On the one hand, you have the Left that insist the ONLY way to address our deficit is to raise more revenue; certainly this is a fair argument that deserves consideration.
On the other hand, you have the Right that insist the ONLY way to address our deficit is to cut spending; there will be no raising of the tax rate. Again, a fair position worthy of consideration.
My solution is simple.
The Democrats should let the Republicans claim that they will not raise taxes. In exchange for this, the Democrats should agree to cut spending.
How do we do this?
End this ridiculous practice that’s known as tax credits.
No new taxes.
