How do you cut taxes and cut spending?
The government(state and federal) spends money on things we all need.. law enforcement,roads and bridges,education,military,healthcare, jobs, etc. Things everyone wants. Cutting taxes would mean we would have less money to pay for all of these things. Our economy would shrink, our infrastructure would deteriorate,we would have no influence around the world, and we would become a third world country.

We become a Third World Country by DEBT. Government produces nothing, Government consumes. Big Government means the end of the free enterprise system. It leeds to Third World Mentality. That is where we are headed.

Unfortunately, government also spends an ess load of money on things we don't want and don't need. I say cut taxes, give the people their money, give the government less money to waste. The economy will boom, like it did in the 80's

There are a few examples of cutting tax RATES but producing increased tax REVENUE. And government expenditure is hardly limited to "things we need" - there's a lot of waste, a lot of pork, a lot of entitlements.

The govt also wastes more money then they spend on the things we really need. Pelosi spends over 1/4 of a million dollars almost every single weekend to fly home, all taxpayer money. Oboma just spent more than that to take photos of airforce 1, which could have been taken on the ground. And hang on to your hats, as... More

No, you are wrong. Currently, the federal government is overshadowing state obligations through red tape that essentially ensures you are indebted at a federal level ALONG with at state level. FEDERAL taxes are out of control. They have been for years. Now we are being strong-armed into more. STATE government should... More

Quite simple - cut things we need. We don't need a huge military. Military spending can be cut in half easily. Besides, that's one of those socialist programs - and we all know how much America hates socialist programs... More

They also spend money (lots of money) on things that we don't need. Cut ALL of that and we could cut taxes, spending across the board and probably increase services.

To cut taxes and government spending, we need to bring the companies that received tax breaks if they operated out of country, back to America. They hire more people, more people pay taxes, and since they are working, with a good income, they become less reliant upon the government for assistance. The government will... More

The two biggest pork barrel projects we have right now are the military and interest to foreign debt. Get those two things under control and we can balance the budget without having to gut infrastructure.

Wasteful spending, like U.S. taxpayer money for abortions for nontaxpayers that don't live in this country? Thats just one example.
Answered By: Papa Chester - 5/14/2009
No it doesn't, not at all. The more jobs that are created, the more people pay taxes, the more you can cut taxes. We have no tax money because thousands of would be employed workers are now soldiers spending fortunes to fight bush's oil wars, and then coming back wounded and needing care for the rest of their lives...
