Don't worry folks. More Federal moneys will be coming in soon per Trump/Pubs and those awesome tariffs. That should also satisfy the Dems who really believe.

  • Democrats get triggered and call names when called to task. You know about this.
  • Democrats have been reduced to a state of powerlessness (in terms of offices held) not seen for more than 100 years.
These are all certified. You are welcome.

Now this part is opinion. But remember this opinion too and note when it was made because it's said in the same light.

  • Donald Trump is going to continue to jack the jaws of the Democrats. Why? Because of bleating like in this topic, general hate on Americans, and complete derangement over Russians.
It's all opinion.

The numbers: The federal government ran a monthly budget deficit of $77 billion in July, up 79% over the same month a year ago. For the first 10 months of fiscal 2018, the shortfall totals $684 billion, according to the Treasury Department. That’s an increase of 21% compared to the same period in 2017.

What happened: Receipts fell 3% compared to last July, with the government getting less money from both corporations and individuals in the wake of the new tax law. Corporate revenues were down 34% as companies enjoyed a reduced 21% tax rate. And individuals continued to send fewer tax dollars to the Treasury, after lower withholding from paychecks took effect in February. President Donald Trump signed the law in December.
Tax revenues don't go up when the income tax is cut and I haven't heard much from Trump supporters saying it will. Not that you care about the truth.
Out of control spending is the problem and neither the progressive right or the progressive left cares. Just kick the can down the road.

All of a sudden the DEFICITS, and DEBT are important. Where were all the Dems when Obama ran up the debt more than any other President COMBINED!

Behind levels when we had wars going on in Afghanistan and Iraq, what a great argument for our current fiscal prudence. LOL

I don’t know how they got by with a military budget the equivalent of the next 10 countries combined.

Kudlow indicated the tax cuts would pay for themselves last year, havenít heard him use that tidbit again but he is proposing a capital gains tax cut this year.

Funny... Didn't Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush, et al claim that the Iraq war would pay for itself? Seems to be a recurring theme (another way of lying) for the republicans. I'ts time people stopped buying this garbage.
