    I agree with the statement, but I have a feeling we have different opinions on which half will not feel the pain.

    Like most sane people have been saying all along -- a combination of tax raises and budget cuts. Unfortunately, there are no sane people in either of the "big two."

    Look, if I knew it was coming with spending cuts and would solve our deficit problem, I'd be OK with higher taxes. I'll take the hit to put our country on firm financial footing. Lets see who else will do it.

    Since that's unlikely, I think the car race is clearly the answer. Or we could just all accuse each other of racism until the budget fixes itself.

    Cut and gut government.
    Return power to the states.
    Phase out entitlements.
    Lower taxes to stimulate business. (fewer unemployed eat less revenue and provide more to the government).
    Return the unemployment laws to those Clinton signed.
    Repeal ObamaKare.

    In short... Limited government.

    Which entitlements would you choose?
    Im all for sending most ALL of the power back to the States. That would be fantastic!
    Keep unemployment to where it is now until the economy gets to where it should be
    Get every single ILLEGAL alien the hell out of the US
    Cut corporate taxes in half while increasing the taxes of the top 5% by 100%
    Fix healthcare by limiting costs of all parma, and medical related products while also capping care givers liability and also capping how much they charge. Tough pill. That needs to be swollowed
    Then kill the 1990s GOP / Obamas healthcare bill
    CORPORATE GREED AND UNION GREED
    DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS

    how does the world lose that? governments lose that but the owners of the money keep it

    **Raise taxes on the wealthy.

    **Nationalize oil and coal companies, pay off debt with their excess profits. Slowly phase out oil and coal while transitioning their workforce to green and renewable energy.

    **Tax bonus compensation over $99K @ 75%

    **Tax anual salary over $5M @ 90%

    Those last two suggestions would solve many, many problems.

    Since the 1970's there has been a massive shift in power from Capital (people with money to invest in companies, specifically powerful shareholders) AND Talent (CEO's, CFO's and highly compensated athletes and performers). This shift has resulted in Talent getting vastly overpaid for less than successful work, failing upwards, etc.

    Taxing this overpaid compensation would bring in more revenue and incentivize Capital Investors to demand their money be spread around more, expanding the workforce, R&D, and health insurance benefits for the workforce.

    Middle management should demand higher compensation.

    making those who want the rich to pay more start paying their share of the tax bills

    that would not only raise lots of money it would create a massive deterrent to voting for more big spending politicians

    your desires for confiscatory tax rates are expected.
