6. I said cut jobs hardly at all

 

in proportion to the $1tn savings the job cuts are tiny.

Some of that money can be used far more productively to create jobs - cut tax rates for marginal tax payers.
The lower paid will spend that money given back in tax cuts, they are on the breadline.
And they would spend a lot of it on American goods & services - not hide it away in tax shelters.

Raise tax thresh holds, or keep the current 10% tax band at 10% instead of raising it to the proposed 15%, or stop taxing tips, or some combination of all three.

Proposed tax changes for 2013
