When the other side is talking about giving illegal aliens free healthcare, a tax cut sounds really good.

It may sound good but like all those promises . . .  they never happened.

It happened for me.

Although I can understand how someone not paying taxes can be upset; probably wanted more free stuff.

In a pure debate I think you’re right. However, what trump does is not about topical reasoning.      What he does is so abnormal.  He is like a southpaw knockout puncher.   People hit the mat and never understand how it happened.  

Was Trump really the first candidate to figure out that Presidential debates were a spectacle akin to Wrestlemania, rather than a high school club competition? More people should have been clued in after Candy was chosen to moderate one.

The rich (yes, corporations got breaks) but in turn that keep jobs here, creates more jobs, pay raises, bonuses, etc. 

Treating the businesses with heavy hands (high taxes and overregulating) is never the solution. This is proven over time and time again. The same applies to small business.

I agree but my point was, he promised millions of voters a tax cut that never happened. :tiphat:

Are you talking about the second cut he promised fir the middle class? That hasn't happened yet there is so much going on, but I know his intentions are forthright.

As far as cuts, I know middle class people in my family that got tac cut in their weekly orvbi-weekly pay checks.

The wealthy are being attacked, but I know first hand we payed more in our federal taxes because the Trump new tax code limited what you can take on write-offs. So I know I did my part in paying more taxes...you're welcome.

Guess who is the next one to get Trump's shoe up his butt? Wilbur Ross for not getting the census question enacted. :munch:

We need to get to the Mueller hearing sooner rather than later. The lack of Russian collusion/Hoax talk has limited @Big_Dog posts to a snail's crawl. 

Should make a lot of you happy as h.ell.

Not for me, I need the comic relief even if it is unintended by you.

If it's any consolation, when we finally go . . . .  we'll never know about it after it happens. :wiggle:
