We’re spending money we don’t have, and punishing America’s job-creators with higher taxes won’t fill the gap. Lowering the deficit requires two very simple things: cutting spending and growing the economy. We need common-sense, fiscally-minded men and women in Congress to get our country moving again. Since Washington politicians like Rep. Marchant aren’t getting the job done, you and I will have to.
The deep cuts proposed by Republicans in Washington amounted to a two percent cut in spending from the previous year. A two percent cut is NOT a “deep cut”.
Consider this: If the Democrats taxed the top two percent wage earners at 100%, taking away everything they make, they still could not solve our deficit crisis. We would still be facing a deficit. The only way to erase a 15 trillion dollar debt is to decrease spending and increase the amount of wage earners in the United States. The only way to do that is to grow the job market, which will then help grow the economy, because more people will have more money to spend.
