    Economics 101:

    Lower taxes, get Government out of the way and revenues go up.

    Raising taxes leads to a throttling down of business and investment which leads to decreased revenues.

    This is very simple and it works every time it’s tried. The problem comes in when Government tries to “give” to non-productive members of society. Government can’t “give” anything to anybody without taking it from someone else. You can only “eat the rich” for so long before they just stop producing, investing, and spending. It’s so damned simple!
