Pilot: Until we solve the problem of people taking extra peanuts we have no choice but to shut down the engines... we'll also save money on runway length.
I think what is important here is what is NOT being said. You see when it comes to budget cuts some in Congress would rather shut off the engine than shut off the ice cream machine, the jetted tub, the big screen TVs and the popcorn machine.
We must either raise taxes to support this size of government or we must cut government to allow the rate of taxation we have right now. What people don’t realize about the first option is just how much our taxes would have to be to support the drunken spending going on in government. We have a $1.3 trillion dollar gap right now and the richest man in the world is worth just south of $70 billion.
If you think the rich can pick up the tab, think again. Even if you took everything they owned it wouldn’t add up. Additionally, the same smarts that got many of them their money in the first place won’t stick around to have their assets confiscated. They will leave and those who can’t afford to leave will be stuck with a huge bill.
Either choice will hurt but they won’t hurt nearly as much as if we continue living in the dreamland that we do and crash the whole shooting match!
