I'm a fiscal conservative, too, Anonymous. However, the income of our society has shifted evermore to the very rich over the last two decades. This has made it extremely difficult for low and moderate income families to survive, while the rich get much richer and don't pay their fair share in taxes.
Is there a middle ground?
