    Democrats just need to hold their ground and propose responsible cuts, if any exist.  Make a big long list of them to show the public the spending cuts the Republicans REJECTED so they could have their economic armageddon.  Then, when the day comes for real default, and Wall St. drops 50%, and three major banks close due to runs on deposits, calmly ask the Republicans if they would like to raise the debt ceiling now?

      That's a big part of the budget problem right there.  We need to go back to the Clinton era tax rates on those making over $200,000, return capital gains and dividends to full taxation,  and also raise taxes on those making a million+ to 50%.
