35. Define 'raising taxes'
Rescinding taxes* is not raising taxes.

Just as giving a department more money, but not as much money as for the previous year, isn't a tax cut.

We often hear the latter statement. But never the former one.

Particularly in a time of war, one we're told is supposed to be more significant than WW II, why are tax cuts being made and the deficit allowed to grow? Nobody had cut taxes during WW II...


* often made under the guise it would help everybody but sadly haven't
