Then of course the chart dems don't want to see, the deficit:

You numbers show the federal deficit going DOWN after 2010, interesting.

We have two sets of numbers you believe what you want to believe it’s a free country.


Thanks for sharing!

Due to democrats pushing for sub-prime loans, and banking oversight committee members sitting back and allowing F&F to buy up toxic mortgages. It sure as hell was not because Americans paid lower taxes.

All the numbers for 2010 are just an estimate.

They don't have to; it's been convincingly proven numerous times that cutting tax rates results in soaring amounts of new revenue into the US Treasury, as numerous articles in the WSJ & elsewhere have pointed out over the past three decades.

If the Democratic playbook of 'soaking the rich' was really worthwhile, Detroit would be as pristine as The Donald's and 'El Rushbo's' estates in Palm Beach, instead of serving quite nicely as an indictment of Democrats from coast to coast.

The long-running Democratic startegy of soaking the rich, as well as mandating offshoring thanks to an out-of-control legal system, rampant environmentalism and pandering to union members while ignoring the 90-plus percent of Americans who don't belong to job-killing entities such as unions.

The fact that all of the states with the highest tax rates, the worst balance sheets, the biggest deficits, and the most hostile business environments, starting with the anything-but-magnificent seven encompassing IL, CA, NY, NJ, CT, OH & MI have been controlled by Democrats for decades is another 'incovenient truth' that they cannot deny, even as their pals in the liberal media continue to cover for them.

Or the CBO projecting that Republicans will take Congress and slash deficits like they did under Clinton.

I really can't believe that people think tax cuts can cause an economic collapse. I guess if one tells a lie enough times people believe it.

Why do you have to pay for something that wasn't yours to begin with?

Why not just stop spending?

Well, the only way that cutting taxes can be a factor in a poor economy is if government overextends itself, borrows and spends too much.

0bama has increased the US federal budget by 18%, and added more costs to the government budget with the many new agencies and departments he has created.

I'd like to ask the democrats here, how did 0bama "pay for" the trillions of dollars it will cost for these new expansions to government?

No, the charts I posted had blue colored graph bars, red ones for 2010, and the note said "EST" or estimated for the red. So the values on those graphs for 2010 and beyond are not "hard evidence", they are estimates only. Sorry, I thought it was pretty obvious, since the graph used two different colored bars.

BTW, I think the value of 42.7% is made up.
