Shhhh. Don't tell Beamer the feds collected a record $2.77 trillion in tax revenue this year.

Do you understand how that's a meaningless data point?
1) What is it if you adjust for inflation? Here's a hint: it's on par with 12 years ago
2) What is it as a portion of the total US income?

Throwing out a number in a vacuum and comparing it to past years is utterly ridiculous

You say that because our tax rate is lowest it's ever been that's why we have a deficit, say "spending doesn't matter." And now say record tax revenues also don't matter, economics aren't your strong point are they beamer?

TLDR if we weren't spending so much for the sake of it, we wouldn't be in the mess we are. BUT HURP DURP Liberal logic, SPENDING DOESN'T MATTER TAX THE 1% MOAR!!!
