    How can someone so smart not see the very simple fact that we have a spending problem, not an income problem?

    There is no such thing as tax hikes. All that happens is the return to normal. Please remain seated until the plane has come to it’s final stop…

    Isn’t it amazing that Boehner, Cantor, and McConnell don’t budge an inch from their single rail; which is STOP EATING we will never raise income to feed you, unless you’re among the 1 tenth of 1% eating not only high off of, but devouring the whole hog.

    @NeoconMan – Are you saying that we do not have a spending problem? Really? We all understand that the economy is dependent upon government spending but some of us believe that that situation is not ideal. At some point, someone needs to say something like – OK, lets cut all government spending by (eg) 1 percent – across the board – everyone takes a hit. The logical alternative seems to be “always increase taxes”. We would love to hear alternative solutions that make sense to a majority of rational individuals.

    Bob Gorrell — champion of the radical rich and the lobbyists who support them.

    He ran on the policy. He won the election. Are you making war on him, or on us?

    sorry but cut spending should be on top of the list. And increase tax breaks to companies that produce here.

    @ninety_nine_percent – So, just because we against raising taxes, we are somehow pawns of the rich? Surely you are smart than that. The rich will not suffer because of the hikes – they will still be rich, but do you understand that the amount is but a pittance compared to the total debt? Once again, it a spending problem.
    @TJDestry – O did not run on much of anything except to disparage his opponent. In only very few ads did O ever attempt to run on his accomplishments. At least, that was true in the states I saw his messages.

    “…..Once again, it a spending problem…”
    .
    No it is a revenue problem, as well as a spending problem on stupid wars and bloated Pentagon budgets.
    Bush and Company started two wars (and other unfunded stuff) and cut taxes. Any economist or rational person will tell you that is foolhardy policy that leads to trouble. Yet the Republicans now block a modest tax increase on the wealthy that would right previous wrongs and contribute to fiscal balance. If the Republicans want to be stupid and wreck their economy, that is their business, but they should also realize the effect is global.

    -
    So what spending should we cut?
    -
    Whatever spending you suggest, will Republicans propose those cuts and take responsibility for them?

    @onguard

    Inflation adjusted and relative to GDP, that would be a deal.

    @What-D-Hey

    False, we have BOTH.

    Back in the waning months of 1999 Federal revenue matched Federal spending. How we got there is a result of a modest tax cut for the middle class, rigorous limits on spending, and a growing economy during the Clinton presidency. With Bush in office tax cuts were granted to the upper class, and congress started spending (and borrowing) like there was no tomorrow.
