    Yes, you do. Blast them in the primaries. Get more people like Cruz on the ballot!

    Another lunacy is how much the government chose to cut taxes and then feigned outrage at the resulting deficits.... prior to the tax cuts, the budget was essentially balanced.

    The 17 trillion dollar debt is costing 400bn a year in interest. Thats about $3000 avg in taxes each income tax filer has to pay each year. Surely there has to be a better way to deal with the deficit than borrowing money. Raise taxes, cut spending.

    Both would be a good idea. Then the government, congress, the administration should stop adding programs until the deficits and debt is under control.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I would rather they cut spending of course, but simply having EVERYONE pay some taxes would solve that as well, instead of relying on 10% of the wage earners to pay most of it. The bottom 60% of tax payers account for 1.2 trillion in AGI but only 76bn in income taxes. And the benefit most from the 2 trillion in social spending.
