Throughout history, all wars were financed with and increase in taxes. However, the Bush Administration, has used tax cuts to help finance the current war on terror. This ideology has help create large deficits and fears of baby boomers without Social Security benefits and other domestic programs. Personally, I feel Budget surpluses, and or, deficits are merely projections and cannot be calculated precisely over X amount of years. Since the outset of the war, the markets and the economy have flourished. Equities have continued to set new highs and the unemployment rate continues to drop. Ironically, tax cuts create greater tax revenue which seems contrary to common logic. Setting your opinions on the war and Bush aside for a moment. What is you opinion on tax cuts for economic prosperity and war financing. How concerned are you about the current account deficit and a declining dollar?
