I keep hearing congress-critters say that in addition to cutting spending, taxes need to be raised. That we just need to "compromise."

I can agree with them. I would be willing to accept tax hikes along with spending cuts. But something that's always been proven to fail are tax increases now, in exchange for promised spending cuts sometime in the future. And I for one am tired of feeling like Charlie Brown kicking a football held by Lucy.

I propose that we start with spending cuts, in return for promised tax increases, sometime in the future. As with the dems and their "spending cuts," these future tax increases probably won't happen.

I agree, but that is never going to happen. We need to begin to starve the beast or at least shrink it.
