Tertullian, there is not a liberal on the planet that believes or will admit to some tax cuts lead to increased tax revenues.
After W. Bush's first tax cuts, government revenue fell ten billion dollars. (To muddy the waters, federal deficits are a form of tax. Federal fractional reserve borrowing fills the government coffers and devalues the dollars held by the public.)
Anyway, it's the goal of liberals is maximum federal revenue. It's the goal of conservatives is less federal revenue. Just because Democrat and Republicans might fight over federal revenue benefit of tax rates doesn't mean that the goals of liberals and true conservatives are any different.
More business activity etc will produce more revenue. Our corporate tax rate is the highest in the world. Reduce that, jobs come back, business booms and voila tax revenues increase.
Your neocon pals want to turn big business into tax havens for the rich. They think Soros, Trump, Romney, and Buffett pay too much in taxes (even though each of them pay a smaller percent than their secretaries), and that the middle-class doesn't pay enough (the middle-class has to take up the slack). The real cause of jobs being exported is the US has the lowest tax rate on imports in the world.
Our tax code is so complicated because it is the tool of social engineering. When the liberals cease to have the ability to social engineering, they lose power. They don't give a rip about tax revenue, that is something they claim happens when you raise tax rates on the rich.
The Republican-controlled Congress just added more complexity this month by exempting financial rewards of rich Olympians from taxes. Yes, liberals use our tax code for social engineering. That's the main purpose of taxes. And, Republicans are no less guilty of it than Democrats, especially when they boast of raising tax revenues with tax cuts or offering revenue-natural tax schemes that reduce taxes on the royal rich. Republican neocons want to turn the middle-class into serfs.
A conservatives wants federal tax revenues reduced (and, no borrowing). Anyone wanting anything else is not acting as a conservative.
