There are two ways to reduce the deficit, and both are probably needed. Reduced spending(which I have frequently referred to the need for), and increased revenue. Once we have at least a close to balanced budget and much lower debt, then we can look at what extras we can afford, and what taxes we might be able to live without. This particular tax is small enough to have no significant effect on people, and would raise revenue a notable amount.Stop spending a gazillion dollars on **** that won't produce any return! perhaps the deficit wouldn't be so bad, if we didn't piss money down a rabbit hole.
