      Bill, Will the new Health-Care bill have any effect on the tax increases that will take place if the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire?

      another Heritage Research Report…ahem.

      I have a few questions…

      #1- Will the Bush Tax Cuts not add over 2.5 Trillion to the National Debt by 2014? If they extend, will they not add over 3 Trillion to the National Debt over the next ten years?

      #2- Why are Corporations and Business's currently recording record profits and at the same time, not hiring?

      #3- Do we have have any direct evidence of "Trickle Down" "Supply Side" "Reagonomics" "Vodoo Economics"?

      #4- Will extending the Tax Cuts automatically start helping the economy even though they have been in effect for over 8 years now?

      Zack, take a look at the chat above. Your questions were answered during the live chat.

      And you expect me to take Heritage Research as credible?

      Where are you getting your facts?, aside from "Heritage Research" that seems to come out of thin air. You can't hyperlink other Heritage Blogs and use that for credible evidence. It's like feeding "talking points" off of more "talking points"

      Besides, none of the questions I asked were directly covered in the blog.

      Anybody willing to give a good answer to each of my 4 questions?

      This "trickle down" theory is just that, a "theory"

      I just hope people are not taking Blog's like this for factual evidence.

      Aside from personal attacks against me and "talking points" can somone give me DIRECT evidence to how these Bush Tax Cuts actually helped the economy and how they will NOT add trillions to our National Debt?

      yea, that's what i thought.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
