    The President announces that when the government reopens, the 'debt ceiling' will be deemed to be automatically raised to whatever is required to pay the bills incurred by Congress, the minimum wage will be set at $14.00, unemployment insurance will be allowed for a minimum of 150 weeks, the government will fund 232 new Planned Parenthood clinics (one for each republican held congressional district), social security tax will be computed on a progressive basis with no upper limit and the amount paid out will increase beyond COLA for the next two decades, and there will be a new 0.25% transaction tax on every financial trade which will be spent on infrastructure.

    As a concession, the President will allow that the new Planned Parenthood clinics be built in Democratic held districts, and that individual congress critters may refuse infrastructure funds for their district.
