    More revenue will have an impact to both the deficit and the debt.

    When you cut the revenue to the government, with no new revenue streams and/or expenditure cuts, both the deficit and debt will grow.

    Both BushII and Reagan proved that.

    Taxes are at historic lows. Spending as a percentage of GDP is at all time lows. Whatever we're doing, ain't working.

    How does the Romney/Ryan plan reduce the deficit? Oh yeah, it doesn't.

    Don't get too excited.

    ALLOWING ALL Bush tax-cuts to die-on-the-vine will pretty-much accomplish the same....just like the last time.....​

    Liberals are never concerned with facts and results.............Only appeareances

    This country doesnt have a revenue problem, only an out of control, wasteful spending problem........

    I don't think so. Sallow offers historical evidence to support his claim. Your post predicates increased spending something the Obama administration has curtailed. Check the facts, under Reagan, Bush I and Bush II spending increased; under Carter, Clinton and now Obama spending has decreased.
