    Yes, but there's a point when cutting taxes no longer increases revenue. Look at those numbers. If we lowered them to, let's say, 10%, tax revenue would decrease by a tenfold.
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.
