    Congress has a few interesting choices coming up:

    1. Extend the tax cuts for everyone?
    2. Extend the tax cuts for the middle-class?
    3. Bonus question: Extend unemployment benefits for the unemployed?

    Take the poll.....oh BTW, any money you give you need to borrow from China and it gets added to the Debt...so you need to pay more interest on that borrowed money.....

    Cuts spending first, then worry about raising taxes.

    I think Washington needs to tighten their belts first before they start giving us the shaft.

    How about we start by insisting that our congress critters pay the actual taxes that the rest of us do.

    People should be made to pay for the government they're getting, when they're getting it.

    What he said. In absolute dollar terms, government spending has increased nearly 30% in three years. If we just rolled spending back to 2007 levels, we'd knock out 60% of the deficit in one fell swoop. The next steps would be to sunset programs and reform entitlements.

    And, the economy would actually start growing.

    Tell that to the 50% that don't pay federal income taxes. The rest of us are paying, and quite dearly.
