Re: John C. C. Payson, UT"Courageous Republicans would admit that tax
increases are necessary."Courageous Republicans believe that
until our government stops flushing our hard earned money down the toilet they
don't deserve the money they've already got.Giving more
money to the federal government is no different than giving more booze to an
alcoholic in hopes it will cure his drinking problem.
Courageous Democrats would admit that significant parts of the budget have to be
cut. Courageous Republicans would admit that tax increases are necessary.
Together they could compromise and come up with an alternative to the looming
fiscal cliff. Unfortunately none of the above made it past their
respective party primaries. Our last hope is to convert a few
partisans to care more about their nation than their reelections.
