Democrats say they want to raise as much as $1 trillion in new revenues through tax reform later this year to balance Republican demands to slash mandatory spending.
Correct me if I'm wrong: $917 billion plus $620 billion equals $1,537 billion, or $1.5 trillion. Which is less that the $2 trillion stated. The "interest savings" supposedly will make up the difference but in 2011 we spent a total of $227 billion.
917+620+227 does not equal 2,000
I've said it before and will say it again, "How can we trust anyone?"
