    "Courage" is to LOWER taxes and RAISE spending? Tell me you're joking. I really, really want to believe you have some semblance of common sense.

    Please. They never made any real attempt cut spending. It wasn't about the media or "wobbly R's". It was because they never had any intention of doing so.

    False. A look at the April US Treasury report is as follows:

    Individual income tax + 6 billion year over year
    Corporate tax (-) 8 billion year over year
    Soc security taxes + 30 billion year over year.

    Here's how this works- cut the corporate tax rate- lose almost no revenue. Corporations invest more and hire more- causing more employment.
    With more employment basic withholding goes way up.
    The affects of the tax cuts are just beginning as there is a lag with such legislation. Tax receipts will continue to rise barring an unrelated event/crisis.

    The problem is and always has been, too much spending. We must cut back on social programs incrementally and decrease the size of government.
