This has been going on for a long time. Trump is just the latest. Buying votes is expensive.

2. In the US the House writes tax and spend laws. The House has been controlled by Democrats for most of the past 100 years including the Reagan years but not the Clinton or second Obama years. If you have a tax and or spend problem try to remember this.

I've mentioned this before, but in the interests of stopping you from
continually making a fool of yourself, the House goes first. That
doesn't mean it writes the tax laws. The authors are a combination of
the House, Senate and the President (and lobbyists).

Speaking of fools, Dems make sport calling past deficit spending 'Reaganomics' and similar disparagements. No mention of 'authors are a combination'. How foolish is that?

I thought "Reaganomics" referred to the belief that tax cuts paid for
themselves.

I agree that Democrats share some of the responsibility for the deficits
created by tax cuts, particularly in 1981 when they voted in large
numbers for the legislation. However, very few did for Bush's tax cuts
in 2001 and no one did for Trump's in 2017.

To maintain a little perspective -- deficits are also a product of
spending -- not just tax cuts. Personally, I would like to see Trump
focus on spending.

That's true, but if the House doesn't like some spending or reduction of spending bill proposed by the president or Senate and lobbyists, they have the option of stopping it before it goes any farther.

And the Senate can stop it. And the President can stop it. The only
difference, which is a difference without a distinction, is when it is
stopped.
