I do not like being "labeled" but I definitely fall into the Independent classification. I believe the only way out of the budget mess is a combination of Tax increases and huge cuts. It strikes me as very strange when many famous Liberals do everything they can to avoid paying taxes. Examples --John Kerry, Bono, Springstein and Bon Jovi just to name a very few in the news lately. On the other hand we now see many rino Repubs that have a hard time cutting anything !!
