Joe has a take home income of $20k. His annual expenses are rent/mortgage of $12k, food $3k, gas $2k, utilities $3k, phone $1k, cable/internet $1k, car payment $3k, credit card $5k. His expenses exceed his take home pay by $10k! What can he do to not only balance his income and expenses, but dig himself out of the credit card hole? If he cuts out his car and walks everywhere, shuts off his phone and internet, that still leaves him in a $3k / year deficit! Can't cut out food or rent..... So, what's the answer? How about getting a second job! Increase your annual income! It's the only way! Then, once he pays off his credit card, he can drop the second job. Now, substitute second job for increased revenue (ie, tax increase). Once we dig ourselves out of the hole we created, we can drop taxes down again. This is simple math. Get the politics and partisanship out of the equation, and it's the ONLY solution. Cut back on expenditures AND increase revenue (taxes). Whining about tax increases is counter productive. It's a necessary step at this point.
