From 2003 (the full implementation of the Bush tax cuts) to 2007 (when Dems took over congress) federal revenue increased every single year. The deficits also decreased every year after 2004.
Revenues didn't start decreasing until 2008 (mid bubble burst) but deficits skyrocketed to previously unheard of trillion dollar levels. Revenues have only recently gotten back to 2007 levels and beyond but deficits are still historically high, though slightly better.
The US, in general, doesn't have a revenue problem, tax breaks or no tax breaks, it has an enormous spending problem because the Federal government tries to be all things to all people instead of leaving well enough alone and letting the States deal with their own stuff the way the system was meant to work.
For every level of government added to 'solving' a problem you add untold additional millions to pay for the myriad of unaccountable bureaucrats and you're just as likely to cause more trouble in the solution than the original problem because those bureaucrats are just too far removed. As everyone has seen, if you add a new dept at the federal level to deal with an issue it's almost impossible to get rid of that dept later on when either the original issue has been resolved or it's been shown the dept itself is either ineffective or redundant.
