You are correct of course. We could end SS and Medicare.......but then ya'll do not want to do that either.<quoted text>
Paying more taxes is not the way to eliminate the debt. The economy needs to grow. Bill Clinton was fortunate enough to be President when we had a booming economy. We were having a technological heyday at that time. That is the reason he was able to get the budget under control. A better economy translates into more tax revenue. What is needed now is an atmosphere that fosters a better economy. Raising taxes does not do that.
You are just like a fat person sitting in front of cake talking about going on a diet as they eat another piece of it.
It is a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Oh wait, don't cut that and don't cut that and we need another slice of that.....
Want some ice cream with that?
