    Two things.

    1) Thanks for implicitly agreeing that the tax cuts went to the wealthiest, and did little to nothing for anybody else.
    2) The wealthiest people already have plenty of tax breaks and loop holes, and they can afford to hire the best accountants to help them figure that out. I am willing to bet that the effective rate they actually pay is much more closer to the lower and middle class.

    The DEMOCRATS were responsible of the debt and deficits, starting FY2008 including when he was a Senator and then when as President he added his additional spending to their budget in 2009.

    Not everybody that earns more than you has access to the types of accounting tricks and loopholes that you have generically described.
    That is simply your jealousy shining through.

    The lower middle class pays nearly nothing in federal income tax.

    If the "rich" pay higher rates than you, you have no legitimate complaint

    I hate to point this out to you, but you voted for those bastards who tax the hell out of you.Take some responsibility. The new tax code decreased the marginal rates, extended some deductions and eliminated others. Vote for sensible state and local spending and you'll get a big tax cut as well. The rest of the country was SUBSIDIZING your state through all the deductions you had paying criminal local and state taxes. Taxes do two things. They raise money for the treasury. They also influence both behavior and voting in for those interests. Suck it up, vote the local bastards out.

    In this case........they like to pay higher local taxes for their progressive canard, while cheating the rest of the country out of it's just due. Well, Trump and Congress just ended that little ruse. :grin:

    In addition to the tax refund I got, my 401K and other investments are way up. It's a great time to be alive. Especially after the catastrophe that was Obama.

    The R's spent like a drunken sailor, expanded easy credit to housing for every American in their home plan.

    The D's increased spending 10% in 2008 and then 20% in 2009, when did the Republicans even come close?

    The "rich", what ever you mean by that, do not get welfare or many of the credits those with slightly lower incomes get.

    I would like to know how much income you consider rich for a single person and then for married couples.

    A Republicans are not against welfare. They work on providing jobs, education and iwer cist of living so more people are not forced onto the welfare system

    It's just like an instant replay every time they gain control. The old reverse Robinhood.

    There was a reason for those. The Bush crash. Remember?

    Trump just tried to stimulate an already health economy with borrowed money. Big difference.
