Yep, tax cuts are fine, but we have reached the point of having to do some major spending cuts, too. We can't continue spending $4 trillion+ and act like it won't have an effect on the economy. Government workers will lose their jobs, but so what? Many of those jobs aren't needed, anyway. If the economy is allowed to grow, I'm sure those ex-government types not near retirement age can find a job in the private sector.
