Only 2 parts to the equation.
Income and Outgo.
Any bill that solely reduces Outgo (spending) and doesn’t negatively impact national defense should be passed.
Any bill that solely reduces income (taxes) that doesn’t do so in a completely unfair way (special interest groups) should be passed.
Any bill that reduces income (taxes) and increases Outgo (spending) should be voted down unless there is very very good reason for passing it.
It’s really simple, the government needs to balance things. Take in less taxes AND reduce spending. Reduce spending FIRST, in my opinion.
