What's your plan to raise enough funds to repay all the money George Bush borrowed from China to pay for the millionaire tax cuts? Seems fair to me that we would ask the people who benefited from the tax cuts to repay the loan -- with interest.


Repay it? Hell, dude, he wants another tax cut.

I think a lot of people forget that the Laffer Curve was a curve and not a straight line. At some point, tax cuts don't increase revenue, they decrease it.

I mean, if you're stuck with the mantra "Lower Taxes, Higher Revenue", the logical conclusion is that zero taxes will generate infinite revenue. I ain't holding my breath for that to happen.
