Exactly.Neither solution is going to fix the problem. It will do no good to increase taxes on the rich if at the same time you are increasing spending on social programs. And vice versa - lowering taxes without lowering expenditures is not going to do anything to bring down our debt.
What Trump did: cut taxes, but didn’t cut spending.
What Biden will likely do: raise taxes but not cut spending.
What needs to happen and neither one did or will do? Cut spending, drastically.
