Even Democrats have to admit that increasing taxes on the rich (as if they pay taxes to begin with) is only a band-aid on the larger problem. Increasing taxes isn't the only way to generate revenue. To truly get it up there, we have to encourage more job creation. So my question to you is, if you had the ability to get out there and give advice to the government on how to do so, how would you encourage them and the job creators to increase revenue? Cutting spending is only one half of the equation. Personally, I have this zany idea to cut the tax break for corporations that outsource, and instead give job creators a tax break on every, say, X people that are full time in their business, where X is an appropriate value for both small businesses and big corporations.
