Finally, some common sense and some truth about how to improve our very sick
economy! Even Bill Clinton, with the help of a Republican congress understood
this fact and the result was a surplus in the treasury! Today, one candidate
wants to raise taxes (including but not limited to Obamacare) which flies in the
face of all economic reason and history. The other candidate knows about real
world economics and will solve our economic problems by doing what these
economists are telling us and lower taxes, especially capital gains taxes. If
you make it more difficult for investors to invest, we will have fewer
investors! Fewer investors mean fewer jobs! Fewer jobs mean fewer taxpayers! Few
taxpayers mean more deficits and more debt! Gee, isn’t that simple?
Even I can see that, and I'm not even an economist.
So to the first two posters: Whose taxes should be raised? Or, what taxes
should be raised?
