Fiscal responsibility

Good story in the NYTimes today on the budget clash and priorities:

"But veterans of past budget wars say that discretionary spending for domestic programs, which make up just 15 percent of the federal budget, cannot continue to bear the brunt without significant implications for government services. “They’ve gone way past fat and are cutting into muscle,” said Bruce R. Bartlett, who was a Treasury official in the Reagan administration."

It is time for responsible action: raising taxes to meet our needs rather than sacrificing the future for the benefit of the few now.
