Oh, wait, you'll lie, so I'll remind the forum...
"You see, the growing surplus exists because taxes are too high, and government is charging more than it needs. The people of America have been overcharged, and, on their behalf, I'm here asking for a refund. " George Bush, 2.27.2001
I don't think that cuts in taxes are on the table from either side as of now, but keeping the tax rates of today, rather than an increase in taxation is. As for entitlements, I agree that they need serious cuts, and reform. And with that kind of actual common sense thinking, and the stability that it brings to the market, jobs will be created, not by government, but by those businesses that see that a liberal wrecking ball is not headed their way....Ask Gibson guitars.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
