    Getting rid of loopholes means tax increases. So what do you actually believe? Raise taxes and further damage the economy, or keep the tax rates where they are and merely maintain the damage level?

    It is never okay to raise taxes. But it is nearly always a good idea to lower them.

    IMO, since the promises to cut spending didn't pan out, we should increase taxes and increase spending

    I included and bolded the missing words in your statement. Why don't we do the opposite? This time, just for once let's get the spending cuts today with promises of tax increases in the future. I would agree to that deal. Wouldn't you?

    Yes, when my familys' bill exceed our income, the first thing I do is work fewer hours for less pay. Isn't that what every family does?

    I like it. Or I like the alternative. If you pay taxes you get to vote. If not, you don't. So people who pay property taxes get to vote in local elections to select the people who will spend the money. We should do the same at the federal level. If you want to vote then bring in your tax return and prove that you were a net tax provider and not a net tax consumer.
