Correct. We need to fix that. Unfortunately, everything you've suggested to change that has gone down in flames.

You suggested closing corporate tax loopholes to raise revenue -- only to be blocked by 97% of Congressional Republicans who have signed a pledge to never do that.

You suggested taxing the unemployed, impovrished, and the elderly -- only to learn that poor people don't have the cash to run the country.

You suggested cutting gov't spending to create jobs to increase tax revenues -- only to learn that cutting gov't has actually cost half a million jobs so far this year and accounts for the slowing of overall job growth statistics.

Any other ideas?
