Our government has become an overbearing behemoth. Tinkering with the tax code while conceding government growth to the left is a non-starter for me.
There is not a revenue problem. There is an out of control government spending problem. We must reduce the size and scope of the government by slashing spending and eliminating programs.
Americans were once proud to be self reliant and it was a stigma to be on welfare. In less than 1 generation the left has changed that attitude. We must get back to our roots and what made America great. People help people, not the government
