    is to have the country go off the fiscal cliff...permanently.  Then we need to get rid of all the "rich people" deductions like capital gains, carried interest, social security cap, etc.  Then we need to INCREASE tax rates on the rich by another 5 or 10%, and get rid of most or all of the "rich multinational corporation" tax breaks.

    That would fix the budget permanently without having to screw over old, sick, and poor people like Rethugs want.
