    Collecting bargaining goes hand in hand with giving benefits. I support decreasing union power to a level that it economically feasible and fair to everyone in the workforce. It's not right for government employees to have fat benefits at the expense of taxpayers.

    Why must I explain and address tax cuts? If you must know, I support cutting spending and taxes to keep a small government that provides necessities. States and the federal government are spending far more than what they take in through taxes. Please explain how they government should increase their revenues to balance the budget and allow for such increased spending.

    You know that tax cuts increase the deficit...

    No, I'm saying that the bill will fund 88% of the pension funds rather than 100%.

    Hey, like The Messiah said, everyone has to get some skin in the game.

    Yes, which is why I said we need to decrease spending in order to meet a balanced budget that factors in those tax cuts. I said the government should shrink to provide necessities and prevent wasteful spending.

    Okay, so you support decreasing spending and decreasing taxes...
