  •  Grand Bargain (0+ / 0-)

    Democrats insist on a 1% tax on all securities transfers, treating all capital gains annual income above $400,000 as regular income, raise the contribution limits to Social Security to $5,000,000. When the GOP balks, agree to a .5% securities tax, regular income for cap gains above $500,000 and raising the contribution cap to only $3,000,000.

    No cuts to SS benefits, no rise in eligibilty ages and no income testing.

    There's your grand bargain. If they complain, come back at them with an excess compensation excise tax on CEOs, nationalizing the 5 big banks and building the smart grid to get windpower from the Great Plains to where its needed.
