• Once Trumps budget passes and slashes billions from food stamps, housing subsidies, and healthcare you know America will become poorer right?

    Best answer: I don't think that our country will become poorer due to this budget. However, I do think our nation will become poorer due to too many American's doing drugs and not able to work due to this. Why should we allow these parasites to continue sponging off of those of us who work for a living and strive to... show more

However, I do think our nation will become poorer due to too many American's doing drugs and not able to work due to this. Why should we allow these parasites to continue sponging off of those of us who work for a living and strive to get ahead. Have any of you ever heard the term self sustaining? That is described as being able to provide for yourselves rather to rely for government welfare programs to take care of you. Trump is working for the best of America and Americans. We need to work together as a team in order to support him.

  • Is it okay that $16 trillion was used to bail out the banks and they are all still "too big to fail"?

    Best answer: It's not okay. Obama changed the bail out from a gift to a loan, and we got most of it back. But the thing is, the banks were not forced to split up, so they're still Too Big to Fail, meaning that this will happen again, inevitably, just a matter of time. Just goes to show you, there's not all that... show more

    But the thing is, the banks were not forced to split up, so they're still Too Big to Fail, meaning that this will happen again, inevitably, just a matter of time.

    Just goes to show you, there's not all that much difference between Republicans and Democrats. A REAL president would have kicked butt, people would have gone to jail. the banks and brokerage and insurance companies would have been broken up into smaller companies that weren't immune to their own mismanagement. 'Too Big to Fail' is just another kind of socialism. Republicans say they HATE socialism but what they really mean is that success is capitalized but failure is socialized.

  • Why Do Republicans Always Like To Ruin Perfectly Good Economies?

    Best answer: Republicans always like to take advantage of surpluses left by democrats and pad their pockets or pork projects. When the tax bill causes interest rates to rise fast like under Reagan they will blame Trump's tax problems on others, spend spend spend all they know.

  • I lost all my retirement yesterday when the stock market crashed and Trump is to blame! Can I sue him for this?

    Best answer: Trump has no control over the market, hasn't changed any of the regulation that Obama put in place, his influence is limited to speculation about what policies he will put into place. Trust me, this not so little bounce is a warning sign, the markets have been artificially propped up for the last decade. We are... show more
    Best answer: Trump has no control over the market, hasn't changed any of the regulation that Obama put in place, his influence is limited to speculation about what policies he will put into place. Trust me, this not so little bounce is a warning sign, the markets have been artificially propped up for the last decade. We are still pumping billions into them every month, that eventually needs to end. This bubble will burst, it will do so under Trump unless he manages to alter/change the current policies. With the divide in congress, that will not happen. Bush pushed for over 45 pieces of legislation aimed at stopping the housing and market melt downs. The split congress, the left not only wouldn't pass anything, but went on a public campaign to say there was nothing wrong. We are doing the same things, the results will be no different. Million and millions, myself included, lost most if not all of our wealth between the dot com and the 08 burst, nice to see you can mock us for it.

  • The short and fast answer to growing deficcit question, where from? -- Tax the Rich!?

    Best answer: Like everything else in America, the growing deficit will be debt financed. This has been the reality ever since the Reagan administration. Think of it this way. In the late 1940s the top marginal tax rate was 90% for couples making more than $200,000 (about $2.7M in 2017 dollars). This means every dollar earned... show more
    Best answer: Like everything else in America, the growing deficit will be debt financed. This has been the reality ever since the Reagan administration.

    Think of it this way. In the late 1940s the top marginal tax rate was 90% for couples making more than $200,000 (about $2.7M in 2017 dollars). This means every dollar earned in excess of $200k was taxed at 90%. This high tax rate is what financed America. It allowed us to become the most dominant superpower in the country.

    Under Reagan that all changed. He lowered the top marginal rate to 39.5% (if I recall correctly). Suddenly, the US had much less money flowing into the treasury, but at the same time we were increasing our spending to keep up with the Cold War. So where did all that missing money come from? Debt.

    The US government sold Treasury bonds to finance this debt spending, and who bought those Treasury bonds? Rich people from all over the world. In effect, America moved from capital financing through taxes to debt financing through lending. This means the rich who once financed America through their high taxes suddenly became creditors to whom America OWED money.

  • If you were to get change for a ten-dollar bill today, what would be the best combination of bills and coins for you? Explain.?

    Best answer: If I was to change a $10 it would usually be because I needed either coins or dollar bills for a vending machine or a parking meter. So I'd say 'A five, four ones, and four quarters, please'. But of course it would depend on why I needed the change, right? There's an old story about a little boy... show more
    Best answer: If I was to change a $10 it would usually be because I needed either coins or dollar bills for a vending machine or a parking meter. So I'd say 'A five, four ones, and four quarters, please'.

    But of course it would depend on why I needed the change, right?

    There's an old story about a little boy who comes into a store and asks the cashier for five pennies for a nickle. She does it for him, and half an hour later he comes in to change the five pennies back for a nickle. He changes them back and forth every 20 minutes or so for the rest of the day. Finally the cashier asks him why he's doing this. He says 'Well, lady, i figure sooner or later one of us is going to make a mistake. And it's not going to be me!'
