[QUOTE=FilmFestGuy;1059112529][I]Liz Peek at FoxNews.com congratulates me for writing about the importance of economic growth. So in the spirit of maximizing growth, I want to pose a question: Why should we believe that extending the Bush tax cuts will provide a big lift to growth?
It really doesn't matter what the tax rate is if the government is going to ignore a budget and borrow money overseas.
The government has plenty of money. The question should be made as to why they need more and to what purpose.
Taxes could go up 20% but this is no guarantee that spending wouldn't go up 30%.
It's how taxes are spent, or not spent, that really matters. It seems clear that the more the taxpayer gives the more the government spends. Until politicians develop some discipline, why give them more?
