Borrowing rates are low iff foreign investors' confidence is high. Confidence is high iff deficit is low. Deficit is reduced by increasing taxes or reducing spendings. If taxes are increasing or spendings are being reduced, then deficit is being reduced. Our ideology prohibits us to increase taxes. Taxes are not increasing. Therefore, to keep borrowing rates low it is necessary to reduce spendings.

Assign variables and design a truth table to prove the logic above.

@IWasRaisedOnEDM,
[(B iff C). (C iff D).( (T v S) >D).(Not T)]>[B>S]

You need a 32 line truth table.
Taking B=1 and S=0, show this makes the premises false. (Method of Backward Fell Swoop)
