tarheelio icon NEW: I am not defending the tax cut or Trump, but your claim is false. Since 2007 the deficit has decreased twice.

o NEW: What on earth are you talking about? A simple web search will reveal that you are wrong, go look up the federal deficit in the recent past. The deficit went down every year from 2011 to 2015. This is America’s problem, its misinformed people. (nm)

pangloss icon NEW: You write, "I don't recall people here getting upset". A lot of the tea party noise was fueled by the stimulus and bailouts. I don't remember it fouling things here though. (nm)

Rocker Ute icon NEW: No, I'm speaking about people here - yes there were plenty on the right upset about the ballooning deficit under Obama - now of course silent. Conversely, not a lot of people upset at Obama for the deficit, but apparently have grown concerned now.

o NEW: I inadvertently redsfsrred your post when I meant to hit reply. Any corruption and waste is small potatoes compared to what trump has done

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: Yep. I would trade in my small tax cut (substantially less than the 4 grand promised) for no growth in the debt (which was massive growth). (nm)

mokus icon NEW: I'm paying more, and I'm in a better position than I was last year. And that is all I see on FB is people complaining about paying more taxes. (nm)
