Like most people, I assume you have some source of revenue - a job, or social security or investment income. If you lose your job, and thus your revenue, you will go into debt unless you drastically cut your spending. On the other hand, you can spend freely without going into debt, as long as you maintain a high income. This is not a hard concept. I dare say a 2nd grader could understand it.

Your solution is to cut spending. I'm all for it. Please list the programs you would cut that would make a meaningful dent in the budget.

You cannot be serious.

Let me know when Trump abolishes the IRS and Congress repeals the 16th Amendment.

That's what I said. Cut spending.

Cut all of the spending that the US Constitution's Article 1 Section 8 doesn't specifically allow. That means the abolition of the US Dept of Education, Title I spending, federal public assistance programs, etc., spending. Those are all states' responsibilities, and only applicable per states' populations approval, per the US Constitution.

The truth about corporations. The working folks want corporations to pay their fair share and nothing more.

Until then, we ought to pay for what we've bought, instead of sticking our kids with the bill.

Taxes as in tariffs on goods. Not income taxes.

Import taxes are still taxes. And ALL taxation is theft.
