[quote]Best economy ever before the Chinese virus wiped it out.[/quote] That's not true by nearly every metric. GDP growth hasn't topped 4%, wage growth is slightly above average at best, consumer confidence is good but not even close to all time highs. The trade defecit is actually worse than t...

re: Would You Support a "Living Wage"? - westerntigerfan
[quote]I’d support replacing all welfare and removal of minimum wage with universal income if that’s the offer. What would that accomplish? Where’s the difference?[/quote] It would get rid of the massive government entitlement bureaucracy. There would be no need for government housing progr...

re: People blaming McCain for 2008 loss....do you understand how bad the fundamentals were? - westerntigerfan
[quote]You can’t just totally disregard McCains action in running his own campaign and dismiss his loss as the result of a political tsunami attributable to Bush’s record or our country wanting to elect a black president.[/quote] John Mcain was not a great candidate, but these are two really big de...

re: Tell me how Romney is a great senate candidate - westerntigerfan
His predecessor represented everything that is wrong with politics. He was in the Senate for over 40 years, despite promising to only serve 2 terms when he first ran. Romney spent his life in the private sector. If the people of Utah consider him to be one of them, then that is their choice....

re: Give me your plan to lower federal spending by 100 billion/year - westerntigerfan
End baseline budgeting forever. Dissolve the departments of education, commerce, energy and the irs. Cut the epa budget in half. Cut 5% from every remaining department's budget. Enact massive welfare and entitlement reform. Bring as many service men and women home as possible, and close unnecessa...

re: So about this "slow rolling Trump's agenda" nonsense - westerntigerfan
The OP was asking for proof that congressional leadership is trying to thwart the Trump agenda. He offered 2 examples that show Ryan and McConnell working to help the President's agenda(which is 2 more than anyone else can offer to the contrary). You are right to point out that one of the examples...

[quote]Your only supporting evidence is judicial nominations, which the repubs are more than happy to take. [/quote] You've got it backwards. The burden of proof is on you to prove that the republican leadership is trying to thwart president Trumps agenda. The fact that there hasn't been any s...

re: Gingrich Just Said No Chance The Republicans Pass Tax Reform - westerntigerfan
[quote]No denying Reagan was great. But modern democrats are nothing like democrats in the 80s. While here may have been disagreements, they were at least rational back then. Their party is unhinged from reality today.[/quote] The modern democratic party is completely off the rails, I agree. But...

re: Gingrich Just Said No Chance The Republicans Pass Tax Reform - westerntigerfan
What really made Reagan exceptional was his ability to go around congress to get things done. He went straight to the American people made his case to them and told them to call their congressmen and demand tax reform. He didn't wait for congress to act, he didn't wait for them to craft their own ...

re: Let's just remember what started this whole thing - westerntigerfan
One of the main problems with Trump is that he is not an effective communicator. He makes bold statements with no nuance, and very little specificity. This leaves his statements open to inferences from both sides. Half will make negative inferences because they hate him, 20% or so will make positi...

re: End the mortgage interest deduction and lower rates - westerntigerfan
[quote]Better is replace income tax with an appropriately scaled revenue neutral national sales tax. Gets rid of the irs, generates tax revenue even from illegals, criminals who don't report income but still have to buy stuff.
