    You’re welcome to prove you’re claim. We both know that you can’t though.

    You really don't think my campaign slogan for the DP will work?

    VOTE DEMOCRAT FOR TAX HIKES, OPEN BORDERS, SANCTUARY CITIES, AND GUN BANS!

    Shucks! I was expecting Perez to send me a big check for that gem. :)

    Back up what? That this would be a great slogan for the DP:

    VOTE DEMOCRAT FOR TAX HIKES, OPEN BORDERS, SANCTUARY CITIES, AND GUN BANS!

    Or are you suggesting that the DP does not stand for "TAX HIKES, OPEN BORDERS, SANCTUARY CITIES, AND GUN BANS!"?

    We get it. You like to make things up you can’t substantiate.

    Why refuse to answer? What specifically do you think is made up?

    Already told you. Feel free to substantiate your claims. We know you can’t though. It’s why youve been dodging since I called you on it.

    translation: he didn't read it folks....nor can he logically and factually point out one paragraph in the article that he can disprove. He'll just keep parroting the SOS without a shred of documentation...second rate propaganda by MolonLabe that's all headline but no article.

    So all the PROOF that what you say is not happening since Reagan revved up this crap is just ignored by you. Your insipid stubbornness and denial is obvious.

    Well, your Orange Pated god in the White House keeps adding to the list of "fake news", so I'm interested in what sources you consider valid.

    You can find accurate news in the biased Fake News media. Look for articles that report against the bias. They are more crediible.
    Hard Left publications are far more credible than the MSM. The Nation, MoJo, The New Republic, The Guardian ... are useful.

    For instance:

    “There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee’s system on July 5 last year—not by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak—a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system. This casts serious doubt on the initial “hack,” as alleged, that led to the very consequential publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer.”
    THE NATION, A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year’s DNC Hack, Former NSA experts say it wasn’t a hack at all, but a leak—an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system., By Patrick Lawrence, AUGUST 9, 2017.

    You have yet to offer any proof that tax cuts are not always good for ordinary voters and the economy. Not a smidge. :)

    Generally, economic growth increases revenue, both corporate and individual

    Example;

    BEFORE TAX CUTS

    May 2013 cumulative individual income taxes; $874 billion
    May 2013 cumulative corporate income taxes; $142 billion
    https://fiscal.treasury.gov/files/reports-statements/mts/mts0513.pdf

    Plus economic growth =

    May 2016 cumulative individual income taxes; $1.038 trillion.....up $165 billion since May 2013, and in today's dollar, up $176 billion

    May 2016 cumulative corporate income taxes; $162 billion......up $20 billion since May 2013
    https://fiscal.treasury.gov/files/reports-statements/mts/mts0516.pdf

    AFTER TAX CUTS

    Plus economic growth =

    May 2019 cumulative individual income taxes; $1.160 trillion......up $122 billion since May 2016, however, $47 billion lower compared to May 2013 to May 2016 period

    May 2019 cumulative corporate income taxes; $113 billion......down $49 billion since May 2016
    https://fiscal.treasury.gov/files/reports-statements/mts/mts0519.pdf

    Thus, Generally, economic growth increases revenue

    Agree or disagree?
