You are equating tariffs with income taxes.

No, I am not. Tariffs and income taxes have been used as sources of government revenue. The example I posted shows that when governments cut taxes, whether they are tariffs or on income, their revenue goes up.

Except you ignored my request for an example of cutting income taxes causing revenues to got up.

Let's make it easy - use the most recent income tax cut to show how it has increased revenues.

Rather than cite just one example of how tax cuts have increased government revenues I suggest you read the book For Good and Evil The Impact of Taxes on the Course of Civilization. It tells how tax cuts have increased government revenues since the ancient Sumerians.
