ran 3.4 miles
Above is the average amount of tax dollars you stand to lose in 2013, depending on what state you're in, if the Bush tax cuts expire.

I took the liberty of adding up the sum of money the average individual in each of the fifty states and Washington D.C. stands to lose ($120,214) and divided it by 51. That number is $2,357. If you multiply that number by a rough population of 314,159,265...let's make this easier with round numbers---lets round all the way up to $3,000 and all the way up to 315,000,000 Americans. That would give the federal government 945 billion more tax dollars. Even if Barack Obama ended the Bush tax cuts completely across the board of earners it would still only be enough to knock out a mere 16.93% of our national debt. Obama's stimulus package was nearly $800 billion---only $145 billion short of taking every single federal tax dollar we are saving from the Bush tax cuts in the entire country for a year and spending it on something that had so few results. And this is not even considering the hundreds of other things tax dollars get spent on from welfare programs all the way up to national defense.

Point is, why are we arguing about who should be taxed more and how much they should be taxed when it clearly makes no difference in contrast to how far behind our nation has slipped economically. Our national debt is out of control and our president is doing nothing to stop it. His latest budget did not receive one single vote in the Senate---and the Democrat-led Senate has not even made a budget in over three years. Who lives like this?

The government doesn't have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem.
