You'll see a balanced budget, without excessive taxation ....
That has been tried it made the Budget deficts worse. it kills growth.

Remember Bill Clinton didn't get a real decease in the deficit UNTIL AFTER he cut taxes on the top 1% by ~45 with his capital gains tax cuts.

The worst period of deficit spending followed the GWH Bush tax INCREASES. Until the Obama era Deficits

Don't expect socialists, communists and progressives to understand and/or admit why gouging the "rich" is destructive to a nation's growth and prosperity.

Pretty cool trick. Spend all of the this nation’s workers money out of the Social Security Trust Fund leaving only IOU’s behind, then pass a balanced budget amendment essentially telling those workers to grow screw themselves in old age. YOU WILL NEVER LIVE TO SEE THAT DAY PINHEAD !!!!!

The real trick was how socialists, communists and progressives in government got the Social Security Act passed, which was then used to confiscate part of poor working people's paychecks and make them dependent upon government.

There is no better way to weaken, destroy and subjugate a prosperous and freedom loving country than by importing the world’s poverty stricken populations into that country.

Gouging the RICH??? Yeah. That must be the reason that never before in the history of this nation has the 1% thrived like it does now.

In 2017 the world's 1% grabbed 82% of all the wealth created in 2017.

Isn't it time to start being concerned about the 99%??

"Grabbed 82% of al the wealth"?


When I had my business in New York, I didn't grab any wealth. I and my employees created and earned wealth.

You have proven you don't understand how wealth is created. But you do know and advocate how to confiscate and redistribute wealth from those who create it with your socialist income tax.


JWK



The unavoidable truth is, our Fifth Column democrat political leaders’ plan for “free” college tuition will be paid for by confiscating and redistributing the paychecks of millions of college graduates who worked for and paid their own way through college and are now trying to finance their own economic needs.

Capital Gains hammered me. Capital Gains is unfair by any description. To avoid capital gains shun the stock market.

edit: I hate the term Cost Basis.
