    Well that's a start at least. I think raising taxes is also punishment to us for not having kept a lid on the government in the first place. Ultimately everything government does, we're responsible for. We gotta pay for what we spent eventually. Part of being responsible for this mess is to accept that for our lax control.

    Not always, there was certainly a time when a man could pride himself on no debt. It's a product of the economy we have. The government can, in theory, deficit spend forever so long as there is someone willing to buy your debt. But it's not infinitely stable, and certainly not at the rate by which we are running our deficit. At some point you have to pay the piper. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

    Higher taxes on small businesses certainly don't lead to job growth.
