QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“You cannot solve this nation’s fiscal problems without increased revenue.” –Robert E. Rubin, Treasury secretary under President Bill Clinton

“We cannot save the Iraqis from themselves. The only way for Iraqi leaders to squarely face that reality is for President Bush to tell them that the United States will begin a phased redeployment of our forces within four to six months.” –Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich.

“I’m looking forward to a brave new world where the Democrats raise our taxes and raise the white flag to the terrorists here and abroad.” –Joshua, Waterglass Contributor (in an email dated November 9, 2006)

    I find it amazing that a finance expert like former Treasury secretary Robert Rubin would suggest increasing taxes when it has been proven time and time again that lowering taxes increases tax revenue since more business revenue is produced.

    Someone could make a ton of money with a study that shows the exact point where tax revenue and business revenue are at their maximum. There has got to be a sweet spot where the best of both worlds can be reached.

    I… I think I’ve been misquoted and taken out of context. But I stand behind the comments I made and will continue to do so until such time when they are rendered untrue.

    Thank you.
