Emily or David,
Love the program!
The problem with this discussion is people look at the taxes they pay and they simply want more money in their pocket rather then considering the larger society as a whole. Why are we having a conversation about tax cuts when we are borrowing record amounts of money for the Federal deficient?
The self employed folks that keep calling in, saying in effect that the extra taxes they pay keep them from expanding is a fallacy. Taxes are part of doing business, like buying supplies, and as such get passed on to their customers. If you lower taxes the prices we pay for their services would remain the same but they would pocket more money.
PS. This a little pet peeve of mine, the Democratic Party should not be referred to as“democrat” ie. a “democrat idea” when using it as a noun.
