No...no...no...!


Refunds are down. This is bad. Gosh. Stop using silly maths to try and prove your sexist racist homophobic point.

It appars liberals don't know what a refund is. Refunds have NOTHING to do with the amount of taxes you pay.

I you get a refund if you deduct MORE OUT OF YOUR CHECK than taxes owed.


Obama you owed 10000 in taxes you had 12,000 taken out the government sends you the 2000 you loaned them back WITHOUT INTEREST.

Trump same income you owe 7,200 in taxes, you had 8000 deducted so the government send you 800 back... your Refund is down but so are your taxes.

That is the average upper middle class income tax bill from 2016 and 2018

U.S. Federal Deficits, Presidents, and Congress

Article I
Article I describes the design of the legislative branch of US Government -- the Congress. Important ideas include the separation of powers between branches of government (checks and balances), the election of Senators and Representatives, the process by which laws are made, and the powers that Congress has.

**************
"... The most important implication of our analysis is that the influence the veto conveys is asymmetrical: it allows the president to restrain Congress when he prefers to appropriate less to an agency than Congress does; it does not provide him an effective means of extracting higher appropriations from Congress when he prefers to spend more than it does..."
