    Whether revenues rise or fall as the result of a tax cut is really immaterial as far as there being a “tax cut for the rich” is concerned. My position has always been that only 1/3 of the US population pays taxes anyway. (the middle third pays 2% of all taxes). So those in the top third are considered “rich”. Thus if you are going to have a tax cut, whose taxes will be cut? THOSE WHO PAY TAXES!! The third at the top. The “rich”. the whole leftist argument of tax cuts for the rich is stupid.

    All taxes are extortion and should be eliminated. The belief that so many things cannot be done except at the 'rule' of government allows the governing force to be used against all of its citizens. All people do pay taxes whether through higher prices, inflation (correct term; devaluation) or direct confiscation. We are operating with a system that is debt that cannot be repaid. If it were all currency in circulation would be extinguished from existence and the Federal Reserve would still have a claim for its interest on non-money.

      "Tax Lies For The Gullible"

    There are good reasons not to want to tax people, but the notion that tax cuts paradoxically result in more gov't revenues is silly. We can debate if GDP could grow a percent more ore less based on tax policy. And that's huge over time. But changing tax policy WILL NOT cause GDP to double or halve.
