Of course the public doesn't want any cuts, who doesn't want more free stuff? After all, the members of both parties have been basically spending money we don't have, to give to people and essentially telling people 'don't worry about it, nobody has to pay for this stuff'. If any good can come from large tax increases (as long as they are broad-based) it may cause at least some people to tune into the fact that things cost money...in other words, as long as everything is free, who is going to complain?
“Free stuff” will always be free for most people. The rich — who will always be in the minority, by definition — will fund the cushy life of the majority.
The low-information majority, educated in public schools and not taught values of faith and sacrifice by their parent(s) — will never understand.
