I don't get the disconnect between government revenues and taxes. That..is how government funds itself..mainly through taxation. Cut taxes and there were be less money to spend. And we've been spending money like crazy lately; two wars, a brand new agency, a brand new entitlement, bailing out corporate fuck ups and saving our banking, financial and insurance institutions. And this year..more butter. An extention of the Bush taxs cuts..yay! Drying up the government, as Grover Norquist suggests, is going to make this country look like Guatemala..without the charm. Krugman's take: As this last Snowstorm in NYC proved..the people that complain the loudest are people that have that tax/finance the goverment disconnect. Less revenue = Less Services. Everytime.
