    And you're talking about common sense?
    It shot up because of spending, not because of tax cuts. Tax cuts have nothing to do with deficit spending.

    Revenue - expenses = income/loss

    Your arguments would carry more weight if they were actually true

    TransCanada said that it would work with the State Department to find a new route, but warned that delay could kill the project, and with it tens of thousands of construction and related jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenues.

    I have actually looked into this, by examining Federal revenue vs. expenditures from 1992-2008.

    Its a big mess, hard to understand. But clearly, the Bush tax-cuts had a negative-effect on Federal revenue.

    How much? Your guess is as good as mine.
