"The U.S. will never be able to afford the kind of welfare benefits enjoyed by Europeans unless it raises taxes, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said."
And we're not trying to have the same social benefits as Europe. They get paid 6 week vacation there, college is free, they have universal healthcare, etc. so I don't understand what she's really trying to say we cant afford those benefits.
But I do agree when she says, "That kind of deficit is not sustainable for any country and not for the United States either" so we do need to raise taxes and cut spending at the same time.

America is designed to keep the 1% rich. They want the rest to of the populous to be like rats chasing cheese.
The funny thing is, most Americans would rather not be like Europe even though Europe has much better quality of life.

high taxes normally work in homogenous societies...people dont mind paying to help others who look exactly like them...
in a melting pot like the U.S...with various racial tensions, i doubt we'd get a majority to sign off on higher taxes...once we get past the bull !! of "race"....we may be able to move towards social welfare by sharing our revenue....you can't just jumped to higher taxes...you need to fix the state of jobs and other sectors...it's deeper than simply just raising taxes...you must first raise national morale so they can trust you when you propose higher taxes...
