    The out of control spending by Obama and the democrats is doing that not tax cuts.

    Tax cuts and shoot the bastards who spend more than last year's revenue.

    The issue is too much spending, not too little taxes.

    A government that could not run debt would cause societal collapse. I'm sure mayor snorkum may find anarchists that agree with him.

    Where were you during the last decade? You do realize that the start of the "out of control spending" was under a Republican congress and White House right?

    You can do both, you know.

    Balance the budget by cutting some taxes AND (my oh my) reducing spending significantly.

    But we can't have that bit of common sense - no indeed we cannot! That is just too logical!

    The reason why we have such an egregious imbalance is because they chose ot cut taxes here and there but only increased spending exponentially (even Clinton did *gasp*)

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    That's not automatic. Absolutely no reason the government can't exist using the revenues from the previous year. Especially this government, when 75% of the budget is unlawful and wrong.

    Its both. Even if you were preparared to go along with ending both our wars immediately and cutting our military spending in half, and cutting the waste and fraud from our social safety net programs, it still wouldn't be enough without the discontinuing the tax cuts the wealthy have enjoyed for the last 30 years.

    No, doing the right thing is a violation of the leftist agenda.
