Anything that includes revenue increases should be off the table until there is a new budget spending freeze. Freezing the budget and locking out new spending is a compromise. What good is it to cut if you're just piling more on the plate?

"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
