>>3763174>we always get the oil
With Iraq we didn't. We are enjoying an oil surplus and subsequently low gas prices right now because of our shameless relationship with the criminal regime of Saudi Arabia who are the single most powerful member of OPEC, and an increase in our domestic drilling, clearly neither of which you support.>tax cuts
Tax cuts are good, Jimmy. "Not taking" something isn't the same as giving it, you dumb dumb. In a completely globalized economy with wildly fluctuating currency exchange rates between countries only a few hundred miles apart, making your country as attractive as possible to the biggest employers is a desirable thing. It's the same reason China has lowered their own tax rates-which were until recently already lower than ours-to compete, and it's why Mexico has been able to not only poach our manufacturing base for decades but why Mexicans can come here and work for "less money" while dogpiling 50 people into a 2 bedroom rental house. https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/13/us/undocumented-immigrants-stash-house-texas-trnd/index.html
Taxes don't go into your pocket, they go to organizations like the FDA so they can help maintain the various monopolies and arbitrary Intellectual Property law enforcement that have led to the healthcare crisis to begin with. They go to federal loan guarantees and grants for students which helped push general college tuition rates thousands of percentage points higher than that of inflation for what are often objectively worthless degrees.
You think that healthcare and tuition rates-which are the most profound problems facing americans today-would all go away if only the government would just give these organizations providing these services even more money vicariously through subsidy, effectively rewarding them for their unethical behavior and ensuring that they will never have to face consequences or change their prices or policies. You're wrong lol
