The Republican Party and common sense thinking people in this country must maintain their core message. The core message is that the Federal Government has an unsustainable spending problem resulting in crippling deficits and an overbearing national debt that is a drag on America’s economy. To eliminate the deficit, government spending must be cut. Since entitlement spending on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid is nearly 60% of the budget and growing significantly faster than national income, entitlement spending must be reduced. Increased taxes are not a viable option because history has shown that Congress uses increased tax receipts to increase government programs; not to pay down deficits. History also shows that increasing tax rates does not raise tax revenues in the long run.
