A dark day day in the annals of the USA. The republican tax bill is one of the most cynical and regressive ploys we've ever witnessed. Desperate wingers in Congress seem to have forgotten what happened the last time they gave corporations massive tax breaks (Bush years). Companies didn't use the savings to expand and create new jobs. The additional cash went into raising executive pay, buying back shares of their own stock, and scooping up other companies. It didn't grow the economy; in fact, it destroyed the economy. So why are they at it again? Itís because they are incapable of creative thought, all they have is their destructive ideology.

expectancy is about 82 years in Norway (just two years behind Japan, where people live the longest).

Norwegians enjoy a universal healthcare system, and all hospitals are publicly funded. The government spends about $9,715 per head annually on healthcare, the highest in the world

Exactly. The President is right. "The rich" no longer bury their wealth in their back yards in the form of gold coins. Because of the Government's inflation tax, the rich have the choice of investing their wealth in producing assets, or otherwise, have their accumulated wealth steadily decline in value. Most of the rich wisely choose the former. The result of that choice is the creation of jobs for us kids.

Jobs in the United States are a factor of increased consumer demand. Tax cuts which provides additional income in the purse of wage earners expands the US economy.

Tax cuts exclusively benefiting the wealthiest Americans has NEVER driven job creation or sustainable economic growth.

That's been proven with every Republican tax cut since Richard Nixon

$24.00 a week for a typical family of 4?

$682.00 a year in tax cuts doesn't balance against the $2200.00 a month in SALT tax ccredits loss.

People celebrating this scam are fools or don't own a damn thing they're paying real estate taxes on.

Exactly. That simplistic economic view is more appropriate for African ruled sub-Saharan Africa nations than in first world nations to where the Africans are fleeing. For example, Robert Mugabe, a full-blooded African who destroyed White ruled Rhodesia - then referred to as "the breadbasket of Africa" - is facing a military coup that threatens to violently remove him from power. The result of Mugabe implementing just such economic nonsense caused the total destruction not only of the previously first world economic structure of Rhodesia, but which resulted in causing his fellow Africans to starve, as well. The system in now what is called Zimbabwe goes far beyond the chaos and the disorder that is so characteristic of African ruled nations.

*(Note: One of the biggest supporters for the ending of White rule of Rhodesia and replacing it with the African Robert Mugabe was the California University system)*

How long does it take for a tax cut's effects to make a notable change in the GDP that can be directly attributed to the tax cut?

During Reagan and Bush 41, we "enjoyed" adding $3+

Trillion of National Debt. We've paid Interest upon

Interest on the $3+ Trillion in the 30 years since then.

While campaigning again Reagan, Bush 41 famously

called Reagan's "Supply Side Economics" "Fuzzy Math

and Voodoo Economics." Face it, folks. A rising tide

raises only yachts. CON's silly "Don't Tax, But Spend"

Policies help only the well-to-do and always bloat our

National Debt. But you CON Sheeple just don't care.

When will China stop buying our Debt? Maybe soon.

Democrats are up to their old tricks, trying to keep the American people poor and pissed off. Democrats despise successful government policies. They have no solutions of their own so they depend on poverty, chaos and hate to stay relevant.

Yes but the Republicans delivered tax cuts that were supposed to help boost our economy and the middle class. Over 8 years time, why did we have a crisis at all? The tax cuts didnít work? What happened to the great trickle down theory?
