    Let's say we give Obama and Reid Their
    1.6 trillion dollar tax for people making more than 250k per year.
    Wall street reform
    A law requiring all corporations bailed out to repay it back within 5 years
    A few other things like money to rebuild bridges, streets and modernize our energy grid.

    We republicans get
    -All welfare scale back to 2005 levels
    -Welfare reform requiring some form of education or advancement towards a job to be on it.
    -The Bush tax cuts remain in place for the middle class making 50-250k per year.
    -SSI reform
    -Strengthening the standards to get a house loan. Must be able to afford it.
    -A high tariff on all Chinese goods.

    and what ever else we really need to break out of this economic mess!

    Bush's mess should be cleaned up using a fair and logical timetable.

    Screw the utilities, they make enough to do their own capital improvements. And screw Maobama unitll he lays out a specific plan for substantial real cuts and not just reductions to proposed increases, he gets no increase in revenue.

    I assume the kind of compromise that won't only benefit the extremely wealthy would be a start.

    Obama should agree to some cuts. Then the real conversation can begin. You've got to throw republicans some kind of bone, otherwise the dems are at fault. Obama's original strategy was of compromise. He should go back to it.

    This wouldn't benefit the extremely wealthy as their taxes would go up(1.6 trillion dollars) and wall street would be reformed. The big corporations that took bail-outs would be forced to pay back.
