Well, cutting the Bush tax cuts and closing the tax loopholes on wealthy individuals will help, won't it?
As would removing subsidies for corporates, penalising them for sending jobs offshore, cash to tax havens, and the various other rorts they indulge in to get (as happens in in some cases) their taxes down to 0%.
Or, FFS, get billions in tax breaks even when they are making billions in profits.
Actually they all appear to look like solutions. The tax loopholes for the rich are an exaggeration......and the tax generated on all the listed measures still won't pay the interest on the US short term debt.
As stated earlier, the US federal budget needs to be severely amputated.
That's the only way this gets fixed and it ain't gonna happen. There is no one in elected office now who would gamble their political careers and probably lose in the process.
