When Obama advocates a "balanced" package of spending cuts and revenue-raisers over 10 years, his definition of balance is spending cuts in about a 3:1 ratio to revenue increases.

Obama uses terms like "a balanced approach" and it has a nice, fair, even and equitable sound to it. Makes you want to agree with him. But facts are facts - we don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.

Just because you keep repeating this mantra doesn't make it so....you are in the minority.

The majority of the American people think we need more revenue....and now even the business community (the jobs creators), led by the CEO of Goldman Sachs agrees that we need a balanced approach and has called for revenue increases along with spending cuts.


Just to be clear....I agree that we have a spending problem; but we need additional revenue too.... the 3:1 ratio seems about right.
