    Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War and brought down the Berlin Wall, resulting in the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
    Danbo is hard to impress.

        Reagan cut taxes for the highest earners, then he increased taxes on the working class 6 times including a huge payroll tax increase. Under Reagan the deficit grew from 70 to175 billion, then bush's dad from there to 300 billion, then Clinton to zero, then Bush Jr to 1.2 trillion. Republicans are great at cutting taxes for me, but they make your kids pay for all that money I get to put in the market.

          “but they make your kids pay for all that money I get to put in the market” !

          So who is the real ahole here ? Those who you claim are corrupt for giving tax breaks, or those such as yourself for taking advantage of the corruption you are claiming ? Ridiculing something on one hand and gaining on it in the other, presents a ‘wonderful’ image does it not ? You sound almost gleeful of the entire situation, the same one you have disdain for. Really, just where are you coming from ???

              When Trump and the Republican congress decided that I didn't have to pay any taxes on 20% of my profits I didn't have any choice. They decided that employees wouldn't get that kind of a gift, but because I own a business, I do. So my qualifying income, and taxes, were reduced at the highest bracket I pay.

              Sorry.

              The corporate tax breaks were poured into stock buy backs by companies pushing up the value of my portfolio. No I don't take any of those $$$$s and spend them, I push them back into the market thank you very much. Oh, NASDAQ down 20% this year? That's ok it's still up 200% over the past 5 years. Sure beats that 7% COLA on SS you all will get.

              You vote for these folks. Oh I agree, good on guns, good on immigration, but horrible for the working stiff on economics. Talk about a government handout! The poor get some food stamps and the wealthy get hundreds of thousands (or much much more) in tax breaks. And your kids will pay for it.

              Don't like it? Call your congressman.

                For some reason, reductions of income tax rates generally result in MORE tax revenue for the Treasury Dept.

                  Yes Bubba, you are correct. That was in response to free expert opinion from Rat regarding the ‘serious’ conservative mistakes in politics. We need to look no further than words from Rat to live error free and be worthwhile citizens !

                    Or that was the claim anyway. Also gold spun from straw. If we brought rates down to zero the Treasury would be spilling over with $$$s right?

                      No, the Laffer Curve shows that the least revenue (zero) comes from a zero tax rate and a 100% tax rate.
                      It's too complex to explain for the members of this forum.

                            I certainly hope you are correct Bubba ! However, there is still time for the dimwits to pass more vote buying legislation in order to get themselves out of the hole they put their party into. I put nothing past these liars and their corruptness is beyond paramount ! I only wish the midterms were next week and not 9 months away. Voters have a way of losing their memories after a few months !

                              Well, we'll see if this will make any difference.

                                I'm unfortunately all too familiar with the bogus Laffer Curve. It's now called the Laughter curve, it's most recent use was in Kansas. They paid Laffer to help set up the program they went from a budget surplus to bankruptcy in a year, and to cut everything, until they could throw out the tax laws they'd implemented.

                                First called voodoo economics, Reagan was a big supporter. Give rich people tons of money by borrowing from the Chinese, what could go wrong?

                                Ridiculous

                                80s recessions=Reagan 90s Bush, dot come=Clinton, see how it dips below zero, he had a big old surplus, and then boy Bush came in and said a surplus is dangerous and we oughta get rid of it, oh he got rid of it alright, called the great recession. Look up your Laughter Curve on Wiki, good place to start. Every money grubber that comes in says the same thing, and they just take money from the poor and middle class and give it to the wealthy.
