    I think it would be a combination. It would have to be the expiration of the Bush tax cuts along with an increase in the minimum wage. Also, we have to look into closing loopholes.

    I think zero-based budgeting would work for loopholes. I think all of them should go and then their lobbyists could come back and convince us that any of them are needed. I'd prefer to get rid of all of them and only use subsidies that are voted on every two years. That would make it much easier to handle.

    I'm hoping we'll go off the fiscal cliff and then the Republicans will have to scrape and beg for every privilege they want.
