The Republicans have the right idea. People pay entirely too much in taxes already. As far as government spending goes, they are completely out of control. They do not need more money as they are unable to wisely spend the money they currently have. Whether they get an increase in taxes or not, spending needs to be cut.
Overspending is the problem. Under taxation is not the problem. How can the government continue to borrow so it can spend beyond its revenues? The emergency must be declared ended. World WAR 2 is over. The cold war is over. The emergency spending must be ended now. Return to fiscal responsibility or learn Chinese.
