What is theoretically possible? Killing this bill and letting everyones taxes go up?
Getting something that doesn’t involve $330 Billion in new spending? Actually cutting spending?
Yes . elections have consequences
If they pass this bill, it will add $330 billion to the deficit in FY 2013 and add $4 trillion to the national debt over a ten year period.
I say if it means taxes go up on everyone, so be it. The voters want all the benefits of the welfare state and don't want to pay for it. Maybe we will get the public's attention focussed on our dire fiscal condition by letting them see how much it costs. We need to stop insulating the public from the pain of our huge deficits and debt and preventing the bill from being passed on to our children and grandchildren.
