I'm not sure why I respond to your idiocy. Maybe it's because you and your party's zombie like lunacy is destroying the country. So here's but a couple of obvious points:<quoted text>
“So we don't need bridges? Or highways? Or airports? Or public water systems? Or sewer systems?” Are these the only parts of our economy?
“Please tell me how eliminating taxes will rebuild public highways.” Historically a reduction of tax rates for EVERYONE has caused economic growth and increases in revenues…
But you’re an egalitarian, so you don’t care about growth. Especially when you cite leftist articles that state “the lower tax rates in place since 2001 have had a strong impact on increasing income inequality in America.” THAT’S what you’re about. Government control over everyone’s income to make it EQUAL.
That’s not the American Dream.
That being said: Please tell me how raising taxes on the rich helps the middle-class deal with their tax hikes?
You won’t answer.
As for Education: What do we rank in the world? We produce people like you and you call that educated. What a joke. Then you’re only answer is “let’s give the failing system more money!”? So progressive!
Guess what, pal. ALL Americans are EQUAL and that equality is given to them by God not government.
Public infrastructure is not the only part of the economy. However, it is a major part of the economy which is almost completely at the mercy of government spending. That is what I was talking about, wasn't it genius?
As for tax cuts, no, they don't pay for themselves. You can do the most basic of research on the subject and you'd learn this. But you're not interested in the truth. You have a radical ideology, and you just ignore, or simply lie, about any fact that refutes your zealotry. So, to repeat, cutting taxes won't magically lead to bridges being built.
Regarding the terrible and growing income inequality in America, unlike you, who probably dreams of licking the shoes of the rich and powerful, I am opposed to a caste system. You know, one where the masses work and toil and struggle in subservience to the powerful and where all the benefits of their labor go to a tiny, exclusive elite. Meanwhile, everyone else suffers. I'd actually like to see more people prosper. For some inexplicable reason, you seem to prefer a state where most people have nothing and live in misery all so an infinitesimal number of aristocrats can live in grotesque opulence.
The richest 400 people in the US have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans COMBINED. Over the past 30 years, real GDP has more than DOUBLED while the inflation adjusted incomes of the richest 1% has risen by over 250%. At the same time, middle class incomes have actually been DECLINING. Unlike you, who cheers on the suffering and the insecurity of people, I wish that more people shared in American prosperity. When I hear of some corporation destroying middle class lives by shipping their jobs to china, exchanging working class wages for slave work, for the sole purpose of enriching the executive and trust fund class, I lament the destruction of those lives and jobs and the greed which caused. I imagine you love it. Some people like the human suffering others. I, for one, do not.
With respect to American education, I think we rank behind several other nations which also have government run education systems, although those countries have NATIONALLY run systems, you f.cking idiot.
Finally, in response to this bit of genius: "Please tell me how raising taxes on the rich helps the middle-class deal with their tax hikes?"
I have no f.cking idea what you're talking about. But I will simply say this: we have a government. It requires taxes to operate.
