I watched the segment but am still not very impressed. Two uses of the term revenue enhancement tell me that Brewer continues to pursue slight of tongue instead of selling her position honestly. She actually did say raising taxes once for which she gets credit but hey if you think taxes need to be raised then I say you should say it and sell it, not use weasel words.
If only given the choice between a temporary tax increase and borrowing, which would you choose?
My view is that since I don't support borrowing for current expenses and I don't support increasing taxes for current expenses that neither answer is acceptable. Borrowing is just delayed taxation and of the two borrowing is the worse option of the two as people today get the benefit but taxpayers down the road will be forced to pay for it.
Exactly why I don't understand why that's the best option they have come up with. They are so set on getting to the outcome, they don't understand the road they are really taking to get there.
