I agree, the rich can pay what they did under Bill Clinton.
Lets do the math..., raising taxes on citizens earning over $200,000 would generate $70 billion a year for the U.S. treasury.
$1.3 trillion deficit - $70 billion = $1.23 trillion deficit.
AFTER THAT WHO SHOULD WE TAX?
Maybe we should let all of the Bush Tax Cuts expire, at least that would give us $400 billion in saving per year, and we would still have to cut the shite out of spending.
It is our Spending, not our revenue that is out of control.
