    Flash, a mere 1% change in rev-GDP ratio is the equivalent of $200B, or 1/5 of our current tax cut-fueled deficit.

    The rev-GDP rate changes you showed before varied anywhere between 1-5% ($200B -...

    California has the world's sixth largest economy and a budget surplus.

    The poverty measurement you're using counts middle class folks who get state aid as below the poverty line.

    More jobs...

    So wait a second, Flash. Are you now saying that not all billionaires came about their wealth legitimately, fairly, or legally? You said billionaires earned their wealth honestly.

    So now comes...

    You can't make an economic argument against raising their taxes to expand benefits, so you make an emotional one instead.

    You should just vote for Trump since you're echoing all his talking points.

    Right, just like I said...it counts those in the middle class who get state breaks on things like tuition as poverty.

    So according to this measurement, a family of four that grosses $80K a year in...

    Conservatives set low bars because they struggle to reach them.

    Freedom of speech doesn't insulate you from the consequences of that speech.
  9. US Budget Deficit tops $1T first 11 months of FY

    I'm old enough to remember when Conservatives stapled teabags to their faces over trillion-dollar deficits.

    Drumpf promised to get rid of the deficit in 8 years. But it just topped $1 trillion for...

    NO! Flash is lying here. The poverty rate Flash is referring to is a new poverty rate measurement that didn't start until a few years ago, and considers anyone who gets any kind of financial...
  12. Like I said; you cannot make an economic argument...

    Like I said; you cannot make an economic argument against anything I'm proposing. Instead, the arguments you make are emotional ones. You do that for two reasons:

    1) You're lazy as fuck

    2)...
  13. LOL! I'm not sure if that was meant to be...

    LOL!

    I'm not sure if that was meant to be parody or if it's something you truly believe, but to think that billionaires like Trump or the Sacklers earned their money honestly is either an...
  14. Economically, those proposals make all the sense...

    Economically, those proposals make all the sense in the world, and you cannot and will not make an economic argument against them; which is why you stick with the emotional Republican talking points...
  15. We can afford all of that rather simply; remove...

    We can afford all of that rather simply; remove the cap on taxable SS income, and tax the wealthy to pay for health care.

    You're the one who takes an emotional stand on this, rather than an...
  16. NO! It was because tax cuts reduced revenues,...

    NO! It was because tax cuts reduced revenues, which created deficits.

    You never, ever, ever want to admit that. And it's obvious why; if you admit tax cuts reduce revenues, you admit that they...

    Yes, you did say that...then you started whittling that down when you realized it wasn't true or accurate.

    My point is that you do that constantly with everything; you start off saying one thing,...

    So on top of being a piece of shit, you're also functionally illiterate.

    I'm not lying about the numbers at all.

    Here's the link for quarterly.

    Here's the link for annual.

    You can find these numbers anywhere, so there's no excuse for you.

    That is where you started, asshole.

    Then you began adding in the qualifiers about "income groups" or whatever.

    You do that all the time...you start off by saying something vague and broad that...

    Why?

    There is no economic argument you can make against it.

    The only argument you are going to make is one of "fairness", but I would say what's fair about billionaires? Nothing.

  23. Forgiving student debt is paid for by wealth...

    Forgiving student debt is paid for by wealth taxes and taxes on financial transactions. Why shouldn't the wealthy pay for that? They didn't earn their billions.

    Tax cuts are never paid for and...

    Flash, why are you being deliberately obtuse? Is this an act? Are you deliberately acting this way because you think it's funny? There's nothing about this that is genuine.

    NO!

    Not if they have to fork out more out of pocket for health care or education because of funding cuts that came by way of deficits that were the result of tax cuts.

    That's why household debt...
