8. You Cannot Talk About Taxes Without Talking About The Deficit
That's how Kerry needs to frame this. We're in a war, we're running a deficit, and we're not creating jobs, so we need those that can bear the brunt of a tax hike to pay their share. Also, Kerry could attach a tax credit for the wealthy that invest in domestic businesses that create jobs in the U.S.
