Exactly. No one claims that increasing tax revenues will solve the problem on their own, but they certainly need to be part of the equation (frankly, the Bush tax cuts will need to be allowed to expire in their entirety once the recession is over). Dems have shown a willingness to give ground on spending cuts, but GOP refuses to give ground on letting the Bush tax cuts expire on the top two income brackets even though poll after poll shows 60+ percent support of that.
