    I am willing to pay higher taxes. I am willing to allow my democratically elected representatives in government to do the job they were elected to do.

    Not me... not that I have any choice. My democratically elected representatives have proven to me that they will spend the treasury broke to keep themselves in office.

    Not interested, I am willing to forgo my "entitlements", in order to reduce the deficit though.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I'd be willing to pay higher taxes in return for a balanced budget and those making more than me not being able to game the system.

    I am willing to pay more for infrastructure, because I think we so desperately need updating, but with a couple caveats... 1) that the extra money actually goes as extra money to infrastructure, and doesn't get offset by taking other general fund money originally meant for infrastructure and spend it elsewhere, and 2) that it be at the state level (or lower), not the federal level.
