Who’s going to pay?
Relative to: Everything written today, which was all about the Deficit Reduction Recommendati0ns
The election cycle the country just experienced put a great deal of emphasis on balancing the budget. Well the rubber must hit the road, and for the young, new politicians with a mandate to balance the budget to make hard choices regarding taxes. You can’t just cut taxes, cut spending, and expect it all to work out. Someone’s going to have to suffer.
On top of which, if we’re going to balance the budget, we’ll have to let the Democrats in office know that they’ll have to make tough decisions regarding social services. We can’t just raise taxes and continue to spend and expect it all to work out. Raise taxes, cut spending, cut services, cut taxes: it’s not my job to solve, its yours now. But someone is going to have to suffer.
