Yet, according to some it is never ever enough. There is no end game where people will say "ok everyone is paying enough", there will always be demands for more more more. Remember, back in the Clinton days it was a millionaire tax. Not even 20 years later we're down to 250k. Guess what's next? On top of that, 250k isn't even close to what it was when Clinton was President.

On top of that, spending just keeps outpacing revenue like Usain Bolt racing Stephen Hawking
