    Yup, taxcuts sure do spur growth. For the rich that is, in their pockets, to hell with the deficit.

    The deficit would also be solved if they didn't spend $1.1 trillion more than they took in.

    But that makes way too much sense.

    Cuts need to be made, I agree, like the Bush taxcuts. Loophole for the rich need to be cut.

    That's just dumb... if you took ALL of the money possessed by the evil rich you wouldn't even put a dent in the deficit.

    Are you sure about that? If not for the Bush taxcuts which really put more money into the hands of the rich the deficit would not have skyrocketed.
