The GOP is selling this Tax Plan saying that it will ignite the economy, which will reduce unemployment, which will reduce the need for Gov't assistance. Furthermore the explosive growth in the economy will rapidly increase tax revenues. Heck we might even get a surplus going like we had during Clinton. BBBBBUUTTTT we also need to cut spending on benefits like SS and Medicare (that are paid for by employment taxes that surely will generate more revenues when the economy takes off). Seems that even the GOP don't believe in their own plan, thus the automatic triggers tax increases.

Couldn't the house democrats make that offering?
And couldn't congress also try to reduce spending instead of increasing taxes. Or in this case, preying on the entitlements. Why did congress raise the med ded from 7.5 to 10% both parties!
The extreme wealth distribution was started by the Democrats in 1913 and carried on through today. It was the Income Tax with its Internal Revenue Code. That code allows the rich both left and right to acquire billions while avoiding or reducing tax
lol @ brad in MOSCOW ~ If U are CORRECT, which you're not, then WHY on GODs Ailing Earth would any RATIONAL person CUT Corporate TAXEs??? Here's an IDEA, DEMs must Threaten a SHUTDOWN until "Corp LOOPHOLEs" R Abolished & WORKER's Taxes R CUT
AP back to dyslexia I see. wait and see how it works? SS Medicare are TAXES they are bad. It dn make them good just because some people need them. like a junkie needing more drugs. Why should people coming in the workforce today pay these taxes?
Let me ask you this Brad, you want to end it. What happens to all that money paid into it? Do you think they'll give it back to everybody who paid into with one lump sum? With interest of course. hahaahhahjejejejejejejejejlol
I already answered that question, you just don't read, or understand.
Acting like the court jester doesn't give you any valid argument.
'SS and Medicare are not Vested benefits"? I disagree. I paid into that system since I was 12 years old. The GOP is stealing from me what I paid into. That's wrong. How can you defend grand theft?
What facts are there behind your disagreement? Check out vesting as found in FERS and see if you find the same thing.
Both parties have been stealing from the Ponzi Tax scheme. These are TAXes, like Obamacare.
Please reread my comment. Thx
