......according to the Dems/Lefties/"Progressives", it's the government's income.
“Sen. Dorgan just said a vote for tax cuts is a vote to ‘reduce this country’s income.' To Democrats, it’s the government’s money. Not yours.”
"Really Senator Dorgan? Voting to give Americans back their own money was a vote to “reduce this country’s income with the biggest benefits going to the wealthiest Americans?”
Certainly cutting taxes reduces the governments’ income in a static calculation, but we also know that revenue into the treasury went up after those tax cuts.
The Democrats really do think it is their money."
Notice how Dipsquat Dorgan lies about the unemployment benefit extension?
As noted elsewhere, Republicans were more than willing to vote for the extension-- as long as funding from the failed stimulus paid for it, or funding from another program covered the cost.
