    The Necessity of the Fight

    Here’s something no one wants to talk about, whether Republican or Democrat. Well, I should not say no one, but pretty much every Republican and Democrat who participated in the terms of the debate over the debt ceiling has ignored this.Government spending is going above 25% of GDP.Tax revenue, up until the last two years has averaged 18.5% GDP.Let’s give the Democrats, for the sake | Read More »

    Here’s the deal — I think we should hold out till after August 3rd because I think August 2nd is an imaginary deadline.I likewise think the super committee is going to raise taxes — and raise them in a big way.Also, I’m convinced the GOP is lying to itself on this plan.All that said, we’re not going to get a better deal now.
