No, that was a question during the republican primary debates. They were offered only something close to 2.5-3.0:1 cuts to taxes. And, as always the spinless politicians had most of the cuts on the backend 6-10 years out while the taxes went into effect immediately. That is the problem, the cuts never happen. Their reelections depend on that fact alone
