    If I had the option, I would cut off the Federal Government's ability to borrow and inflate.

    No, I'd tell them to stop spending and stop wasting the money they already collect. Like, duh.

    Nope. They don't know how to properly manage what they already have and besides they would probably give it to some egg head so they could do a study on how Muslims feel after they take a shit.

    Since they have proven beyond all shadow of a doubt that they are not responible with money, I wouldn't give them the sweat off my balls.

    No. Though I would not object to a 5% sur tax on total gross income paid by every taxpayer in America for the exlusive use of debt service. 10% for every elected official in America.

    Seeing as I give more than 5% of my income to worthy charities, I have no reason to consider giving it to the government.

    Sort of dismisses the fallacy that the government needs to collect from the people so that those in need can be taken care of.

    The more they TAKE from me for the causes of THIER choice, the less I have to voluntarily GIVE to the worthy causes of MY choice.

    They bring in more than enough money. They need to live within the budget just like the rest of us.
    They are doing the same thing that they do with education more money to solve the problem's, it has never worked so far.

    It's early in the poll but with all of the love for raising taxes out there by Obama supporters I am surprised that there aren't any Yes votes.
