Pretty obvious, isn't it?

The discussion should be about raising revenue, or cutting the war orgy.

In particular, this is how Americans want to do it:

"The most popular: placing a surtax on federal income taxes for those who make more than $1 million per year (81 percent said that was acceptable), eliminating spending on earmarks (78 percent), eliminating funding for weapons systems the Defense Department says arent necessary (76 percent) and eliminating tax credits for the oil and gas industries (74 percent). " - http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41876558/ns/politics

This is a no-brainer.

This is how to win in 2012.
