That is supply-side economics and it doesn't sound all that crazy to me but maybe I'm imprisoned by political ideology.

And that is a clear distinction between conservatives and liberals.

For the record, I never said I was against raising tax rates to achieve pre-recession revenues once the economy and joblessness had greatly improved and the federal budget was close to being balanced. With the sole purpose of paying down the national debt. I am against any tax increases to fund further spending recklessness.
Real wages in the U.S. have been largely stagnant since the 1970s and there is a widening income gap. Bad times ahead unless we can stop equating a progressive tax system with social engineering.

I'm as socially liberal as it gets. Fiscally, I'm moderately liberal, and getting further to the left everyday.
