Currently the stalemate involves republican legistators refusing to pass any tax increases, and a democratic Governor who wants to pass a tax increase on people making $1,000,000 or more. The small size of this pool (around 3,000 people) leads to a new idea on the concept of taxing people more based on how much they make. ASK THEM. I'm sure you can identify them quick enough to have a special election, limited to the millionaires only. Have them vote on if they are willing to pay more to close out the budget impasse. Make it a secret ballot, and have both sides in the government pledge to abide by the results.
