We all know it, but no one on the right wants to say it, taxes have to go up, it's a given. Although, there has to be spending cuts, huge, deep spending cuts to go along with those tax hikes. Republicans have to stand their ground on the hikes and force cuts on everything, across the board. I'm not talking about cutting the projected spending either, everything needs to be cut. We also need a Balanced Budget Amendment forcing Congress to pass a budget every year and sticking to it. In the budget every year, a certain percentage of total revenue is set aside for emergencies, like Sandy. This has to happen.
