I'll take a stab at it...although I prefer to be identified as a conservative.
He wants them to be true to their pledge. They got elected because they took this specific pledge, etc..
ya'll love to cut 'em up when they change their minds and now you want to cut 'em up because they won't.
Before we get all up on taxes of "the clinton" era could we return spending to those same levels? I'll even settle for "as a percentage of gdp".
Otherwise tax increases, revenue enhancements, etc are just a giant rhetorical excercise aka fiddle playing while Rome burns. The numbers are so big as to not be comprehended.
From the article; "The real problems are a political class that won't control its spending and economic policies that are retarding growth."
If you're waiting with baited breath to pay more taxes just whoop out that check book and write the feds a check...they'll cash it! You don't have to wait on an act of Congress to "do the write thing".
