We could lower everyone's taxes if not for the deficit.

The interest we owe on our debt is our fasting growing expense, outpacing entitlements. Our debt is so big that I don't see how it can be eliminated without some sacrifice/austerity.

As the old saying goes, "we don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending one"!

Good thing that some of the spending waste is getting some coverage inbetween the Martin/Zimmerman coverage(the woman that was shot dead and had her 3 day old baby snatched is far more compelling a story). But then again Fox Business News doesn't cover Martin/Zimmerman and they are always talking about wasteful spending, the deficit and alternative economic voices other than Krugman and Bernake!

I personally would have no problem paying more taxes but knowing it will be wasted in one major reason I am against any new taxes. No one should have to pay more until we get government spending under control. Heck, we haven't had a Federal budget in over 1,000 days.

And the Dems on the Budget Committee, mostly just stop by to say hello. Not interested in doing their jobs. Why is there no penalty for the Senate failing to do a budget? Or maybe there is? Anybody know?

Why work when one can live off of tax payers;-) I promise you that if we didn't pay people not to work we not only wouldn't have the huge illegal immigration problem but SS wouldn't be broke either.

No penality and there should be!

Much easier for them to just blame the Rebubs for not having a budget. What is laughable is that the budget proposed by the Repubs is phewney in terms of a balanced budget or deficit reduction. They need to be more honest because the financial insanity can't last much longer. The only reason we haven't been downgraded again is because of the fear of it setting off a worldwide depression.

Does the sec even pay taxes or do they actually get a socialist check from the real federal income tax payers?

The issue isn't raising taxes. Just think if there were fewer deductions... Raise the taxes on the rich and they'll still pay little b/c of all of the deductions. My $0.02.

Now, on the road for a turkey hunt :)

All in favor of eliminating deductions and CREDITS!!
Get rid of refundable credits to start.
