I never studied economic theory beyond a class I had in high school, but it doesn't take a degree from the London School of Economics to know that tax cuts alone don't lead to prosperity. Every time in recent memory that we've tried massive tax cuts, we've gotten a recession soon after: Reagan in the 1980's and Bush in the 2000's, and we've had some of the best economic times when we've have comparatively high taxes; i.e. the 1950's, when the top tax rate was a whopping 91% under that socialist Dwight Eisenhower. What we need is a balance of both revenues and spending, and so far, all the Republican offerings have been unbalanced... in every sense of the the word.
