@ErnieReagan cut taxed and revenues to the Treasury "Doubled".Supply side economics started with JFK, not Reagan.Works every time
@Rockwell: Reagan raised taxes 11 times after his initial tax cuts and the
deficit grew exponentially under Reagan. His budget shenanigans are still being
paid for by tax payers. He was never fiscally responsible, far from it.
Utah must be giddy! It will be Utah's version of the Rapture. Bigger than
General Conference! The coming together of true religion. Oh, be still my
heart!@ Rockwell, whatever Reagan did, he was a huge spender and the
deficit skyrocketed. His first budget increased the annual debt by 300% over
Carter's last one. Literally tripled it.
Why isn't bill's wife and Bernie debating in Utah? After all they are
the two most qualified people in the country to be running. Resumes are
outstanding. My only questions is will bill's wife be wearing an orange
pantsuit come Inauguration Day? I just love her in orange.

"There has never been one example in history when tax rates were lowered
that tax revenues did not increase"Ok, fine. Then tell me why a
top tax rate of 39% (under Obama) is a job and economic killer, but a top tax
rate of 50% under Reagan is a boon?Keep in mind, Reagans tax rates
were applied to much lower income brackets. Reagans tax rates were HIGHER than
they are today by any honest measure.But then, who really wants an
Why are they imposing themselves on Utah? don't they realize that Utah

@cats. Show me mathematically how it is possible to cut taxes by 8.6 trillion
(Ted Cruz plan) over the next decade and then recover that money with economic
growth? In addition show me where Ted Cruz has proposed to cut spending to
balance the current deficit budget of 500 billion annually and then cut the 860
billion annually he would need to balance the budget to offset his tax cuts.Lets do the math. Cruz would cut revenue by 860 billion a year over ten
years essentially and you are arguing that with that tax cut we could grow the
economy enough to recover that revenue every year for ten years. Well if you put
860 billion back in the economy how much would that money have to grow in order
to tax it and recover that money?Taxes percentage of gdp currently
is 17.7 percent which means that a 860 billion tax cut would have to produce a
465 percent growth in order to recover that money through taxes. Is that return
realistic? No, which means Cruz would have to cut the budget by a third and
still cut more to cover the current deficit.
It is fitting that the old line Republican Party has come to Utah to die - to
Utah the reddest of red states.
Please can they be moderated by Ken Verdoia and James Dabakis?
Trump, believe it or not Is our Best Bet. Everyone else is holden to Donors and
corruption except Ben Carson. Trump will Lower taxes on the middle class, he
will lower business taxes, but red tape, and make America one of the greatest
countries to manufacture in because of newly negotiated trade deals he will make
in our favor or at least fair. Wages will go up, Replacing Obama Care will be
smart and better than Obama care while covering more people, costing the nation
less, costing you less through open market medical plans with competition across
state lines. Your medical costs will go down. Medical Savings Accounts will go
back to what they were (Tax Free)
If this debate comes about let us be courteous to Mr Trump and not as on this
forum. Can we see the Donald's temperance (doesn't smoke, drink or
take drugs) rather than his temper, and his industry (in this "Beehive
State") rather than occasional 'French'. Let us not be among
those who:"make a man an offender for a word and lay a snare
for him that reproveth....and turn aside the just for a thing of naught."

Personally, Provo or Ogden would be better choices I think rather than Liberal
Salt Lake City. Especially keep it off of the "U". I think this is
awesome in this election cycle and it is a great time to bring the candidates to
Utah. Sadly the work of Herbert might make this a state with a Democratic
Governor if he is the Republican Nominee, as I would vote Democrat rather than
for Herbert, and the same holds true for my legislator if it's the
incumbent. I love my Conservative Utah, but our Republicans in State Government
are not Conservative and they are corrupt! Can't wait to have the
opportunity to meet Donald Trump! He is my guy because I for one and Sick &
Tired of all the Corruption and out of touch representatives in Washington who
don't do the will of the people! I hope he fingers them all so we can get
back to being Constitutionalists! Every other candidate except Ben Carson is a
Washington Guy like it or not, and it will be the same games as usual.
I don't think Hillory and Bernie will come her for any event unless its a
lynch party. Bill couldn't even place third to G H W Bush and Ross Perot
@CatsSo if we cut taxes to 0 we'd have more revenue? If you look at
the revenue around the Bush tax cut years you'd see a dip in revenue the
next couple years and then it starts increasing from that lower level
afterwards. What are we seeing? A drop in revenue because tax cuts reduce
revenue, then population growth, inflation, and economic growth eventually bring
revenue up past the 2000 level. If you didn't have the Bush tax cuts
you'd have a couple hundred billion more in revenue each of those years
since it wouldn't have taken 6 years to get back to the revenue you were
taking in pre-cuts and you'd have population growth, inflation, and
economic development making it higher immediately.
Just because you live in Utah doesn't mean you have to vote Republican.
The vast majority doesn't vote at all. I wonder where an average person
can get tickets for this. I am sure it will be fun.
Our beloved state will be a fantastic format for the GOP Debate.
Utah is entering a hostage situation. It must vote republican. And, more and
more, it appears that means it must vote trump. A candidate for president who
can't put a sentence of more than ten words together and whose campaign
events are too 'raunchy' for prime time here. It will be
interesting to see how it plays out.
Glad to see this come to Utah! I would be interested in seeing a debate
centered on each person's plan to reduce the national debt.
Dear Shaun:There has never been one example in history when tax
rates were lowered that tax revenues did not increase. In other words, tax cuts
enhance economic growth which leads to more taxpayers and higher revenues. We
need to grow the pie rather than always trying to figure out how to redistribute
the pie. A bigger pie leads to more prosperity for all.
After Reagan cut taxes in 1981, he went on to pass two bills, in 1982 and 1984,
that combined to create the biggest tax increase ever enacted in peacetime.
Directly aimed at the 1%, it reversed most of the benefits of the original tax
legislation. Reagan understood the meaning of fair play. By now, most of the
'82 and '84 legislation has been thrown to the wayside, which is why
we have growing economic inequality.
Ted Cruz 2016. He is the only true principled Constitutionalist in the group. We
need a firm hand on bringing this country back. We need the steady hand of Ted
Where can I get tickets to this chuckle-fest?
Now that Bush is not in the running, I think we can pretty much tell who is
favored by the big government establishment clan.
This debate may be absolutely useless in determining the Republican presidential
nominee. With Donald Trump riding the wave after his big win in New Hampshire,
he could very well be the Republican presidential nominee by March 22nd. Jeb Bush has suspended his campaign after the South Carolina primary, so
he's out. Kasich and Carson are in the single digits. They may
only be holding on because the anti-Trump movement funded by the Republican
National Party isn't functioning too well. But they are effectively out of
the running and only continue to spend money.Rafael Cruz is
foundering as his evangelical message is not working with the people with it
would resonate the most. Utah is not his natural audience. And if he loses Texas
on March 1st, he will be gone.That leaves not-ready-for-prime-time
Marco Rubio (MarcoBot) who has minimal experience according to Jeb Bush and who
has aligned more with The Donald to appeal to the Republican disaffected and
angry. Maybe Rubio can go the distance. A lot of money will be thrown his way by
the SuperPACS and he may just pull this through to a contested convention.
The conservative leader Trump will be coronated in Utah.
And where are the clownsSend in the clownsDon't bother,
they're here. (On March 21st)Our grand country, once considered
a great experiment, is doomed. Come November, we will have a choice between
another Clinton and Trump. I will never vote for Clinton. I cannot vote for
Trump and keep my dinner down. What do I do? It is that old rock and a hard
space....the ages old conundrum of danged if I do.....you know what I mean.Perhaps we will have a third party candidate show up. Where are Ralph
Nader and Pat Paulson when you need them?
ShaunReagan decreased taxes and increased revenue.
Every republican presidential candidate tax cut plan will increase deficits. What is conservative about increasing deficits and adding to the
