See, in a war, government spending is going to go up. That's just a fact of life. Because you're reconstructing another country, and sending your fighting men and women there, and supporting them, as well as running your own country. And it's ludicrous, in such an economic environment, to cut taxes, because you wind up running up a huge deficit. And McCain was just pointing out that wartime entails sacrifice, on the part of the people of the country going to war, i.e., not getting further tax cuts, because it would be fiscally irresponsible to cut revenue further at a time when spending is increasing.
