    I like the China one, but you would need to make them all slaves. Tis the only way.

    **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.

    This poll is based on a false premise.
    He doesn't need another dime of revenue - he needs only cut spending.

    Cut military spending by 50%. Annually use $50 billion for the resulting unemployment/retraining and the remaining $500 billion to reduce the deficit.

    Re: How Obama Can Get Money to Reduce Defict

    One of the GOP Candidates (Daniels?) spoke of using lottery monies to fund education. Maybe there's a way to play off that.

    I of course will always say "legalize marijuana."
