terrorism. They were obsessed with getting Bill Clinton, not protecting this country from external threat. Sex was their opening. Perjury was serendipity."
Did you mean semendipity? And I expect that if they were condemned to spend eternity together it would seem like 1,000 eternities. For ALL of them.
