I agree, though in all 4 instances in this country's history where we've cut income taxes across the board, revenues have actually increased (after the obvious initial year or two decrease.)
Dems haven't cut taxes since JFK, if I'm not mistaken. Unless you're counting the recent 2 year extension of the Bush tax cuts.
Increasing taxes in this economy is absurd.
I'm fine with the pay and benefits they get (though I do get a kick out of the ability to vote yourself a raise,) as long as they start actually reading the bills they pass and start taking responsibility for the consequences of those bills.
I thought that only happens in Jamaica and let me tell you that's one of the few times all 60 parliamentarians vote in unison.
