    Tax cuts reduce deficits.
    More spending raises deficits

    sarcasm? I'd laugh if there weren't those who believed that.

    It's obviously true. You need to find better sources.
    Tax cuts are always a good thing, and not just because they reduce deficits.

    Fake News is now very common. That's why virtually know one still trusts the MSM.

    Not according to math.
    Republicans are so incompetent that they slash revenue (tax cut) and INCREASE spending. Lol.

    Tax cuts stimulate economic activity and tax revenue. Deficits are caused by spending and the House alone has the power of the purse. I bet you know that. :)

    Which party holds the House?

    Short term activity during a recession. Nothing during good economy. And revenue goes down after a tax cut. Basic math.

    Republicans controlled the house in 2017 and 2018, as well as the senate and white house. I bet you knew that. They slashed revenue while increasing spending. Total fiscal incompetence. But that’s what repubs do.

    More money in the hands of Americans always stimulates the economy . Expanding a Big Bad Government is always a bad thing.

    RP/DP pols are very competent - and crooked.

    The data, and economists show otherwise.

    Rather obvious Fake News based on rather obvious Fake Economics.

    More money in the pockets of Americans is a good thing.
    More money taken from Americans to line the pockets of the corrupt political class and its Big Bad Government represents pure evil.

    Why do you feel making **** up is in any way a rebuttal to anything I said?

    What specifically do you want me to rebut?

    And why would I want to discourage the DP from publicly supporting tax hikes? ;-)

    I’d like you to support any of the made up nonsense you posted. We both know you can’t.

    Trump was the one who signed a ban on bump stocks - Obama didn't sign any anti-gun legislation.
    More people are crossing the border while Trump is in office than when Obama or Clinton were in office.

    Yes, Trump signed a gun law that doesn't interfere with the rights of gun owners at all.
    Trump's rational approach to running the executive branch is very reassuring to ordinary Americans.
