Re: Leftist ideology and economics
That's the old trickle down fantasy. No tax cut has ever paid for itself, including Trump’s. Instead it had zero effect on job growth and exploded the Federal deficit to almost a trillion dollars per year. That's the deficit Trump promised he would eliminate.

I know I'm wasting my time pointing out reality to you. But I couldn't let that whopper go

Re: Leftist ideology and economics
Nothing approaches even 50% of the total budget.

The only thing that takes nearly 50% of the discretionary spending budget is the military. Nothing else is larger.


The distribution doesn't change a lot from year to year.

Re: Christian fundamentalim is abhorrent
No True Scotsman fallacy.

quote:
No true Scotsman, or appeal to purity, is an informal fallacy in which one attempts to protect a universal generalization from counterexamples by changing the definition in an ad hoc fashion to exclude the counterexample.
