"I have consistently stated that, due to my conservative principles, I am not in favor of tax increases. I have also consistently said I am in favor of significant tax reform to lower tax rates and generate additional revenues. Those reforms should be on the table in this debt/deficit debate. However, this would only be acceptable in return for entitlement reforms from the other side that truly fix our long-term spending problem."
