...is it really a tax cut?
One of my favorite excuses of the Democrats is - we cut taxes, but people didn't think we did.
It's summed up in this quote:
In fact the stimulus bill was full of tax cuts. The tax cuts were incremental, gradual, and extended over a period of time, so not only did people never actually notice them, the Democrats never explained them to the voters.
If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?
If you cut taxes and nobody feels it, did you really cut taxes?
There's an old saying that matches the Democrats' tax cut cries - it gives you a warm feeling but no one else notices.
