Sen. Landrieu: Why is it not that some of my colleagues on the other side will acknowledge the reality that the revenues coming in to the government are the lowest level since President Eisenhower was the president. What is it about that reality that the other side of the aisle will not embrace? Is it that they don't believe the fact? Do they disagree with that fact? Do they have some other facts to put on the table? Because if they do, I will listen to that. I've not heard anyone question that. So that is a fact I would like to start with because it helps us frame the debate. Which is, we can not rearrange the passengers on the Titanic and suggest that we're doing anyone a favor. We have to bring more revenues. And $600 billion from my friend from Missouri, is not enough.
....and you thought that argument was over after democrats got their tax hike on the rich, shame on you.
