    Who controls The House. Which party brought it to the floor. I would think the GOPers would love to put their name on legislation like this, esp since 2014 is a election year....

    Oh wait 2014 is an election year

    Like I said "phony scandal."

    Same thing since a cut is a cut is a cut and they have less to work with.

    So the trick then is for them to ask for twice as much as they actually think they need in order to play that game.

    The size it was in the 1950's would be a start.

    Looks like the Senate is in jeopardy.

    No, the regime needs to do it's job and launch a real investigation into the renegades that are infesting the IRS.

    Got it loud and clear.
    Some things are very easy. When the Federal government is restricted to doing only those things enumerated in the Constitution or those things that logically from from them then the government will not need to consume one-quarter of the people's wealth each year. Tax rates can be capped at a reasonable amount (10% or perhaps 12%) and everyone can pay.

    Doesn't matter. They can prioritize, so it doesn't mean they'd collect one dime less. They don't have to apply the cuts to collections.
