    A good part of it is closing the loopholes
    and secondly WE MUST slow the free shit give away. I'm not talking about hurting the old that have worked hard all of their lives, but the lazy free shitters must be expected to go to work. No more cradle to grave give aways.

    Cut the free shit give away to pre-Obama is what I'm saying.
    Next raise the retirement age a few years on people currently below 51 years old.

    Anything else is unacceptable. WE MUST GET control of the free shitters....We can't afford to put most of our population on welfare and it would hurt us in the long term very badly. We must have a educated population that doesn't need to live off the government.

    There's truth in what matthew says... However, it's also time for that nearly 50% of people who pay no federal income tax to begin to pay some. They need to have some skin in the game.

    We should eliminate all current forms of taxation and move to a flat tax on consumption. No loopholes, no exceptions.

    Everybody pulls their own weight.

    I think we could work something out here if we just got rid of all them Congressmen!

    Can we implement any tax increases and benefit decreases slowly? Say over three years? I hate to shock the system much.

    Mostly I'm just saying good post.

    Just about anything at this juncture is better than what we have now.
