    What? BO has three straight years of deficits over $1.2 trillion and you called that "funded".

    You, sir, have no idea what you're talking about here.

    Why the stealfromus bills that need to raise taxes, so we can, "create jobs"? Hmm?
    Selling government financial instruments like bonds won't make up the difference in lost revenue from lower employment numbers or the tax subsidies the Treasury pays out. Bonds are just one way the government makes money but bonds alone will never generate the kind of money the federal government needs to pay the salaries of its employees include members of Congress and the President or provide the services it does to the public. I'm sure your response to this will be "limit/reduce the size of government" but firing people or closing federal offices alone WILL NOT solve our nation's debt and deficit problems.

    nevermind the fact that some civil servants are paid from capital bonds and NOT tax-revenue.
    That's a large part of how most states make their revenue. It's not just through taxation. Municiple bonds play a key role in state revenue and is one of the main reasons why so many states are having financial problems right now. When the economy tanked in 2008 it took the municiple bond market with it. Why do you think so many 401K plans lost their value during the crisis especially those funded by state governments?

    Answer: Municiple bonds tanked!

    I would never trust anyone who has the ability to freely give, but does not; instead calling for laws to enforce the act of themselves and others BEFORE doing so.

    based on that taxing the 400 or so billionaires more won't do much of anything to help then

    A 5% increase on Capital gains and a millionaire's surtax would go a long ways in that direction from where we are today, or any of the GOP tax plans.
