Every President leads over a growing economy with growing tax revenues.  Unfortunately, there are occasional and tragic events resulting in a near complete collapse before we start growing again.  A President can't stop an economy from growing but he/she can contribute to a huge hiccup.

CBO boosts US job growth projections by 2.6 million, directly attributing 1.1 million of that number to the #TaxReform law that was opposed by every Democrat in Congress.

The CBO projects there will be 156.8 million jobs in America in ten years.  They say it would have been 155.7 million jobs without the tax cuts.  If we put money into the hands of consumers, there's no doubt the economy receives a boost.  What we don't know for certain is the harmful effects of the added debt, particularly on those Americans to follow.  We saw in 2008 how fast those jobs can disappear in a recession.  In addition, one can only guess what effects the future huge interest debt will have on jobs and/or quality of life for those who inherit it.

If we promise our children an extra grand a month, we might be better able to predict their improved position down the road.  At the same time, it might be tougher to predict our own financial position.

I don't want to borrow money from future generations to pay for my quality of life.  Today's society should pay it's own way.  We were there in 1999 and we should have remained that way.  Instead we gave ourselves tax cuts, fought wars, invested in defense, and paid the bill with other peoples money.  We should have never allowed a tax cut unless it created no growth in the deficit.  We should have raised the funds to fight our own wars.  The GOP thought if the revenue wasn't there, spending would disappear too.  They were completely wrong and I think they knew they would be wrong.

I don't want to pay for current generations to breed and not be able to feed, I don't want to pay people not to work, so I guess we can't always get what we want.  Join the crowd Duaine, just quit whining about it so much

Do you ever not lie Dewey. CBO said revised upward 2..6 million and you come here with your bull schit numbers showing only 1.1 million.
You are such a pathetic weak old man. All you have in your life is coming here posting one lie after another to try and cover up the failure of your party and their policies.

At the right price. If Walmart benefits to the tune of 50 billion in tax cuts and adds jobs and bonuses with 1 billion of the savings, is it good? Is that the intent? Don't attack the numbers, they are metaphorical.

Where do you think all that metaphorical money went?

Why not let companies keep some of their money, so they can invest and grow their operation, hire people, build a bigger/stronger company?

As I posted awhile back, CBO once forecast $3.53 Trillion revenue in 2018 which would be a 6.3% increase over 2017.  Then came the tax cuts and CBO changed the forecast to $3.34 Trillion due to a much smaller increase in revenue of less than 1%.  Through July, revenue has gone up less than 1% from the ten month similar period of time in 2017 and the end of year revenue looks like it will match their April forecast of $3.4 Trillion.  So much for bad CBO estimates.  Thre are still two months to go.  Oh yeah, the less than 1% growth in revenue will still set a record so the Right can continue to say "record tax revenues".  They'll ignore the fact revenue would have been a couple hundred billion more if there were no tax cuts.  Population growth and inflation make revenue increases almost impossible to avoid.

If I remember right, normal growth under a Democrat runs about 6% in annual revenue increase and 3-4% in annual spending increase.  The GOP almost always manages a lower average revenue increase and higher annual spending increase.  This year won't be any different.

When a Democrat is in office, Congress blocks most requests for any added spending.  Therefore, budget rises 3.5-5% annually.  When a Republican is in office, he demands more military spending.  Congress says can't have it without more spending on Americans for much needed services.  GOP President says do it already.  Therefore, budget rises 5-6.5% annually.  Back and forth we go.  Maybe $50-100 billion more in voluntary spending during one Administration versus almost no extra spending in the next. 

Revenue is a different story.  It's the attack on revenue with tax cuts after tax cuts that sets us back and grows our deficit.  We continuously reduce the expected tax revenue and then once again have to grow our way out of a hole.  In the meantime, we increase the deficit and add to debt.

For example, in June of 2017, CBO projected $3.53T and $3.69T revenue in 2018 and 2019.  In 2017, Fed revenue was $3.315T.

After changes in our tax law, GOP tax cuts, the CBO has revised it's projection a few days ago and now projects revenue of $3.34T and $3.49T in 2018 and 2019.  It's now going to be much lower.

The Right will spin these numbers as record tax revenues.  That's true but they're now much lower than what the record revenues would have been in a growing economy with a growing population.  We'll end up with another $400 billion added to deficits that are already too large.  This attack on revenue is far more damaging than the back and forth change in spending growth we find when President is Democrat or Republican.

CBO June 2017 pg 13 - https://www.cbo.gov/system/files/115th-congress-2017-2018/reports/52801-june2017outlook.pdf

CBO April 2018 pg 67 - https://www.cbo.gov/system/files/115th-congress-2017-2018/reports/53651-outlook.pdf

They should cut their spending drastically.  That would reduce the need to borrow.

Dewey, how about a massive data dump list of ANY F'ing Federal handout agency you are willing to cut. No you can't say cut defense spending, we just spent a butt load of money to correct Obama's ineptness. Here, I will get you started, and you can jump right in.

1: an across the board spending cut of 10% of ALL Federal agencies. You talk about government spending and waste, this is a start.
2: eliminate all social services to non citizens.
3: eliminate the department of education and return control of education to the states as was intended.
4: insure that every veteran in our nation can walk into any medical facility to see a doctor and receive treatment within 3-5 days. In other  words, get rid of the VA and it's BS administrative costs, and let the private sector lower costs and eliminate another bloated POS agency.
5: Deport all illegal aliens as quickly as possible. Get them the F off our social networks. We aren't responsible for the HC of all of Mexico and Central America, nor any other Shi!thole nation. Let their country provide for THEIR citizens. We will take care of the lessor of ours, and have a lot of money available when all of the F'ing illegals are not sucking benefits away from the very Americans that deserve our help and aid.
6: I will continue my diatribe against you socialist POS activist after I return tomorrow after dove hunting and commiserating with fellow Americans that actually like our nation, and despise Socialist POS like you.

The point of the update was to show just how accurate the CBO was in their first year projection. This bi-partisan group is charged with giving Americans a fair picture of how legislation affects our budget. When the Right says dismiss the CBO projections and expect revenues to rise by even greater percentages thanks to these tax cuts, it’s imperative we all know their’s is a biased prediction of anticipated results. If the Left failed at a prediction like this, Rightists would label it a lie.

No reason to dismiss the CBO score.  It is clear we are spending too much and creating a debt situation.  Giving tax payers back some of their hard earned money still makes sense.
