Cut taxes and rebuild the military

Over the past 36 years we’ve heard three presidents, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump, say the same thing. Whose taxes are they cutting and how are they paying for the increased military spending?

President Reagan and Bush II cut taxes for the wealthy and Trump is proposing cutting taxes for the corporations and their rich stockholders, just like Tom Corbett did in Pennsylvania to create huge budget deficits.

President Reagan tripled and Bush II doubled the national debt to pay for their military spending and wars. President Trump has already increased the budget for the military and wants to cut taxes for corporations. too.

What do you think will happen to the national debt again if taxes are cut to rebuild the military?
