Nobody likes tax increases - so guess what a political party that doesn't care about the people's future will do as a political strategy ?

They lower taxes (especially on weathy and corporations) to a level that will cause massive deficits.


Then when the other party complains about deferred maintenance of infrastructure and a lack of new infrastructure, and social program cuts, or when the other party tries to say no to cuts in social security, and medicare, they'll say we can't afford it.

They'll leave the necessity of raising taxes back up to the other political party, as a way guaranteeing their victories in upcoming elections. Or worse case, the other party wins and raises taxes, as recession occurs - and then it's easy to crank up the propaganda about how the other party messes things up.

One way or another, maybe even with the help of the other party, they will do so much to stay on top of the definition of who the takers are and who the makers are. Hint: the takers are those poor people, especially minority poor people, and people that can't get jobs that pay a living wage. With AI and awesome technologies on the horizon, it's just going to get harder and harder for the people to deny that that they are the takers.

I'll admit it. Republicans might be winning the chess game. And I'll admit, that I am indeed going to be getting tired of their kind of winning.

Nah pay cuts will come first. Obama had 40K White House staff members making over $140K while championing 17 hour a week part time min wage jobs for Americans.
Fuck the Blood Suckers we've already established most of those Assholes will need to get a new Job. Fuck them, NEXT!

I can only present you with reality. I can't make you smart enough or honest enough to take it in.

I know what Trump told you he was going to do. Create high paying full time jobs. Fix health care. He's going to do those things exactly as much as Obama was "championing" part time minimum wage jobs. Actually - I think he has the juice that he could possibly fix health care, but he doesn't have the balls to do it. Best he can do is lie about it, in a way that could win some elections.

I know Obama and the Democrats' political strategy was; make new taxes inevitable by spending so much money on freebies for non productive people.

This will inevitably cause a tax increase on those who have more money, so it will have a wealth re-distribution effect.

The liberal lefty Democrats always knew they were spending too much money but they assume there actually is plenty of money; "the greedy rich" have it in various accounts and real estate and businesses.

Florida has no state income tax, low gasoline tax yet has nicer roads, free parking at the beach, and other things vastly superior to taxed to the hilt California. How is that possible?

It's not possible. Florida does not exist. It's a figment of Nazi propaganda.

Without cuts, what incentive is there to reduce spending?

Preaching fiscal responsibility to the left is pointless, you just have to take away credit card from irresponsible children.

funny stuff..cause massive deficits?...the deficits are already so huge they could never be paid...and yet you are still worried about them...forget the deficits...everyone else has unless it's not politically expedient to do so. What is the point of worrying about something that can't and won't be fixed?
