    One solitary month does not the long term effects of a fucking tax cut signify, you sub-dolt. Especially when part of the package was a sweet heart deal for corporations evading tax to reshore it, as several did in January.

    We'll see. But I wouldn't expect honest debate from many of you on this as further outcomes like these will threaten your tax and spend instincts you are so sure can solve everything.

    There's nothing to 'honestly debate' here you cracked nut- there's one month, characterised by one-time only windfalls which won't be repeated. You don't even have a decent anecdote here. Rather than ONE MONTH why don't we look across the last 100 years at the correlations between corporation tax rates, the proportion of total tax taken from profit vs Labour, economic growth and growth in income for the bottom 90%? You wanna have an 'honest debate' about that? Why did your country grow most quickly and broadly when it taxed profits most highly?

    What's happening here, basically - the country is continuing the sluggish but steady growth it's seen since 09 basically with zero meaningful deviation in the trends of the last Obama years. An usually long credit cycle (as you'd expect after such a huge crash/deleveraging) which will soon come to an end.... and like you do near the end of any credit cycle you start to see some upward pressure on wages as slack in the labour market decreases. This time far less than usual since, bogus headline unemployment stats notwithstanding, there's still quite a lot of slack, but the trend is always an accelerating one anyway.

    Until it stops. Which btw won't be down to trump any more than 2018 being reasonably strong was or this winter following last summer was. In fact tax give aways will keep the dance going a little longer than it would. The consequential effects of his policies will be felt more long term like every presidents are. And they'll be bad.

    For one, "the country is continuing its sluggish growth..." Is that a prediction?

    I know you think it is "inarguable." That is the hilarious part. You are naive as hell.

    Double L just got a $1.50 a week raise at his coal mining job and he can't believe his dumb luck right now.

    He'll completely ignore the fact that the present guvment is hard at work scaling down all safety regulations at his dangerous job, raising the cost of his health insurance, would love to let his company release all their dangerous tailings into the stream running through his backyard, paying for their tax cuts by sloughing the responsibility onto his local government, which will be forced to raise all his local and property taxes in the very near future (which he will blame on local politicians of course), gas taxes going to go up, tolls going to be installed on many roads to pay for the Holy Ones new "Infrastructure Plan" that doesn't include any Federal funds.

    Typical Trump corporation bullshit. Passing the buck to lesser entities and claiming fucking victory by plastering his name on fucking buildings all over the place that he had no hand in actually building.

    But hey, he can finally get that Costco membership he's been pining for all these years.

    "Our true choice is not between tax reduction, on the one hand, and the avoidance of large Federal deficits on the other. It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, so long as our national security needs keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenues to balance our budget just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits… In short, it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now."

    First, history wasnt very kind to that argument -Defecits grew and growth slowed.

    But leaving that aside he was arguing in favour of lowering top rate taxes from 91% to 75% in that speech. Let that sink in.

    What does this have to do with 50+ years later and a compulsive lying, narcissistic egomaniac in charge?

    This belongs in the "Did you know that Lincoln was a Republican?" bin.
