Government is never revenue contstrained

Thanks to fiat currency system we have now the government can fund it expenditures before collecting taxes. Taxes are used as a tool to make you accept the fiat currency, limit taxpayer's ability to spend, and reduce amount of currency in circulation when needed. All those talks about increasing taxes in order to raise government revenue have no ground. The Fed and Treasury know that very well.
