Dear people of Philadelphia,
The plural of "you" is "you" not "youse"

The 400 americans with the highest earnings had an effective tax rate of 16.5%
The effective tax rate is the lower now than it has been since 1950.

Simple answer to the revenue side:
An analysis the Urban Institute found that raising the capital gains tax for wealthy Americans from 15 to 20.6 percent would reduce the deficit to 3 percent of GDP.

Would this minor tick up even be noticed by them?

Great article about the Debt ceiling .
It's funny, we raised the ceiling 7 times under Bush will little fanfare. Yes, we need spending cuts (military - of course) AND revenue increases. Was the tax on the rich SO bad under reagan and Clinton that there was no Job creation?
