The reduction of tax burdens would encourage employers and investors to begin re-investing in American business. The plan would fall short, if nothing else is done, but if spending cuts were enforces, the elimination of needless spending on programs that in fact do nothing. Elimiation of subsidies to oil, farm and others would also contribute. American takes in enough revenue to meet it obligations as it relates to Infratstructure, Public Safety and Education. It cannot continue to pay for failed pension funds, lousy run companies, or programs that merely drive up the cost of govenment.
I could go forever, but you get the jist
Very well put. Thanks for your insights.

Be specific!!
Not only that, but what will China do if we continue to refuse to manage our debt and reform our entitlement programs? Money from China is not endless, and at some point they may decide that we are a bad investment. Whether they are currency manipulators or not, if that credit line goes away, America starts defaulting in a hurry. Soon after that, hyper inflation turns us into the newest third world nation.

I'll take recession over economic collapse any day.

It is true that 47 percent of Americans did not pay net federal income taxes in 2009 — the number is unusually high because of the depression in incomes following the recession — but it is completely false that only 53 percent of Americans pay taxes.
For example, if you look at state and local taxes, the working poor actually pay a higher percentage of their income in these taxes in every state except for Vermont. In “Alabama, for example, low-income families (which make less than $13,000) pay 11 percent of their income in state and local taxes, while those making more than $229,000 pay just 4 percent.”
And it is worth noting that Americans who are too poor to be asked to pay net federal income taxes are not a good target for those complaining that some aren’t paying their fair share. If there’s one group of Americans that is paying less and less as the median American family is asked to pay more, it’s the super-wealthy. The top 400 taxpayers — who have more wealth than half of all Americans combined — are paying lower taxes than they have in a generation, as their tax responsibilities have slowly collapsed since the New Deal era as working families have been asked to pay more and more:
Rather than taking aim at some of the poorest members of our society — 62 percent of whom have incomes under $20,000 — Americans should be asking how we can get the super-wealthy to pay tax rates closer to their modern historical average and how we can lift up the incomes of those who are too impoverished to be asked to pay federal income taxes.
And your point (or goal), IS??
