And as usual the gullible fall into the trap of the framing by far more able propagandists.
Those who advance “tax cuts” as a solution to every problem never actually advocate “tax cuts” without qualifications: they only and always advocate cutting only taxes on large incomes and capital gains and on corporate profits.
They never mention cutting taxes on consumption or employment, or any other regressive taxes, indeed many advocate raising them (such as with the deceptively named “FairTax”).
“Tax cuts” is a complete misdirection, because it is always a very selective choice of taxes that are to be cut.
Yawn. Repubs see tax cuts as the cure all; dems see the cure in spending
i know people say history repeats itself, but not always. i mean come on, give obama a chance to prove himself and to prove that his stimulus plan will actually work.
