    The things that I want for the nation as a whole cost a lot of money. Our system of revenue generation is broken and fully rigged for the rich to game the system. This cannot stand or the nation will eventually fail. Yes it is that simple. Buffet's ideas are sound. They should be implemented as policy now. The calls for status quo ante are at best monumentally stupid. We cannot "grow" our way out of this mess. Trickle down economics do not work. They failed under Reagan. They failed under both 12 years of Bush Presidencies. Let me repeat, it is a failed economic model that is proven to not work. Twenty years of consistent failed policy is an indication of the insanity of the current republican positions. Insanity defined is doing the same thing again and again and again and yet again and expecting different results.
