    All you guys think you know the answer..then tell us....
    1) no loop holes on the upper class
    2) no profit and gain if you are in congress or a senator...
    3) streamline the budget..not bs programs..

    Tax the rich like Clinton did. They keep amassing wealth that is lost because they just hoard it and it never gets back into the economy.

    Also stop spending on these wars where we go to other countries and waste Billions of dollars a day. It only keeps gas prices up for the Bush oil men and makes Cheney richer with Haliburton.

    Taxing the wealthy is a speck of sand on the beach of lefty bullshit.


    How about we spay and neuter the slimy underbelly of America?
    Offer them $25,000 in cash?
    We have generations of baby makers living off the tax payers.
    Occasionally they give us a power forward or a hip-hop artist.
    We can import them from Eastern Europe now

    I'd take all the government surplus stuff to Detroit and sell it to Les on Hardcore Pawn. Then, I'd take a bunch of the gold out of Ft. Knox and sell it to Cash for Gold until were in the black. There, it's so simple.

    No gold left in Fort Knox. They refuse to allow an audit. Fight it tooth and nail every time it's brought up.

    There is no way to fix the debt problem without completely wrecking the entire world economy. What needs to happen is to plan out future development of the world. Each nation must be allowed some of the spoils of the development. We will also have to honestly look at controlling the population because automation is taking away opportunities for many people to work. People may still get all of their financing from the government, but nobody should get it without contributing something to society unless they are truly disabled. People on government assistance should be sterilized until they have been able to support themselves for 5 years.

    eliminate all foreign
    after all this is done if the budget is not balanced i am for raising taxes for all.

    1. No one on welfare can vote. It is not to the benefit of the Country to have people who can vote themselves money through the democrats.
    2. Voter ID.

    On Thanksgiving, my grandma said the only reason she voted for Obama is because her insurance and pill prices are way down..

    I'm pretty sure things will sort themselves out after the massive global conflict we're headed for.

    There is a big difference on saving money on taxes, on money that you have earned, and losers taking welfare from the taxpayers and voting for candidates who favor them over the taxpayers.

    1. Legalize drugs for recreational use. Sell it at the existing pharmacy network. Tax the shit out of it. Get caught with non-tax paid recreational drugs pay quadruple the tax. Can't pay the tax, no jail time, just let the IRS take over the case.
    2. Drug test welfare recipients. Fail the test, lose the benefits.
    3. Unwed mothers must disclose the father of their child if they receive government assistance(welfare, foodstamps, public housing, free daycare, etc). Force the father of the child to pay for the upkeep of that child or risk forced sterilization.
    4. Unwed underage mothers must comply with # 3 but also have to get a college degree, paid for by the father of the child, and must complete the degree AND start working a full time job before the child's 8th birthday. Sterilization for those that do not comply.
    5. Any country that let's it's people protest by burning the U.S. flag will no longer be eligible for U.S. aid.
    6. Any religious organization that publicly participates in political endeavors shall lose their tax exempt status AND this will be strictly enforced. This includes endorsing a candidate or political party or proposing legislation at state/federal level.
