If they dropped a truth bomb on Washington.
Imo lying is so ingrained into the DNC’s DNA, even a ‘truth bomb’ wouldn’t get them to speak it..
Also, I’m going to take this opportunity to stump for the Laffer Curve again.
Since we’re currently above the Laffer Peak, raising taxes would NOT give the politicians more money to spend. They would have less to spend.
Economist Art Laffer is still alive, and has approved of the Trump tax cuts. Cutting tax rates would give politicians more money to spend.
However, as we found out in the Reagan years, politicians were eager to spend spend spend all this wonderful additional revenue coming in. Nothing was too frivolous to spend money on. We must not.
The additional revenue will be factual proof that liberals are wrong about how money works. None of them, no not one, is expecting more tax revenue following a tax rate cut. That’s because none of them can understand a simple 2-dimensional diagram, upon which our entire economy is based.
Since they were wrong about raising the revenue, they are also wrong about how best to spend it. Don’t let them have a say. Cut the budget hard. Cut spending to the bone and then find a bone saw. Cut, cut, cut! The economy will respond tremendously to this, and round 2 of MAGA will have begun.
Then keep cutting spending and tax rates until you get it right. In a few years the economy would be about 4 times what it is now (this happened with Reagan). That means the natl debt has 1/4 the drag on the economy. That’s when you pay it down, and then pay it off completely.
Start of the new Jacksonian Era.
Democrats can always overpay their taxes if they want. They can write a check to the US Treasury and send it in anytime they want. Nothings stopping them. They can give as much of their money to the US Treasury as they desire. In fact, I urge them to do so..!!
The plan is to get everyone’s tax rate way up so that it’s “fair”.
Then they bribe someone (like with the Obamacare waivers) so they don’t have to pay that crazy price. They’re special, and better than the rest of us, so why should they have to pay taxes like a commoner?
If you listen to Dems, they always sell the idea of the taxes by promising to tax “somebody else”. Wow how great is this? We get all these government freebies and someone else pays for it. It’s the socialist dream!
The somebody else is a worker. People who work and produce (conservatives) are taxed to pay for the idleness of people who consume but do not produce (liberals). It’s the same concept Rome used during its Bread and Circuses phase. Right before the big crash of course.
Just like all those over-rich liberals can also do the same. BUT THEY never wish to do so, they just want EVERYONE to get lynched by higher taxes, which they then do their damnest to get exempt from..
Great cartoon, and factual. Is it any wonder that the democrats use the Jackass as the symbol and mascot for their political party? The Jackass is stubborn, loud, and stupid.
And very aptly named!
This is a man who would be figuratively tarred, feathered and run out of the Democrat Party on a rail today:
“Tax reduction thus sets off a process that can bring gains for everyone, gains won by marshalling resources that would otherwise stand idle — workers without jobs and farm and factory capacity without markets. Yet, many taxpayers seemed prepared to deny the nation the fruits of tax reduction because they question the financial soundness of reducing taxes when the federal budget is already in deficit. Let me make clear why, in today’s economy, fiscal prudence and responsibility call for tax reduction even if it temporarily enlarged the federal deficit — why reducing taxes is the best way open to us to increase revenues.” — President John F. Kennedy, Economic Report of the President, January 1963.
