Revenues went up when Reagan cut taxes
Revenues went up when Bush II cut taxes.
This is a really simple way to look at it, but I think quite appropriate for you.
35 % of a million and a half dollars is more than 40% of 1 million dollars.
God Bless America, and I have always been proud of my country unlike the dip-shit racist candidate you are supporting.
I am more of an American than a racist piece of shit like you will ever be and that includes your racist candidate. Sorry bastards like you don't love this country like I do; that's why I don't want Obama and his un-american bitch wife in the W.H.
Only a complete tool would vote for somebody on the basis of patriotism.
For the Record:
The slowdown of federal reciepts was due to the recession that Bush inherited.
Federal Receipts were falling BEFORE the Bush tax cuts and his policies went into effect. They ONLY began growing again AFTER the 2003 tax cuts accelerated the main aspects of the 2001 cut that were "Phased in" - or instituted the ones that had not yet been put into place.
In 2000, Federal Receipts were $2,025.5 Billion
In 2001 Federal Receipts were $1,991.4 Billion (The first set of Bush's tax cuts pass in June and budget not passed until October)
2002 Federal Receipts were $1,853.4 Billion
in 2003 Federal Receipts were $1,782.5 - the 2nd Bush tax cut was passed which implemented the main provisions of the first cut.
2004 1,880.3 Revenues began growing after tax policies began taking effect.
