Have you heard of any success stories when quantitative easing has been employed, Grinch? Isn't hyper-inflation a reality in countries where it has been tried, where people need wheelbarrows of money to buy a loaf of bread? And people burning their paper money for heating and cooking fuel because it is basically worthless as money? Didn't that happen recently in Botswana, I think?
The government would still get tax revenue, just not through wages, but rather through people spending their wages on goods and services.
If you permanently reduce the tax rate on the business people you give them the capital and incentive to grow their businesses, without fear of punitive increases in taxation the more successful they get, and put them in the position to become more confident to invest more of their earnings in expanding their businesses, without the fear of the government penalizing them for creating more wealth. Increased demand for goods and services goes hand in hand with the ability of regular folks to afford those goods and services, and that would come through increased employment and also increased disposable income. And the less the government interferes in this cycle, the better it tends to function as it should.
I believe that rich people and poor people, and all of us in between, should spend the money that we've earned, and no one else's. I no more want a tax reduction that comes at the expense of someone else's hard earned money, than I want a tax increase to provide free services to those the government deems eligible. Government aid to the truly needy should be minimal. The family, community, churches, synagogues and mosques should be the primary providers of charity to the needy, not the government, in my opinion.
