Rescinding ALL of the Bush/Obama tax cuts solves 75% of the near term debt

But only 40% of the long term debt. Only fixing entitlements can fix that one. Per Nora o'Donnell.

1. and how much of that 60% of "long term debt" is held
by the people who bought war bonds / savings bonds and haven't cashed them in?

4. Depleting the debt and eliminating the interest payments will do the rest, so tax the rich
and give jobs to the poor. There is no better economic stimulus than workers spending money at 5:15 on Friday!

5. But rescinding them and then increasing the rate does wonders.
