    This is worthy of discussion. I would like to see it. Let's let the governors propose and their legislatures provide advice and consent.

    sometimes the best way to deal with scum is to cut through the crap. Ask Osama Bin Laden how effective that can be

    It would restore some balance to the federalist system that worked well until the "progressives" had a big hissy fit-the same asswipes who brought us class warfare in the guise of the income tax and prohibition

    I think you can solve the deficit quite nicely without any tax increases. But if we must have them let's widen the tax base so that everyone pays some federal income taxes.

    Alternative let's allocate votes based on the amount of taxes one pays. If you pay not taxes you don't get a vote on spending the money.

    that is a good alternative and would prevent ten fleas and five ticks from voting away every drop of the dog's blood. You are gonna get some hysterical howling from one vocal supporter of parasite rights though

    What do we get? August 2nd we get the New Independence Day. The one term Marxist president Obama has to pay our debts. After that he cannot spend what the nation does not have. I love it.
    hmmm have to pay our debts...ok....what do we let go? social security checks don't go out/are late, military doesnt get paid(i'm sure this will go over well with both of these groups, will turn the 2nd tuesday of nov 2012 into 'judgement day' for republicans)...what else...infrastructure spending(really, our bridges/roads will last without upkeep)...i have to chuckle when someone here hopes/prays this to pass without a deal being done....'cause they have no idea the havoc it will cause.

    Well. You are half right.

    Fortunately in order for America to win the Republicans need do...nothing. They should not make a deal if it means raising taxes. They can talk, talk, talk until August 2nd. And I hope they will. But they should not, under any circumstance agree to raise taxes. If they do then the one term Marxist president will be forced to pay our debts, on the one hand, and compelled to cut spending on the other. Awesome!
