Mo' money

A bit of good news today, amid stories of perverted page poachers and bomb-building bozos: US budget revenues are way up, with FY2006 revenues at $2.407 trillion, the highest in history - continued proof that, counter-intuitively (at least if you're a liberal) broad tax cuts bring in more money to the Treasury, not less.

Now if only Republicans, the so-called party of fiscal constraint, could bring themselves to meaningfully cut spending, which is also at its highest point in history.

Whoops, spoke too soon about today being a good news day, even as I type: a helicopter has struck an NYC highrise, although it does not appear to be terrorist attack - yet. Watching the live video of the smoke over Manhattan is a bit of a kick in the gut, though.

  • urgh. That one caused my stomach to sink, too.

    How ironic that it ended up being the Yankees' pitcher? What an odd piece of news.

    I feel badly for his family, and for all the flashbacks that I'm sure tons of people dealt with.

  • I read this post and had to add--

    Republicans, the so-called party of fiscal constraint.

    Hah!

    I laugh. Thanks for that.
