Thread: History says, "Keep the tax-cuts."

    History says, "Keep the tax-cuts."

    Who said it?

    [QUOTE]Our true choice is not between tax reduction, on the one hand, and the avoidance of large Federal deficits on the other. It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, so long as our national security needs keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenues to balance our budget just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits… In short, it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and [b]the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now.[/b]

    all other wars were paid for with lower average tax rates.

    our gov't spends more than it ever has on non-military expenses, it's still not a good time to cut taxes

    someone is going to have to pay these bills, Bush admin cutting taxes is just pushing the debt further down the line.

    The US Govt. is also collecting more taxes then at anytime in history. It is not just the war, it is an accumulation of spending and not getting results. No one is being held accountable!
