The only effective way to limit taxes is to impose a cap on spending.

This will probably take a constitutional amendment imposing the following:

1) Budgets limited to 90 percent of the last year's total expenditures. Higher revenues (if any) applied to deficit reduction and unfunded mandates.

2) Total expenditures limited to a percentage of GNP (say 20 percent for the Feds) with emergency waivers in time of war (e.g. approval of 2/3 of states).

3) Certain Federal functions (e.g. defense) receive mandatory funding minimums (e.g. 20 percent of total budget).

Nothing else is going to work over the long term!

In private industry, when you don’t meet your budget, you get replaced. If revenue is off, line items get cut: 1)Travel, 2)Meals & Entertainment, 3)Training, 4)Advertising, 5)Computers, 6)People.

In government, the budget is sacred and MUST be spent to avoid losing it going forward.

Too bad that government is not run like private industry.

How about ‘Recall ANY Congressman or Senator who voted to bankrupt our country’ ?

When the New York Times does a retrospective of Obama's first 120 days in office, they'll leave this out.

Same with NBC, CBS, ABC, Meet the Press, etc.

And yet, they'll wonder why their numbers go down...

I love the alternative, but not the first one. After all, Bernie Madoff WAS indicted. Anyway, the derivatives and mortgage-backed securities might have been okay IF the mortgages they were based on weren't so badly diluted with all the toxic ones the politicians forced the banks to sell. So in my mind, anyway, it's still an open question. Expanding upon our previous conversation...

I'm curious as to why you think that would work when it hasn't worked before?

To the best of my knowledge, it's never been tried before with the Federal government. Certainly not with a constitutional amendment.

On the other hand, it's been implemented elsewhere with great success. In Oklahoma, an example I am very familiar with because I worked with it, county and city entities are required to submit and live with a budget for no more than 90 percent of the prior year's receipts. If at the end of the year, they discover they have collected more money than they have spent, the surplus is used to pay down debt and/or carried forward to the next year and reflected in that budget.

Last time I checked, it was working quite well.
