Then let's begin taxing the 47% (or whatever the actual number is) who do not pay federal income taxes.
Then let's eliminate every department that is extra-constitutional. Let's fire the people, sell off the furniture, sell the buildings and the lands. Repeal the extra-constitutional regulations.
Then let's sell off the massive holdings of federal lands.
For starters. Next week we can think of some more things to do to divest the federal government of its enormous power.

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
I think the Republicans should just walk away. Let the one term Marxist president Obama come to them with a plan, in writing. Reject it if it increases tax rates on the people who are already paying. Let him come with another plan. Reject it if it fails to cut the 25% growth in government we have experienced since this regime took control. Repeat until we have a good deal. Or walk away from any deal.
It happened to the UK, it happened in Canada and now it's happening in the States. It's been going on since taxes were invented.
Maybe that should be taught in schools.
In a way, we resemble a lot of Americans from just a few years ago... we're sitting in a nice big house on a 2% ARM, knee deep in debt, and are arguing about whether we should sell the patio furniture or pull in a few extra hours at work to make ends meet in the short term... Assuming of course that we'll soon be pulling in the big bucks, long before that loan adjusts.
