Thread: Budget deficit dives -- again

    Some things are not as complicated as some people make them to be. I am not claiming that I know more or less than anyone else. I am merely relaying that the budget deficit has decreased by some amount -- a decrease that the Congressional budget Office attributes to lower taxes. I have not made any implications about the national debt -- that is a different matter.

    Perhaps you can point out where the non-partisan CBO attributed a decrease in deficit to lower taxes. Alternately, you could admit your willingness to make false claims so long as they fit your particular ideology.

    skipster,

    I can gain 30 pounds by eating a lot of crap. Then I can reduce 10% of that food and lose 3 pounds and claim how successful it is since I have lost 3 pounds recently. This is the same as your tax cut analogy. The deficit increased for 4-5 years and now it came down the last 2 years and that is now a success. Give me a break.

    Big,

    The tax cut spurred economic growth, job growth, and income growth, all of which paid tax back to the government.

    Perhaps you're not getting it. When the tax burden of those who are willing and able to produce things and employ people, their businesses grow, because they have more resources (money not going to taxes) with which to invest in their business. When they grow their businesses, they pruchase things (that they pay tax on), they hire more workers (who pay taxes), and they pay people more (which equates to higher tax revenue). When they buy things, they are putting people to work to make the thigns they buy, so more people are hired and more taxes are paid. The people who were hired directly and indirectly now have more money, so they buy things and pay more taxes. Those with higher wages have more money, so they buy more things and pay moretaxes.

    This is not like your weight. You can claim that there is a minimum caloric intake that you must meet in order to give you enough energy to burn more calories. Than would be analogous.

    As for clone's post, he could admit his refusal to accept what the non-partisan CBO has said, but it is doubtful that he has read their report. He is personally attacking posters instead of sticking to the facts. It doesn't matter how much he claims I have some ideology or agenda, he still hasn't proven I am wrong.

    Clone has feelings. I have data. You decide.

    You're just a two-bit liar, Skipster. I see you can't point to anything to support your false claim about a position taken by the non-partisan CBO.

    Why do you choose to tell your lies on a wrestling forum is beyond me. I'm sure there would be other sites more receptive to your bullshit.

    I will work much harder too if I get a huge raise. I am not getting a huge raise though. Incomes grew for everyone? Bull$hit on that one, especially when you take inflation into consideration.

    Pssst, Big. You're not getting it. Just have faith in what Skipster is telling you.

    Btw, I saw Joel Osteen on TV last night, and was reminded of your thread about Christians and wealth-seekers. He (I guess the #1 preacher in America now--filled up Houston arena) was definitely preaching the gospel of wealth acquisition. Only, instead of hawking another get-rich variation of the Ponzi scheme, he was telling everyone God will be granting them favor (of riches).

    Still no substance. Please find another board to post on if you can't do anything besides throw personal attacks. If you want to debate the issues, we can do so. But you must quit swearing and calling names first.

    If you're weren't so busy lying like a rug, you wouldn't be attacked and someone might take you seriously.
