We were not out of debt we simply brought in enough money to pay the bills the debt has consistently grown since Reagan. The Tech bubble and deflation created by Free Trade Agreements created enormous tax revenue 1999 proved to be the most revenue brought in by the Govt. The surplus was based on the assumption there would be no recessions and revenues would stay at that level for the following decade

There is a way and it was written out very well by Bowles- Simpson for every dollar of new taxes cut 3 of spending. Institute a 2% National sales tax and actually cut programs not just future growth of current programs

I don't really believe there is just one way to make things better. America has to want to heal and that requires, across the board sacrifice from everyone that benefits from living here..

As I understand, the cliff has been avoided for 2 months anyway.

I guess I think about this in the terms of Joe The Plumber...

If your house fills with water, would you raise the roof or try and get rid of the water?

Did you really think it would be any other way?

"Revenue" increases always come up short of what they predict when taxes increase, because predictions always are based on static models and presume that there can never be a negative impact on the revenue stream. While we can debate the extent to which that will happen, I know of nobody who denies the fact that the effect is real.

Woo hoo $15 billion in spending reductions. Of course, this won't stop anyone from introducing new spending bills. All it is in a reduction of spending already in place. New spending will still be unlimited. This is meaningless.
