  •  Then why are they fighting the tax increases? (3+ / 0-)

    If the tax increases won't raise actual taxes paid by the uber-rich, then why are they fighting them?  In fact, if the wealthy were already avoiding taxes, then cutting rates had no effect either, so the whole trickle-down economics of tax cuts is an illusion.  So, are republicans saying they sold the country a bill of goods when they promised tax cuts would spur economic growth, while knowing full-well that the beneficiaries were already avoiding paying taxes so the cuts were meaningless?  Are they actually arguing their economic theory is a fraud?

    and their contempt for the Latin schools was applauded by Theodoric himself, who gratified their prejudices, or his own, by declaring that the child who had trembled at a rod would never dare to look upon a sword.
