We're having this discussion about taxes because Obama has no clue how to grow the economy. He has no clue how to eliminate the waste and cost of government. He has no idea how to create jobs for the poor or how to raise incomes of the middle class. Tax Policy is one factor, but there are others far more important to the growth of the economy.
The real key to the debt problem is improving the efficiencies and profitability of America.
A smart President could do that. This one can't.
