  1. Hi John,
    This article is misleading. Tax revenues have gone down despite the tax cuts. It’s not a direct result of tax cuts. There are way too many factors that determine how much revenue is actually generated in tax money besides tax cuts. Tax cuts will always stimulate an economy, the question is how much and what are the other multitude of factors that get in the way of a growing economy.

    1. I didn’t write the article, so I can’t defend the specifics. However, “Tax cuts will always stimulate the economy,” is a pretty dubious statement in itself. In most cases, tax cuts bring higher debt. So, they may stimulate economic “activity,” but in terms of truly making our economic situation better, not so much.

      Nevertheless, thanks for your comment, and thanks for reading!
