How to teach a liberal about tax cuts in a few easy steps

Next time someone argues that tax cuts need to be paid for follow these steps:

Step 1: Ask them to hand you a $20

If they say NO press them, if they point out it is their money ask why they have a right to keep their own money but someone else doesn’t?

If they say YES or just give you the money put it in your pocket and drop the subject.

Step 2: Wait for them to ask you for it back.

If they don’t ask for it back, keep it until they do, if they never ask for it back when you see them next go back to Step 1

If they ask for it back, inform them they you can’t give it back until you can find a way to “pay” for that $20. If they absolutely insist tell them you’ll be happy to negotiate a deal whereby he gives you $5 a week over the next 4 weeks and you will give them back that $20.

If they argue that it’s not the same thing because they are not “rich” point out any one thing that they own that you don’t to illustrate they have more than you and how unfair that is. Watch them become free market capitalists almost instantly!
