    Since I have benefitted from Bush's tax cuts I must be a rich folk as well. To bad my bank account does not actually reflect this new found stature.

    Nothing comes for free. I'd like to see that chart against a chart of our record national debt.

    Who is talking about "nothing comes for free"? I do not think anyone has implied that there should not be taxes, but there is a point when they cross the line. How may months are you willing to work that basically go to the government? If you want to pay more I am sure you can find a way to "give" more. I personally have enjoyed the cuts and want to make them permanent. Tax cuts did not create the debt, and they were not a large % of the debt in 2003. In fact most have credited the cuts for some of the private sector growth due to consumer spending. Apples to Apples I do not believe that cutting taxes raises tax revenue, but in recessions or very slow or small growth if cutting taxes can spur expansion and a larger GDP they can pay for themselves for at least the short term until the growth levels out and will sustain itself on its own.
