WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump promised tax cuts Friday that "will be the biggest in the history of our country," a day after the Senate passed a $4 trillion budget that lays the groundwork for Republicans' promised tax legislation.

Ah! It appears once again that when Republicans are in power, there is no concern for the actions they take causing an increase in the national debt.

Exactly TT. Once again, Republicans are trying to trot out the snake oil saleman, Arthur Laffer, and his bogus plan to cut yourself to prosperity. There is no evidence of the Laffer Curve ever actually working, but Republican will swear by it even if they don't really understand the complexities of it. At the state of the economy now, tax cuts will have a minimal impact on growth. We are at almost full employment which means there is really no room to grow unless we allow more immigrants in to work, which that's not flying with this administration.
...
All tax cuts will do, especially those being proposed, is help the rich get richer and provide very modest impact to those in the lower tiers. All the while, the deficit continues to grow and there will be no funds for infrastructure, healthcare coverage, or a number of domestic items. Of course, you can bet the military won't be touched. In fact, their spending will probably increase.
...
Just more reckless government from Republicans who have finally proven that given both houses of Congress and the White House are incapable of governing effectively.

Republicans must be stopped. Vote. ( We should think about impeachment in the context of what we would get having the despicable Pence replace the deplorable Trump. Pence is every bit as diabolical as Trump with a working knowledge of politics Trump does not possess. Better to interfere Trump and his agenda, rather than pass the agenda to a minion with gravitas and ability. [ And I would suspect Pence does already maneuver quietly in the hallways while diversions and distractions rally the headlines.] The lesser of the evils, ironically, is the vile, repulsive moron now in the Office.

Everything Trump does he claims that it is the biggest, best, greatest, etc. and nothing really ever comes of it.

Look, "progs", I'm sure your welfare checks and food stamps will continue apace. Meanwhile, those of us who are actually work will be enjoying fatter paychecks.

moz, if you truly believe things are going to get better for you in this so called tax cut, watch and see who really gets the gravy. If anyone gets a bigger cut than the middle class, you've been screwed again.

WGT, I think you are wrong. Trump is not the lesser evil no matter how bad Pence is because trump is seriously demented . Look at his face . It has no shape but looks like lumpy mashed potatoes. A look I have seen in students on their way to a mental break down . If Trump can't control the world, he will destroy it and no one wins a nuclear war. I recall the 1962 near catastrophe of the Cuban Missile Crisis. If you don't think it likely , think again. We are closer to calamity than then. Please realize that.

TT, could you please explain your comment on the middle class? Won't the middle class get a healthy tax cut? Please elaborate.
