[QUOTE=Lord Tammerlain;1059140758]Where did I say that?How will increasing taxes put 16 million people back to work and paying taxes?tax revenues can go up with tax increases, or they can go down, tax revenues can go up with tax cuts, or they can go down with tax cuts. It is entirely dependant on the what is occuring in the wider economy. Small tax increases or cuts will have minor effects either way.
Currently the US government has a trillion dollar deficit, tax cuts are not going to solve that. A combination of tax increases and spending cuts are going to be required to eliminate the deficit. Thankfully I have an education and not some piece of paper from Coconut College. Try to think critically about all factors that effect the economy rather some narrow set of stats and you will be far better served by your "vast" knowledge

Texas already looms large in its own imagination. Its elevated self-image didnít need this: More than half of the net new jobs in the U.S. during the past 12 months were created in the Lone Star State.According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 214,000 net new jobs were created in the United States from August 2009 to August 2010. Texas created 119,000 jobs during the same period
