[QUOTE=bitonti;4258115]I support paying the bills. Not cutting taxes forever and borrowing. in the 1960s 1980's etc there were much higher tax rates and life was pretty good. [/QUOTE]
Yeah, we've heard you spew this time after time. It doesn't mean anything.
We have all these threads about what spending is terrible and very few threads about paying for our obligations. [/QUOTE]
You're free to start whatever threads you like. But I'm not seeing why this particular topic falls under the category of our "obligation"
the problem is not really the spending it's the revenue. You want to end entitlements that date back to FDR or LBJ, that's not a realistic outcome. what's more realistic is that taxes go up and the balance is paid.[/QUOTE]
This topic is not an entitlement that dates back to FDR or LBJ. It just happened. But we get it. You see it as wasteful, but not as wasteful as something else, so let's just shrug our shoulders and raise taxes to pay for it. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
And it's not a spending issue :rolleyes:
