Don’t worry. The Republicans have already announced a slew of planned spending cuts (contravening Trump promises not to touch Medicaid). The malicious part of me hopes it passes. I think it is incredibly bad policy but myself and most of the people I know and care about will be largely unaffected. The demographics that will lose out neatly sync up with the demographics that voted for Trump. It might make me a bad person but reading articles and watching news reports crying over how horrible it is and how much harder life is now when they literally chose it will bring joy and laughter to my shriveled and blackened heart.

As to your CFR I believe these links will clear it up:

And finally, a short video that may help crystallize what I am saying:

 

 

"You realize how insane it is to push an article you have not read based on the headline as proof and then ask other people to look it up for you. That is incredibly lazy.'

I did read it. I linked it to my facebook and just checked. I can read it again. https://www.facebook.com/darren.zechiel/posts/10210533537125600?pnref=story. I did try to find the article from a different source with no luck. You're complaining about it so try and find it yourself.

"The demographics that will lose out neatly sync up with the demographics that voted for Trump.' - They'll get their comeuppance soon enough. The anti establishment movement won't last long. in fact, party bases formed primarily by protest don't last long. I voted for Trump, will I get hurt?

Now, my CFR please. I'll take it as a kindness for you to provide it. I'm only insisting on standards I've been forced to live by. It's the anti-establishment in me. We don't like elitism. Dungeons and Dragons and Dormammu wannabes don't count. Neither does the poor, depressing affects of global warming on cute mammals who carry around their tiny babies in fanny packs.

Seriously, if youre going to hang out here, please provide it. Thanks.

“I voted for Trump, will I get hurt?”

We are commanded to live by hope. ;) 

As to your CFR I have no idea what CFR you were taking about but I figured witchcraft, sexually suicidal marsupials, the daemon sultan, and Mario-based existential despair would cover just about any CFR and I am sure it covers yours.

If not, then there is something wrong with you.

I do have questions about the surveys and their respondents.  Do we have a statistically valid sample here, or is it a conveniently selected sample.  I have no idea.  Much as lawyers like to shop courtrooms looking for a judge who has a highest likelihood of ruling in their favor, I do wonder about the pool chosen by the journalist in this case.  And the only economists referenced in the survey appear to be academics at universities.  When you consider that decidedly leftist academics are quite overrepresented in our universities. Of course, leftists are perfectly capable of looking at tax plans in a completely objective way, right?

The other thing is the words chosen for the article's title, with "disastrous" being the operative word. When we have seen Democratic senators use extreme language about this bill the passed the senate, such as Nancy Pelosi claiming that it is the worst bill that has ever passed the senate, I wonder.  Has she never heard of the "Fugitive Slave Act"?  I don't think a tax bill could possibly be worse than the FSA.  And she is not the only one using such language.  So when the Forbes writer says "disastrous", what exactly does this mean?  Disastrous for whom?  The Democrats if the tax plan actually works and doesn't result in ruination?

The mainstream media is also going overboard on the bill.  I suggest a view of the video referenced below.  It's about Samantha Bee making funny over the Senate bill, and Steven Crowder addresses her claims and shows that she is completely misrepresenting the points of the bill she addresses.  The kind of misrepresentation is not made by just comedians, but by the politicians who are pearl-clutching because the senate bill, if signed into law, will destroy the county.  When President Kennedy proposed a tax plan back in the 1960s, a tax plan that provided significant cuts, what happened?  Did the country go to hell in a handbasket?  Did the government go into receivership because it didn't bring in enough taxes to keep it running?  Well no.  More tax income was the result, and why? Because the tax plan stimulated the economy and although it was taking a smaller percentage, the economic growth increased the tax base so much that it more than compensated for lower tax rates.  I'm not saying that tax cuts are a cure-all.  You can reduce the rates below the point where the tax receipts support the budget, but you can also raise them to the same point, because the policy causes a drag on the economy.  But who cares?  President Obama once admitted that yes, cutting taxes could cause an increase in tax receipts, but it was more important to be "fair" and soak the rich.  In other words, the Democrat party thinks that taxes exist to punish the rich for making more money than the rest of us.  And apparently funding the government is only secondary. I suppose making this point isn't "to the point" in this case, but I get frustrated over the failure to understand the purpose of government.

Anyway, have a look:
