20. There is one way to reduce the deficit and the GOP will not accept it

Each dollar in new spending must be offset with one dollar in new taxes.

If Trump wants to spend $20 billion, or $50 or $100 or whatever it is on his useless wall, that's disgusting. If he really wants it, it MUST be offset by a dollar-for-dollar concomitant tax increase. If they won't raise taxes to have the things they want, they don't need them.
