What the country needs to do is to decide what we want to do! Go to the moon! Go to mars! Have the greatest military in the world! Have everyone have great health insurance. Have the best educated citizens in the world! Save our environment ! Have save drinking water! Have great infrastructure! Etc.. To be the greatest country in the world takes money! To be told that we can do this and cut taxes at the same time is not possible! If we are going to do those things then we should raise taxes to pay for them.
