Why aren't Democratic Congress members countering the bullshit?

The bullshit is that the only way to cut the deficit is to reduce spending. The Democratic response is that they ain't gonna do that.

But there are two ways to counter a deficit, whether it's our household spending or the national deficit: Increase revenue.

Dems should be pointing out that raising taxes on large corporations and the top 10% would put a substantial dent in the national deficit.

The Democratic response to requests to reduce spending should go something like, We agree to reduce defense spending and corporate handouts if our Republican friends (that's how they refer to each other) agree to raise taxes on people earning more than $750k.
