This is what happens when the MSM and democrats don’t definitively debunk supply side economics. The easiest way to do it is look at the deficits which balloon with each tax cut. Reagan dropped the top rate from 70% to an astonishing 28%. Now check the debt number when Reagan left office. Same with Bush’s tax cuts and his accumulated deficits. Then compare with Clinton’s nominal tax increase and see the difference with his balance sheet.
If the republican’s claim that tax receipts would outweigh the tax cuts, the opposite would have happened in these scenarios. If this wasn’t enough proof, look at the overall picture going back to the mid 1930’s and an even stronger case can be made for taxing super wealth.
But in the complicit expediency of the press to constantly change the shiny mobile in our field of vision, they let major, incriminating stories about administrations run their course and then move on. And if you’re the White House, it’s a windfall.
Consider Clinton’s punitive welfare reform and letting banks gamble with your money when he revoked Glass Steagall. Huge stories, the latter of which rocked the world economy for years. The press should have constantly asked Bubba what the pressing need was to suddenly allow massive banks to become casinos, knowing full well if any large, coordinated fraud - like the housing bubble - went bust that the government would be left holding the bag.
Another less important but laughably obvious lie was Trump claiming 3-5 million voted illegally in the election. Not hundreds, or even thousands, but frickin’ millions. Voter fraud in any given election is never more than one hundred. If I was part of that useless press corps suckholing Sanders each day, I’d hound her until she confessed it was a lie - or they threw me out. But maintaining a coveted seat in the briefing room is more important than establishing truth.
To paraphrase Carlin, the press corps is just another big DC club which you ain’t in.
