Comment: I was hoping...

(See in situ)


I was hoping...

...that Ben was going to point out that the spending "cuts" in the fiscal cliff aren't actually cuts, just reduction to proposed increases. Dr. Paul has outlined this very well on another occasion in a piece titled "When a Cut is not a Cut". Let the tax breaks expire. Let the tax hikes take effect. Everyone in the nation should know what taxes have to be to have a balanced budget when we're not using deficits anymore to hide the true cost of government. If we allow deficits to contine to ensure that we keep certain tax breaks, then the true cost of government is still hidden from the people. Who will oppose big government if we only make their kids pay for it instead of them? On the other hand, if you force the nation to see what government really costs, here and now, the ranks of the liberty movement would undoubtedly swell.
