**PolitiFact – ‘Overall, though, the evidence doesn’t show that high growth occurred in the wake of the Bush tax cuts. We rate the claim Mostly False”.(2)
Trickle down 101.
‘Jeb Bush got caught in a web of lies about his plan to cut taxes for the rich, and a Fox News Sunday interview that was supposed to revive his presidential campaign’.
WALLACE: “But whether it was Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts or your brother’s tax cuts, they did add greatly to the deficit”.
BUSH: “That not — they didn’t as greatly as — as the static thinkers on the left think. They created a dynamic effect of high growth”.
“We have to jump-start the economy so that people can have more money to make decisions for themselves”.
WALLACE: “Then there’s another complaint, and that is the issue of who benefits. The Tax Foundation says the middle class would see after-tax income increase 2.9 percent. But the top 1 percent would get a boost of 11.6 percent”.
“An analysis of your tax returns for the last six years, which you have released to the public, the last six years indicates that you would save, under your tax plan, $3 million”.
“Does Jeb Bush need a $3 million tax cut”?
BUSH: “Look, the benefit of this goes disproportionately to the middle class. If you look at what the middle class pays today compared to what they would pay in our tax plan —”
WALLACE: “But they get a 2.9 percent increase in after tax income —”
BUSH: “Because higher income people pay more taxes right now and proportionally, everybody will get a benefit. But proportionally, they’ll pay more in with my plan than what they pay today”.
WALLACE: “Well, I mean forgive me, sir, but — but 2.9 seems like it’s less than 11.6”.
BUSH: “The simple fact is 1 percent of people pay 40 percent of all the taxes. And so, of course, tax cuts for everybody is going to generate more for people that are paying a lot more. I mean that’s just the way it is”.

‘So by this measure, George W. Bush ranks second to last, undercutting Bush’s argument’.

Ben needs to think about what he’s saying.
Oh not the hate and Islamophbic spewing but what would happen when it’s turned around on Christians?
That’s why there is a separation of church and State.
To protect religious beliefs…….Something Ben seems to want to prosecute.
A picture of Ben Carson has been added to dictionaries to the word Whack-A-Doodle.
‘Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson told ABC’s This Week that he “would certainly be willing to listen to somebody” argue that the religion of Middle Eastern refugees should be considered probable cause for searches or wiretaps’.
“I personally don’t feel that way, but I would certainly be willing to listen to somebody who had evidence to the contrary,” Carson said on the program Sunday morning. “I think that’s one of the problems, we get to our little corners and we don’t want to listen to anybody anymore.”
READ THE CONSTITUTION
‘For search warrants, “probable cause exists when there is a fair probability that a search will result in evidence of a crime being discovered,” according to the Legal Information Institute’.
‘In other words, using religion as a test for a search warrant would suggest that members of a religion have a “fair probability” of committing a crime’.
