Questions for the tea party

July 27, 2011

I have some questions for the House Tea Party Caucus:

First, how do you plan to reduce the federal debt through spending cuts alone (i.e. no revenue increases) without destroying Medicare and seriously damaging Social Security?

Second, if tax increases are "job killers," then aren't spending cuts "job killers" as well?

Finally, if tax cuts are "job creators," then aren't spending increases "job creators" too? So why is one of them a good thing and the other not?
