If even one of our Leaders had an ounce of common sense they would know any talk of raising more revenue is an absurd proposition when we don’t know the actual cost of government. By actual cost, I mean those things that the Federal government is supposed to provide for us by its actual Constitutional directives. When we cut their size and scope back down to those important but very limited requirements, we should be able to pay our debt and reduce the tax burden on us all.
Just imagine how much more effective in Libya and during Katrina and Sandy the government would have been if they weren’t so distracted doing everything else but their jobs.
If only there was an ounce of common sense in Washington D.C.
