Warped Perspective

I keep hearing these liberals talk about how much tax cuts "cost" the government.

Huh?

If I get a tax cut, the government's not spending the money, it's just not taking it from me.

An analogy: let's say I habitually submit fake expense reports to my employer, since I know Accounting will never question me. And let's say I make a tidy sum doing that every year.

If I were to stop doing that, would Democrats say that "cutting my fake expense reports" was "costing me money"?

Because I would describe it more as "doing the right thing by not abusing the trust of those who pay my salary".

Oh, and the "generous cuts to the estate tax" garbage? Yeah, it's going from 0 to 35%. How in heaven's name is that a "cut"?
