Both political parties are out of control. In the past we had the option to tax and spent paying as we go, or borrowed and spent delaying payment for our kids. The problem now is because of corporate and political decisions made from greed over the past few decades, spending is so far out of control that no amount of tax increases will solve the problem. The sooner we allow our economy to fall to a level supported by our capicity to support ourselves, the sooner we can get through the tough times awaiting us and start real growth. Good luck.
