That is according to Paul Volker.
“If at the end of the day we need to raise taxes, we should raise taxes,” he said.
Here’s my question. Not to JUST you, but to Congress AND the Administration.
Remember the transparency promised concerning earmarks?
How about it? Don’t you agree that has to be curtailed? Minimized? Scrutinized for real worth? Denied in some or most cases? Just how much of a percentage of everything Congress spends is just earmarks? (Okay, that is a lot of questions. TRY ANSWERING THEM FOR ONCE.)
You seem to want to raise taxes just for taxes sake, Paul.
We do NOT need that, We do NOT WANT that.
We NEED you to STOP THE IRRESPONSIBLE AND EXCESSIVE SPENDING FIRST!!
Second, we need you to reduce the overblown budget.
