GOP should threaten to repeal...

"Tax cuts grow the economy"

The biggest lie told to the American people like "Trickle down economy".

Why do you continue to believe that economic sleight of hand?
We have the record of quarterly Federal tax revenue online. Find them and read them. Compare them to the effective tax rate at the time.

Fiscal sanity has nothing to do with trickle down economy or any other economy for that matter.

Wealth of the 1% is fundamentally in stocks. Force the sale of stock and it crashes the value of the stock. Many not so wealthy have their money in that stock. You'd diminish a far larger chunk of wealth than even the 1% have if you did that. 50% of Federal tax filers pay no tax and many in fact receive money they never put into the system.

When are you going to start to pay your fair share?

The top 1% of Americans earn about 20% of all income in the U.S., but they pay nearly 40% of all federal income taxes.
The new data shows that the top 1 percent of earners (with incomes over $540,009) paid over 40 percent of all income taxes. ... The top 10 percent of earners bore responsibility for over 71 percent of all income taxes paid and the top 25 percent paid 87 percent of all income taxes.

Who is "we"?

You just showed your hand.

Stocks? You have no idea of what concsist of the working man and woman.

I'll call you a fascist and be write on.
 
Maybe you should not have piled so much hatred on Trump and his voters. You didn't expect something in kind?

Setting that aside. What's with calling the post, "anything but hatred of Democrats?" I don't see it.
If Democrats didn't exist, Republicans would stand for nothing. Republicans are dependent on Democrats to show them what to oppose.
Republicans are just a mindless opposition.

Well, that and not stomping up and down on the economy. :)
The worst economy in our history happened after republicans had been in control for 10 years...by 1933 we had 25% unemployment.

Reagan was in charge in 1981. Unemployment went from 7% to 10.8% in November 1982. It didn't return to 7% until 1986...

So the recession of 2007/2009 didn't happen or are you saying republicans weren't in control from 2001 to 2009?

The recession officially began in the summer of 2007. Unemployment hit 10%.

Some European countries tried to tax wealth. Didn't work and they had to forget about it or ruin their welfare-capitalist economies.

For the last 20 years when taxes were cut revenues did not fall they increased.
For the last 40 years, tax cuts increased deficits and the national debt. It was $900b in 1981. Like Cheney said...Reagan proved deficits don't matter.

If Democrats didn't exist this country would be at peace and thriving. There is nothing worse than globalist-communists (aka Democrats). A bunch of busy body scammers.

"Tax cuts grow the economy"

Because it's been repeated ad nauseum for decades since Reagan on rightwing talk radio.....and then picked up by rightwing cable. That's why stupid cons who eschew education and complain that women and minorities are taking their jobs believe if the wealthy have more, then there's a chance for them. Utter nonsense, but most effective example of brainwashing anti-govt cultists.
 
You make that claim, yet it wasn't until democrats shut down their economies that things got bad.

And apparently, considering we have 300 percent more infections under Biden, his stance is worse.
The economy would be in worse shape without the shutdowns.
And Republicans continually fail to present a reasonable alternative to Biden's approach to covid.

The Republican alternative is essentially letting the disease run freely through society without any form of mitigation. Which is dumb, unpopular, and unreasonable.

The red states bouncing back so quickly would prove you wrong.

And "letting the disease run freely" seems to be Biden's tactic, since his record is far worse than Trump's.
 
We had a republican president, remember? What he did was far more effective than what Biden is doing. And that was after giving Biden the gift of a vaccine.
No, it was a different pandemic and all. The delta variant is far more transmissible that the original coronavirus. It an apples to oranges comparison.
What would a Republican president do differently to stop the spread of covid?
If you can't answer the question directly you will see why Republicans can't win elections.

OMG any excuse to defend that incompetent old racist Biden. Democrats shut down their cities for the better part of a year, put millions out of work and destroyed the livelihood of thousands of business owners, and here we are, worse off than if we had just protected everyone over 60 and people with heart conditions, and let everyone else develop herd immunity.

But, just for the record, Biden allowing illegals to permeate the country carrying the MU variant isn't going to help.

And that is why Republicans won't win in 2022. Their plan to combat the virus still involve letting the disease run freely.
Voters don't want to get sick. Is that so hard to understand? Nobody wants to coughing fits, Nobody want to lose their sense of smell, Nobody wants covid. They need a plan to make it go away, not give it to everyone.
Most people understand that sick employees can shut down a business, most people understand that sick customers are bad for business. Most people understand that covid is bad for the economy and that mitigation is the lesser of two evils. The fastest way to fix the problem is face it head on. Not ignore, which is what Republicans want to do about covid.

The disease is running freely anyway, and that's with on and off mask mandates, hot and cold running closures, and more than half the country vaccinated.

Biden and the CDC are just fumbling around right now praying that people become immune.
