    Do you think those extra dollars will be used to pay down the debt or will DC find a way to just spend it??

    I don't think this administration has any desire to pay down the debt, they just want more to spend. On vacations, parties, paying off they're supporters with tax payer dollars, golfing, traveling the world, and don't forget supporting Union cronies. :eusa_whistle:

    Democrats have no intention of ever paying down the debt or deficit.

    They were offering the Reps 3-4 $ in cuts for every $ in taxes. Think you should pay attention to the news. You won't look so foolish in the future. :cool:

    To a large extend the problems we face now as a result of a growing national debt can be laid at the feet of Bush II's tax cuts coupled with two unfunded wars.

    Remember that we were paying down the natuinal dubt under Clinton during those better times?

    That being said, I do NOT support tax increases at this time, given the deflational recession we're in.

    A curious statement, in view of the fact that, since 1980, it's Republicans who have done the most to run up the deficit in peacetime and prosperity.

    Personally, I suspect that's by design. Deficit spending allows the rich to LEND the government money (at interest) instead of merely having it taken in taxes, and this amounts to a transfer of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy, which is what the GOP is all about.
