    The economy is percolating again! The tax cuts issued by Trump to businesses / corporations have stimulated the economy. It is clearly apparent they have helped America increase productivity and hiring. The unemployment level is lower and thousands have gotten off food stamps and welfare.

    Unfortunately, the tax cuts issued by Trump will last for only several years, thanks to the Trump resisters in his own Party!!!!


    Q. Is there something wrong with stimulating the economy with tax cuts?

    It always works!

      Yes, there is something wrong with doing that, for the amount of taxes collected is nearly always reduced and politicians have yet to find a method of cutting their greed for money.  This leaves the country borrowing more.

      I only want to say; per Section 8.1 of the U.S. Constitution "The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;" and means any tax cut or hike is a violation of their oaths of office making them to have committed perjury.

        "...and means any tax cut or hike is a violation of their oaths of office making them to have committed perjury."

        And this means any tax cut OR hike is a violation.
        Politician make oaths not to raise or lower taxes.

        Can you explain what your message is here?

        That Trump has committed perjury?
        How so, if Congress approved?
        How so, if the recent tax cuts corrected the excessive and punitive taxation that occurred during the previous administration?

          When such taxes aren't cut equally nation wide to everyone then it is a violation of the Constitution is what the phrase "but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States" mean. Aren't the people taxed? If The People's taxes [not the unconstitutional "corporations are people" taxes said by SCOTUS] are not cut the percentage corporations' are it violate the constitution and is impeachable.

            Does the constitution then require that all people - young, old, able-bodied, infirm, able or not - pay the same amount of dollars in taxes?  The infant in arms, the bed ridden dementia patient and the football star?

              Article 8.1 is posted above, see what "all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States" say for yourself.  Doesn't uniformed mean in creased and decrease at any time any one is?

                It also means that every person still alive shall pay the same at all times, whether increased, decreased or left alone. 

                You didn't respond to the question.

                  If you are not work working, aren't allowed to work because the unconstitutional "war on drugs" trapped you [and in prison you were a slave per unconstitutional Amendment 13], too young to be employed, too feeble to work and other such conditions one would not be require to pay from something they don't have; Social Security retirement we pay into being the exception.

    Hi Kathryn,
    Yeah,tax cuts reduce the amount available for the government to spend on infrastructure and other projects.It also reduces the overall amount of money available.Some people will become lazier if taxes are cut.
