  •  Just let the tax rates go up (0+ / 0-)

    Given how complex the political environment is, the best approach is the simplest.

    1) Let the tax rates expire.  You don't have to do anything to make that happen.

    2) When the sequester rolls around, the GOP won't like cutting the military anymore than we like cutting domestic programs.  But now we have more revenue from 1), so the simplest answer is to half the sequester across the board.

    We won't get in 4 trillion in 10 years but 2 trillion may be plausible.

    As far as the debt ceiling goes, don't give anything on that.
