Re: Higher taxes are good for the economy?

It will raise revenues from a source that is more able to pay than Mrs. housewife.  No need to give mr. investor an economic advantage that Mrs. housewife can't enjoy.

There is way more to the economy than the federal government's budget

Or is it your contention that a balanced budget for the federal government is the economy?

Re: There is way more to the economy than the federal government's budget

Many republicans have been claiming that our deficits are doing great injury to the economy. You don't agree with your fellow ideologues?

Re: There is way more to the economy than the federal government's budget

Actually I believe that deficits are cause by unsustainable and unconstitutional spending. And I would say most republicans would agree with that.

 

But it still begs the question of how the general economy would react if we raised the amount of taxes collected by the govenment to sustain these areas of spending.

In didn't say I would sustain this level of spending. We would stop interferring in other nations. Stop the nation building and stop the wars of choice.

 

We would continue being a strong military force but we would no long spend as much as all other nations combined
