    the problem with the federal government is that liberals and conservatives can only agree to borrow more money. they can't get enough consensus to get the deficit under control. a natural compromise would be to cut spending for conservatives while raising taxes for liberals. of course those conservatives who signed pledges never to raise taxes are hurting the country with their uncompromising ways. 

    i would support that measure. who disagrees and why?

    As long as we have a high moody's rating, we can borrow more.

    the tax system and loops holes have been a bane to the working class for a very long, long time but it benefits the rich in government so they remain and exist in the first place.  There's plenty of facebook posts etc about the net worth of politicians, even Bernie Sanders.  They want everyone to pay more, share more....except for themselves naturally, it's easy spending other people's money.  This is a major reason I want government control at a minimum, they are only self serving in spite of all the pandering promises they never intend to keep.

    The rich is shit upon by jealous lazy fucks on a daily basis. It's hard enough to convince poor people to buy their products before they can make it to the corner store to blow it on cheap booze, fast drugs, and government lottery tickets.

    If your wanting to raise taxes and cut spending, I'm fine with that.  We have a debt to pay off.
