Revenues don't support the class warfare smear of tax cuts for the rich. But hate and resentment directed at President Trump are the only thing Democrats have.

The GOP has not been the party of the rich for some time. At that "Some Time" started about November 2016.

If it makes you fell better to think that, fine.

But Ok here's a few questions.
Of the extra million + of people collecting unemployment checks, are more than 1% of them from the Upper Middle class and above.
Are the tax cuts making the unemployed middle classes and poor richer if they are already jobless and living off of less?
Are pockets the wealthy simply growing fatter than they were BEFORE the crisis with little to no hit to their personal finance?

seems to me the answers are clear and no amount trickle down and assertions of class bias change those fact.
the rich do not need a tax cut in the middle of a national financial crisis.
They are NOT in crisis, the working class and poor are.

It's not how I feel, it's a fact Federal tax revenues continued to grow after the Trump tax cuts. I have presented facts and your retort is class warfare emotional rhetoric.

Targeting the rich with exorbitant taxes doesn't produce projected revenues. NY state's millionaires tax brought only a small fraction of projected revenues. Businesses fled to other states with more reasonable tax rates. You didn't mention the increased revenue produced by tax cuts, care to try explaining why tax the rich is a good policy in the face of its failure to produce projected revenues?

Your comparisons don't make any sense.

People collecting unemployment checks hardly pay taxes, if at all. 70% of all tax revenues already come from the 1%'ers of our population. So any tax reduction would effectthem more than the lower wage earners and especially those on unemployment.

Revenues come from economic activity. Cutting taxes on the so called rich put their money to use creating economic activity. As AZrightwinger said, revenues in 2018/2019 grew. Remember, whether they make minimum wage or top notch salaries, wage earners give up 15% of their wages on every payday for SS. more wage earners, more revenues. More consumer spending, more revenues. Why is this hard to understand?

With all it's rich Movie stars and High Tech billionaires, California is going broke. Working people are leaving. In flyover country, economies are booming and the treasuries are swelling. The so called rich are putting people to work by creating jobs and opportunities with the money they do not have to send to the governments. And all boats rise.

Just as it did when Reagan lowered the rates.

How many times does this have to happen before the lesson is learned and remembered by the lefties?

Did i say anything about RAISING taxes on the rich?
the problem here is that there is a tax CUT for the rich during a national financial crisis/employment crisis.

btw stating the facts about it doesn't mean it's emotional.
I mean millions+ losing their jobs and watching their gov't representatives quickly and eagerly give tax cuts that primarily make the rich richer, while the same gov't legislators wring their hands drag their feet and try to do as little as possible to help the unemployed working class and poor might make a few clear eyed voters a bit emotional.

I'm just pointing it out. Not sure why you assume it's "emotional" talk on my part when really the facts are just dramatic.
But hey, sounds like you're OK with it.
thinks it's a GOOD thing. Less taxes on the yacht and vacation home will stimulate the economy fer sure. mm hmm.
fine.
we disagree.
