What does it mean if I support lowering business taxes? Does this mean I'm conservative?

    That is more generally a conservative policy, yes. You would want to do it to support business, and hope that with lower costs, businesses would use the extra money they get to keep to create more jobs. That would be the conservative way to think about economics - don't force anyone to do anything, just create the conditions where businesses will naturally do what you want them to.

    Of course business might not use the extra money to create more jobs, they might just keep it and get even richer. But as a conservative, you would hope they didn't do that. Telling them what to do would not be conservative. You believe that it's best to just let the free market do its own thing and not try to control it.

    Not really

    Obama wanted to lower corporate taxes after his reelection but the GOP refused to even discuss it because they would not give him credit for anything

    And I'm a liberal who fully supports corporate tax cuts, should have been offset by higher individual tax rates on capital gains and deferred interest

    Lowering business taxes in theory is supposed to encourage businesses to invest in more employees and help put more people to work. However the few times in my life that the Republicans used it it has tended to blow up in their face because they don't lower taxes contingent on new investment or hiring employees they do it to give them a tax break, which means more money in their pocket. They said the same thing about the big tax cut that they give the top 1% last year, but as you have witnessed, companies did not invest in new facilities or hiring more employees, instead they put the additional profits into the pockets of their investors and gave their CEO a raise. What the racist REPUBLICANS ARE SO IGNORANT ABOUT IS THEY DONT REALIZE THAT THEY ARE INFAVOR OF THIS...AND NOW THAT THE ECONOMY IS SLOWING DOWN WE HAVE COMPANIES LAYING OFF, THE JOBS NUMBERS IN MAY AND JUNE ARE EXTREMELY LOWER THAN PREDICTED, NOW SINCE TRUMP IS TAKING CREDIT FOR THE CURRENT STATE OF THE ECONOMY WHY ISNT HE ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE JOBS NUMBERS, AND THE ADDITIONAL 1 TRILLION DOLLARS ADDED TO THE DEFICIT SINCE 2017

    It probably means that you stand to benefit from lower business taxes.

    Funny how that works.

    It means that the illegal aliens you hire want more money since the democrats have it fixed so they can stay in the country. The price of labor is going up.
