Are increased tax rates on the higher earnings of the rich THE answer? Of course not, but they would be a very important part of the solution which will also include cuts on those least well positioned to endure them.
There should be NO tax increases until they are accompanied with real, tangible NOW cuts. Reagan was swindled by the democrats on this already, fool me twice...
