    Tax Policy Did Not Cause Income Inequality
    And it’s not the best solution, either

    The tax cut started 1/2/18, the tariffs came later. Even without the tariffs, GDP growth wasn't the 3% promised.

    Since the tax cut, GDP growth has steadily declined.

    Tax policy most definitely caused income inequality, and we can see that just in the fact that since 2009, the top 1% have doubled their wealth. Going back to 1980, the income gap becomes more stark.

    The Democrats had control of both houses when they passed a stimulus in 2009. It was claimed that unemployment would stay below 8% if it was passed.

    Only left wing hack sources say so. They can't be trusted just like you can't be trusted to do what you claim.

    Lol, so you want the rich to pay the same percentage of their income as the working class? How would that possibly be fair? What an absolutely retarded thing to say. When has that ever been a thing?

    You still haven't told us how the tax cuts are hurting the poor and working. Why can't you do that? Because you're just spewing talking points, that's why. You have no idea.
    Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent

    You didn't, retard. That's why I said you were confusing the two. Got any links to support your claim that the economy is shrinking? I didn't think so.

    Well, my sympathies go out to you, especially since you are going to face further depression with your undying faith in USC, but there is always next year

    Didn't say the tax cuts were the cause of slowdown, rather, they didn't produced the promised effect, the stimulus to the economy that Trump was hoping to achieve, and in the meantime, will be something future generations will pay for down the road

    Thank you for admitting the GOP are rubbing the faces of the poor and the workers in the mud.
