It is easy to rant about the unfairness of ANY tax. Anti-tax advocates are making U.S. fiscal problems worse, not better. They add to a culture of fiscal irresponsibility in which we demand government services, but are unwilling to pay for them. Please do not misunderstand me. I am not opposed to the reduction or elimination of ANY government programs. But until such a time as politicians are willing to upset the portions of the electorate that benefit from government largesse by reducing their benefits, the responsible behavior is to pay for current government services rather than passing trillions of dollars of debt to our children, grandchildren, and future generations.
Keep ranting if it makes you feel better. But unless you support HIGHER taxes (on someone) or reduced government spending (on things YOU benefit from), then you are part of the problem, not the solution.
I await your plans for increasing federal government revenues or specific recommendations for $1.5 trillion (or more) in cuts to government services.
