I’m not a fan of taxes anymore than the next person. At the same time, I really dislike being irresponsible in how we deal with our national finances.
We have a fiscal problem in this country. Our problem came as a result of having two wars start at the same time we did very large tax cuts. In fact, it was the first time in our countries history that we not only started down the road of wars; we decided not to even try to pay for them.
