Just once for the record and for our rip-off-in-chief, there have been NO tax cuts! Here's how it works in the real universe. Money from all revenue sources goes into the treasury to pay our bills. If there is money left over it can be returned to the taxpayers in the in the form of a rebate check or we can adjust the tax rate down to a level that equals the bills in the future. The “tax cuts” from this administration are theft. They have not only looted the treasury they have looted our children's future.

I'm not in favor of the enormous amount of deficit spending that we've seen during the last few years, but what you say here is just silly. By your definition, any bond for public infrastructure, real estate acquisition or other use would be theft. Proper use of debt in these areas is responsible for all levels of government. There will never be and there should not be a completely debt free government.
