Trump has made the Government tiny compared to how Obama screwed it up. In defense of the illegal he never was and never will be a politician but more of an expensive manchurian from the Soros group of UN backed one worlders.

Obamacare, welfare, food stamps, Illegals, money to other countries are all democrat waste programs. Government should not be intruding in business other than safety. So it shouldn't be setting min. wage. They put extra taxes on pert neer everything just to get more money to waste. Seems every democrat president candidate wants a trillion dollar health care. If you can't figure it out, so sad.

Billions to farmers for problems created by Republicans. Billions for a needless wall. Billions to Corporate welfare. It seems every Republican in DC wants a few Billion for their pet Corporation. If you can't figure it out, you're willfully ignorant.

Well, that Republican spin on immigrants has you all tore up. Truth is, fewer immigrants are coming to the US. Check the facts instead of the Republican talking points. Facts don't have a party or a side. Lets use Walmart for an example. Walmart pays so little a large part of their employees qualify for assistance. Add that to the subsidies given to them and Walmart alone get 6.2 billion $ in assistance, annually. That's just one corporation. So, you can call me a liar all day, but you can't...

Fewer immigrants are coming to the US because the US is trying to keep them out while the Dems are trying to overload the country with them. A sensible wall would better control drugs, murders, muggings, illegal voting to name a few.

Illegal border crossings are down the most in the last 50 years. Yep, National Emergency. Republican propaganda is not fact. A good dose of truth wouldn't hurt any of the forum Republicans. You shopping at Walmart has no effect on their 6.2 billion $ handout. Are you a Republican first or an American? True Patriots are the ones working for Americans, not corporations. Democrats.

So you want to do away with "food stamps?" BTW, it's officially SNAP benefits - no food stamps in years. So your brother-in-law is seriously injured by an uninsured motorist, loses his job, uses up all his unemployment, but you don't want him to get assistance with purchasing food. So he'll be moving in with you, I assume The Bible says the poor will be with us always. Do you suggest we let them starve? And you wonder why some say Republicans are cold-hearted?

I will take care of my bro in law if that happens. not for completely cutting,,, however we are trillions in debt, we have to cut. Smaller government, close borders, don't send money (we don't have) to other countries. stop the billions to immigrants. Cut down pensions to govt. employees (most SS retirees paid in more than govt. employees to pension). stop pandering to media and make difficult decisions.

You mean like the false narrative that ANTIFA is an anti fascism organization or that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is intelligent? Anyone with a education can see ANTIFA is violent against anyone who does not share their beliefs and do not tolerate them, sort of like Fascist. Well all anyone has to do is listen to the new House Representative and know she does not have a clue. Seems liberals have the Dunning Kruger effect.

The recent doxxing of an Antifa leader was quite enlightening. One, Joe Alcoff had two other nom de guerres he operated under. He's a communist, who advocates for extreme violence. Works with Democrat politicians, was interviewed on MSNBC, and writes for several national publications. His CV reads like that of an 1960s radical -- traveled internationally to work with other reds.

Lamont, I've viewed the activities of three Democrat politicians presently in the news. Their views are out of touch with reality. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is currently the new thing with the press. Despite an economics major, she has no idea what basic economics statistics represent. She advocates numerous utopian dreams, but no idea how to finance them. For example, her Medicare for all plan would require a doubling of federal revenues -- not just income tax, but Medicare and Social...

As to facts, of the Democrats I've cited, one is new, untried and ignorant of economics -- AOC. The other two, Newsom and de Blasio, are experienced politicians, with years of experience. As to trickle down -- when JFK used "a rising tide raises all boats" Democrats hailed it. There are three examples of reducing taxes, resulting in significant revenue increases. None lead to major recessions. The reductions under JFK/LBJ and Reagan lead to economic booms. The one under George W. Bush did...

Thanks, guys. The article didn't need that much proof to back it up. Dire isn't telling all the facts. I'll bet each and every one of those tax cuts was followed by a raise in taxes after the cuts didn't work. I know for a FACT Reagan had to raise taxes, after his cuts, because the revenue didn't show up. Again, that's FACT. Seems like Bush1 got a lot of bad press, from his base, after promising 'no new taxes', then raising taxes.

Lamont, I suggest you research before commenting. It would reduce your embarrassment. When inaugurated, Reagan inherited a nation with 16 tax brackets — ranging from marginal rates of 14 percent to 70 percent. By 1989, that was down to two brackets — with marginal rates of 15 percent and 28 percent. Plus, the inflation indexing that pushed taxpayers into a higher bracket was removed. The increased revenue I posted was income tax revenue, only. The taxes Reagan increased the Highway Revenue...

Yes, Reagan raised taxes after the 1981 tax cuts and before the 1986 tax bill. I might point out that the increase in payroll taxes were the "Clinton surplus" which was borrowed money (Paying the VISA bill with the MasterCard!) and that even with both the Bush and Clinton tax increases that everyone's tax bills were still lower than before 1986. I might also point out that the surplus for Medicare will soon disappear and Social Security's about 2034 and then benefits will drop.

It's funny to see the Republicans scramble to cover for the posts they made earlier. The tax bills passed in 82 and 84, together, constituted the largest tax increase in peacetime, in US history. At no point in the history of America have Republican tax breaks done what Republicans said they'd do and today is no different.

As is always the case, there usually is a big lie hidden in the "real truth". Most of that 1982 "biggest tax hike ever" was the rescission of future lower tax brackets and not the actual raising of taxes.

There were increases of business fees and the reduction of business loophole though along with a gas tax increase. Where the real tax increase was in the increase of payroll taxes that all sides...
