If we don't raise taxes and cut unnecessary spending we will go down the toilet, economically. The bush tax cuts are responsible for much of our current debt along with 2 wars that should never been paid for by borrowing. The current GOP is fiscally destroying the GDP, Its called shared sacrifice to rescue the country. The rich 1st, followed by the rest of us have to help get our debt under control

So then....liberals have always maintained that the Bush tax cuts were only for the rich....so be it..I'll buy it...so then let EVERYONE return to the pre-Bush tax cuts and move on. I mean if all these tax cuts were for the rich, the middleclass and lower earners would not be impacted.....let's go for it!

Idiot. Revenues went up every year after the Bush tax cuts were passed. The problem is spending. There is no amount of revenue that democrats (and RINOS) can not overspend.

And Medicare alone loses about as much every year to fraud and waste as the wars cost to finance.

Moron. If the wars cost a trillion $ (which they did not), that would be less than $100 billion a year. A lot of money, but not near the $16 trillion or $1.5 trillion per year we are adding to the debt. The Bush tax cuts are neutral at worse and possibly are responsible for what little growth we have had. If raising the tax rate will generate more revenue, the, using the same logic, grocery stores could just double the price of bread and make twice as much money. Learn economics before you speak. Plus, this year we had the largest amount of revenue in history. The MOST money ever brought in and we still lost $1.5 trillion. We do not have a revenue problem. The rich are paying more than their share.

Read something besides left wing tal

If I keep reading the advice of those who are saying we should give Barack Obama what he wants, let him take the American economy into the quicksand and make him own it, I am going to be tempted to agree.

So I’m going to stop reading such things.

With respect to those who offer that strategy, it is flawed on multiple levels. It may not work, it would confuse people about what conservatism is and what it does, and it would slam the brakes on our most valuable passion right now-- the desire to save what we can...
