    I can't imagine the child tax credit going back down to 500 dollars. I don't have dependents, so it makes no difference to my tax burden. As Chute posted, this will all probably be up for vote before the election.

    We could cut the civilian federal gov't by 50%. Just a thought.

    Vegas resorts may be hurt though.

    I think 100% cut would be preferable. Let's see how much government we can live without.

    Progressives can never bear the thought of cutting their god.

    You mean other than the fact that it has completely failed its intended purpose and instead empowers a constant stream of sociopaths like Obama?

    To be fair, I believe the founding fathers intended for it to be defended, not attacked, by the people.

    That 2% SS cut was nice. Stupid in terms of the budget, but I'll take it.

    It's going to be interesting. They won't deal with any of this before the election, which leaves only a few weeks afterwards (even if they work through their holidays). Look for short-term stopgaps if anything. They have to do something though, there is no way the economy is going to absorb a $500 billion one year tax increase.
