Re: Tax plan raises taxes on liberal states and lowers them for the rest.

As a matter of fact it is greatly disputed whether this will cut taxes for anyone except the rich and many think it will create huge deficits. So, again, likely not even wrong.

But yet we still don't know if The Donald drinks Diet Coke or Coke Zero Sugar . . . The media aren't doing their job.
I heard CNN stands for Coke News Network. That is why they talk with fast baited breath so much of the time, and get so much wrong.

Re: Tax plan raises taxes on liberal states and lowers them for the rest.

When the Republicans crafted the tax reform bill, they had to ensure the budget deficit don't increase by more than $1.5 trillion over ten years. This means they must raise revenue somewhere. Better to raise it from the blue states than red states. They can't punish their voters, right? But as the ...

I would except to see a bumper sticker that says something like Economists do it with blocks and chains.
That still wouldn't be better than "economists do it with models". ;)
True. Why didn't someone tell me that while I was still in college? :lol:
