3. exactly. There are lots of ways save money without stealing from working families.

1) A 1% financial transaction tax.

2) Lift the cap on payroll taxes.

3) Let the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire.

4) Austerity for defense contractors.

5) Stop putting people in jail for non-violent drug crimes.

6) A single-payer health insurance plan would save billions.

7) Allow Medicare to negotiate a bulk price for the cost of drugs.

etc.

All of these options should be part of the negotiations.
