Maybe spending is only half of the problem. Fiscal conservatism demands a discussion about increased revenue, would it not. Or, have I missed the economics 101 lesson on how fiscal conservatism somehow morphed into supply side/voodoo economics instead of responsible fiscal management. That doesn't say anything about only cutting spending. In fact, it seems to imply spending is fine so long as it is paid for. So, that means if you have a deficit, you can cut spending OR increase revenues. Right?
