My point is merely that we don't have to raise taxes. We just need to cut useless spending.
If the government doesn't use the money it gets on useless things, it will save that money. Thus it does not need to raise taxes.
People think cutting spending is going to lead to disaster or weaken the USA. But were we in that bad of shape in the year 2000? No, in fact we were
in much better shape back then. If we cut spending back to year 2000 levels, the amount of money we save and are not spending would be equal or maybe
even more than the entire income the US Government gets from the income tax.
We could completely get rid of the income tax, something that 100% of Americans hate! It's possible and not even hard to do, and there would be no
consequences at all for it!
But shh. ;-P Politicians won't tell you that. They love to spend money, especially when it's not their own. I mean, who wouldn't any way?
