My favorite joke of the week was when Nancy Pelosi stated with a straight face, that our Gov't "Does Not Have a Spending Problem". 
 
Well +Brian Carrell if we were collecting a bit more revenue, by which I mean a little more than the historic low we're at currently, then I may be able to entertain your argument. 
 
+Mark Bunbury Jr. ...how much is "a little"? When does the government stop raising revenues? You do realize that you are paying those revenues...right?
 
On a more serious note, there are economic studies which demonstrate ideal marginal income tax rates, some even suggesting that between 50-70% would be ideal for the top earners.  The Nobel Prize winning economist Emmanuel Saez and his partner found that 70% was ideal in their study.  I'm not opposed to that.  So the government can stop there.
