Here's how you solve the deficit
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 01:19 AM by steelmania75
1. Medicare for all

2. Tax the rich/close corporate tax loopholes

3. Cut defense/end the wars/end war on drugs

Man, that was hard.

This should be the message for REAL fiscal responsibility.

2. Anyone who stands in the way of those actions is part of the problem.
It is simple enough. But it would be a major tectonic shift underneath the business community. I'm all for it!

3. Mmm, Crisco ad... Ohh yeah, and do all you mentioned, and up the estate tax.
If they can't take it with them... they might have to get more creative about spending it.

If they get too creative, just up the tax rate...

Ohh, and a couple of guillotinings wouldn't be unwelcome either... you know, just throwing that out there... ;)

4. I would be interested to see what tax rate at what level would fix things.
We never see the real numbers behind these ideas.

5. Might be just a few nuances to add, but
you are off to a great start!
