    Public Pensions are not broken, they are underfunded due to past legislatures not providing the required funding in the budget. As long as the ARC is properly funded in the budget, like it has been the past two budgets, it is a self correcting mechanism over time.

    Let's just hope KY doesn't do the same as IL and other states and raise taxes to try and fix it. People don't realize when you lower taxes it actually brings in more revenue.

    BULLSHIT!!!

    Supply side economics are a proven farce since Reagan tried to sell the same pack of lies.

    It’s just a right wing warm fuzzy with no basis in factual accuracy.

    CNN proved it was false sometime ago. Jim Acosta headed the investigation.

    It's simple to understand, the less money the government is pulling from the economy, the more that stays in the hands of American families and business owners = more people working, along with higher wages = more tax revenue coming in. The government doesn't have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. The annual $960 that I am saving due to the tax cut directly benefits my family, instead of being sent overseas or wasted on something stupid like climate change funding.

    SHOW us proof.

    It's very easy to see you have NEVER had a successful business.

    Look at the HIGH TAX state of California, WORKING middle class people are moving OUT of that state to get away from those high taxes. Illegals with nothing are moving in to collect all the free stuff.

    Look at the HIGH TAX state of New York. They have several different TV commercials pushing the FACT they are LOWERING TAXES for business. If you have not seen them in the last year you do NOT have a TV, they are every where. The reason they are lowering taxes for business is because all the business are MOVING to LOW TAX states.

    Wow! Talk about denying reality!!

    You do realize you're living in the biggest economic boom in the last 50 years just because of a simple tax cut don't you??

    If our illustrious Congress had had the guts to cut a bunch more of the taxes and regulations that the "walking turd", our former "muslim-commie-in-chief" has foisted on our Country (like President Trump wanted to) .... we'd all be drinking that free Bubble Up and eatin' that Rainbow Stew!

    At least those of us who are willing to get off the couch and do a day's work would.

    WAKE UP!! Listen to the wheels of industry starting to crank again, just because of one, measly tax cut. :)

    You and I both know a free market economy and capitalism work and you can not tax your way out of a problem.

    I don't know how many times taxes were raised under Reagan, but I do know he was the sportsman's president! I could work 3 days a week, hunt and fish for the other 4 and have money leftover for Cope, gas, and lunch the next week!

    NONE, Reagan did NOT raise taxes, the DEMOCRATS in Congress did. The President can only put a bill before Congress and they vote on it. Reagan, Bush and Trump all sent bills to Congress for tax cuts. Besides trickle down DID work until the Democrats raised taxes. Look at the IRS records.
