    I agree both sides of the equation needs to be looked at. It isn't so simple as that, You have to consider other govt taxes we pay that are not federal.

    Consider this. If someone pays more federal income tax, they have less pocket money to spend. Local and State sales tax goes down. leaving them will less revenue. So local, State needs to raise revenue or cut spending. So Hay, how do you respond to this.
    You happy just trying to make the feds happy and you dont care about your local situation

    I do not know how you can speak for progressives when you are not one of them. I am and I certainly want the debt to be dealt with and paid down. I think its disgusting that my grandchildren will be paying for unfunded and unneeded foreign wars, tax cuts for the wealthy, and unfunded mandates incurred when they had nothing to do with it.

    Thank you for not engaging in the type of reckless speculation that Conservative just did. I can divulge that what motivates me is a deep and abiding love for the United States of America, its people and its institutions.

    Since when are tax cuts an expense? Is that what you learned in school? Show me the line item that classifies people keeping more of their own money an expense to the govt? Is that what you believe your take home pay is? Unbelievable how brainwashed you really are if that is what you believe.

    Thanks to mike for agreeing with me that both sides of the ledger need to be looked at.

    I will not waste one more second of time arguing this again and again and again with you since it has been many times in many threads by many people and with you its like talking to a wall.

    That is why I gave you the benefit of doubt. Too bad you cannot see what a fool liberalism is making out of you. Anyone that believes the taxpayer keeping more of what they earn is an expense to the govt. has a serious problem and cannot be taken seriously. Anyone that believes sending more money to the govt. is going to reduce the deficit and debt ignores history. It really is a shame that your loyalty to liberalism ignores reality.

    That is exactly what I mean when I talk about you being brainwashed. I believe you have good intentions but have been brainwashed into believing that liberalism generates positive results. It doesn't, it creates dependence and if you will not recognize that then I will be changing my opinion of you. Hopefully you are the good person and means well. Too bad results never match your rhetoric.

    Feeding hungry children is indeed a positive result. Treating the sick is a positive result. Providing for shelter so people do not freeze during the winter is indeed a positive result.
