ABSTRACT
The article explains the potential of the tax cuts in generating jobs and other economic benefits in the U.S. Republicans have promoted tax cuts since then-U.S. president George W. Bush imposed them in 2001, which made 8 million jobs, and seek to have the cuts lengthened because the American elite under the cuts spend less money than the middle and working class Americans. Republicans oppose the Democrats calling for revival of the tax hikes for the elite by then-U.S. president Bill Clinton because the hikes can weaken the economy and make less jobs.
