If the dillweed politicos would actually PAY OFF THE DEBT I might even favor a significant tax increase. Unfortunately Capitol Hill seems to think we are little more than a well to which they can return whenever they want, so if they raised taxes 30% they would probably vote themselves a congratulatory pat-on-the-back pay raise for their stunning insight, fund a bunch of pork-barrel projects and toss a shovelful of dirt in the Grand Canyon of our debt, then talk about the next tax increase needed to offset the increasing trade deficit.
Personally I thinkl that for every percentage point tax increase they pass, their salaries should be cut by 5%. As that happens the deep pockets supporting "our representatives" will be all the more apparent, and then if the stars are in alignment "the people" might possibly wake up and fire them.
Nah, won't happen.
And yeah, I'll admit I'm bitter.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
