Remember those projected deficits?

Here are the facts from the NY Times:
On Tuesday, White House officials are expected to announce that the tax receipts will be about $250 billion above last year's levels and that the deficit will be about $100 billion less than what they projected six months ago. The rising tide in tax payments has been building for months, but the increased scale is surprising even seasoned budget analysts and making it easier for both the administration and Congress to finesse the big run-up in spending over the past year.
For all those certain that the 2003 tax cuts were going to sink the government in red ink, the reverse has occured. Since tax cuts have spurred revenue growth every time they have been tried in the US and in every country that has tried them abroad, you think we might be catching on by now: taxation is bad for the economies health. But don't worry. Next time tax cuts are proposed, I am sure there will be no shortage of politicians and bureaucrats predicting the end of civilization as we know it.
