    Because they have to maintain a fine balance between pleasing their base, still having money to spend like a drunk teenager who got daddy's credit card, and leaving the tax code as is so both them and the Democrats can politicize it.

    Apparently tax increases won't help either. It's hard to figure out the GOP position. Obama has offered to cut spending and the GOP wants, apparently to do nothing on the revenue side.

    Odd.

    I actually support them on that front. Spending in washington has become an addiction, and the last thing we want to do is be an enabler. They have to prove to me that they've kicked the habit of gross overspending before I will ever support giving them MORE money to blow on bullshit.

    Not the issue? Hell, its our money.

    You just said the government takes in plenty of money so why not cut it back and give tax breaks...you know...it supposedly grows the economy when we do that sort of thing and apparently the economy isn't growing enough...righter sucka mucka?
