freedom, they’d have to dramatically cut spending just to bring the budget into balance and only then would they be in a position to cut taxes. The reality is that what we pay in taxes now doesn’t come close to covering what is spent. I just filed my tax returns yesterday (Federal, MA & VT) and am appalled at how much tax I paid in total, and none too happy knowing that half the population doesn’t pay any Federal income tax, yet complain that the rest of us are supposed to pay more.
