With congressional consent, yes. Problem is, trump thinks he is above the other branches of govt. He isn't. Nobody trusts him and Pelosi is going to make his life even more miserable. 2019 is starting out good.

Without taxation, we're not a great Country.  Our differences revolve around how much taxation is the right taxation.  I say check the historical results.  When you compare this nation to all others, looks like we're doing a pretty good job.

Just like that $50 the robber stole out of my car.  That is not his money, he is a thief.

If the government breaks into your car and takes it, you are correct. If the IRS decides you owe it.........you're screwed. Unless you can get the court system to over rule them. Remember, equal power, not centralized with the presidency.

What makes America great is our representative system of government and the American spirit of inginuity that was and is fueled by a capitalist system of government.

Anyone that has not studied and does not understand this does not realize what our founding fathers risked their lives for.

Our founding fathers understood the role of taxation. Unfortunately, some on the Right don’t.

Income taxes were not even formed until 1913.  Only a moron would think our founders were involved in anything so stupid.   They were really for supporting our military during WW1 and were expected to go back to zero after the war effort.  Unfortunately WWII, then Korea, and on and on and we are now stuck with income taxes.

“Conservatives always quote one snippet from Washington where he says that taxes are always “inconvenient and unpleasant.” Strangely, they never quote the whole passage, which shows Washington’s views in context. He said this in his farewell address (emphasis mine):

To facilitate to them the performance of their duty, it is essential that you should practically bear in mind that towards the payment of debts there must be revenue; that to have revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant; that the intrinsic embarrassment, inseparable from the selection of the proper objects (which is always a choice of difficulties), ought to be a decisive motive for a candid construction of the conduct of the government in making it, and for a spirit of acquiescence in the measures for obtaining revenue, which the public exigencies may at any time dictate.”

I bet a majority of people think there has always been an income tax. If the Federal government only concerned itself with its duties under the Constitution there would be almost no need for taxes.

It is amazing how so few people know this............Eisenhower warned us about this happening.........That warning is available to anyone wanting to hear his speech............

But then, most folks believe the Fed bank is a nationalized Government institution............They have no idea it's just a few filthy-rich families who aren't, and can't be, held accountable for anything they do.............They cannot be audited............These families also own the military-ordinance factories which make bombs, weapons and ammunition............And, they make sure there's a use for their products...........

Who's arguing against our representative government or ingenuity (note the spelling)? Nobody. 

Right-wingers who make sweeping anti-tax statements just prove what blockheads they are. Taxes are vital to a well-functioning government and country. They promote stability. Taxes pay for important government services and programs--at the federal, state and local level. Many if not most dysfunctional countries have weak tax systems---and we're headed in the same direction unless we raise taxes on the wealthy and beef up the IRS again to go after high-income tax cheats--neither of which conservative politicians want to do because they are A-OK with corruption and crony capitalism.

And this took a big jump under the previous administration.


Something like 8 of the richest 12 counties are DC suburbs. The largest employer in DC does not manufacture or generate a single dollar in revenue. The largeness and waste in government is something that has been ignored by both parties.

Ha, ha, ha: the rubes are funny:

Trump is losing the support of the Wall Street Journal, whose right-wing editorial page seems to have had enough of his treasonous denigration of America's longtime allies and coziness with Vlad Putin. After hearing Trump's array of stupid comments yesterday in the White House briefing room, particularly about Afghanistan, the WSJ lashed out at the feckless Russian mole who is our Potus:

Wall Street Journal Edit Page Breaks With Trump, Trashes Afghanistan Mockery as ‘Slander’

The Wall Street Journal’s Editorial Board has lashed out, saying it cannot ‘recall a more absurd misstatement of history by an American president.’


From The Daily Beast


The home of “free people, free markets” apparently hit a limit.

In a cutting commentary that breaks with its full-bore support of the Trump White House, The Wall Street Journal’s Editorial Boardcondemned the president’s comments about Afghanistan and Russia at a televised Cabinet meeting this week, calling them “absurd” and a “slander.”

Among his eye-opening Wednesday statements, Trump ridiculed other nations’ commitment to fight alongside U.S. troops following the attack on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

“They tell me a hundred times,” Trump said. “‘Oh, we sent you soldiers. We sent you soldiers.’”

The Journal’s editorial called Trump’s mocking words “a slander against every ally that has supported the U.S. effort in Afghanistan with troops who fought and often died.” In fact, the U.K. sent thousands of soldiers to the country between 2001 and 2014 and has—to date—lost more than 450 people in the fighting in Afghanistan.

Trump also said, during that meeting, that “the reason Russia was in Afghanistan [in 1979] was because terrorists were going into Russia” and that “they were right to be there.”

In response, the opinion piece said it could not “recall a more absurd misstatement of history by an American president” and noted that the Soviet Union, in fact, invaded Afghanistan “to prop up a fellow communist government.”

 

The invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 was condemned throughout the world, including by the United States. Both Presidents Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter provided aid to Afghan insurgents in their resistance to the Soviet Army. The fighting lasted until 1989.

 President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan said in a statement on Thursday, “After the invasion by the Soviet Union, all presidents of America not only denounced this invasion but remained supporters of this holy jihad of the Afghans.”

The WSJ piece continued: “The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan was a defining event in the Cold War, making clear to all serious people the reality of the communist Kremlin’s threat.”

The right-leaning editorial board of the Journal, which is owned by the Trump-friendly Rupert Murdoch, has rarely broken from its tendency to throw in with the president’s policy decisions and increasingly divisive public statements.

“Mr. Trump’s cracked history can’t alter that reality,” the op-ed concluded.

End Story

Trump's popular alright...with full-fledged idiots. Take a bow, fellas.

We don't have high taxes. In fact, rural Americans generally have low taxes, and U.S. taxes in general are low compared to other western nations. Only backwoods types who still think of the IRS as the "revenuer" complain about taxes. A big reason why the U.S. infrastructure is in such bad shape is that GOP legislatures in many states don't want to raise taxes (such as the gas tax) to pay for road and bridge improvements.

Of course some taxes are necessary, which is why I said "high taxes".

Can you provide any studies that show infrastructure in GOP led states is any worse than in states where dems are in control?  Your argument may have some validity at that point.

Our allies have been glad handing us way to much.  They say they will commit to a defense allaince in NATO, then when they don't pay their own way demand the US make up the difference.

It is great to have allies.  But to have allies that bend you over and rape you, no thanks.  

Trump is direct and forthright on these matters as that is the only possible way we are ever going to create change on these matters.  Past administrations have spent more than 40 years talking nice to the French or other allies about living up to their commitments.  They just don't do it, unless you call them out directly for it.  It is unfortunate.

First Real US Household Income Gain Since 2000

"The median household income hit an all-time high of $63,554 in November 2018, based on an analysis of the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey by Sentier Research. The real, after-inflation, median household income was 3.2 percent above the $61,612 for November 2017; up 5.5 percent above the $60,231 in December 2007; up 15.4 percent from $55,083 in June 2011; and 4.3 percent higher than January 2000."

Despite almost two decades of income stagnation for 99 percent of Americans, establishment economists on the left and the right have viciously attacked the Trump Administration’s ‘Make America Great Again’ (MAGA) policies for cutting taxes, deregulating the economy, maximizing oil and gas production, ending foreign entanglements, renegotiating blatantly unfair trade deals, and slapping China with tariffs.

Now that it’s been shown taxation is necessary to make a great Country, the argument turns in a different direction.
