Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is trying to convince us that cutting taxes (cutting the government’s income) will reduce the deficit. This is false.
The following is a quote from a Bloomberg article on July 30, “Treasury Sees Second-Half U.S. Borrowing at Most Since 2008.” “The Treasury is boosting sales of bills, notes and bonds to help finance a budget gap that’s widening after President Donald Trump signed $1.5 trillion in tax cuts late last year and the Republican-controlled Congress approved a roughly $300 billion spending increase.”
I voted for Democrat Carolyn Long on Aug. 7 and will do so again Nov. 6
