    The US has over $16.28 trillion in debt (over 8 of it added in the last 6 years). The US has over $121 trillion in under funded liabilities SS, Medicare, Medicare drug. That adds up to over $1,000,000 per US taxpayer. The US has already gone over the fiscal cliff and is falling toward the sudden stop. They failed to deploy their parachute on 11/6/12.

    It’s so funny the the right seems to think by electing a person that subscribes to the same things that started the financial crises would somehow stop it…. Its just so dang silly…..

    A tax of .0001% on the one quadrillion dollars annual securities sales (now tax exempt) would pay off the debt the first year, Further years could provide for our neglected infrastructure, educational system, keep taxpaying citizens alive rather than dying from poor health, etc. After the initial purchase offer, companies get nothing from stock sales, it is just a gambling device.

    Actually, this one is bipartisan—both sides in Congress agreed to it, as well as the President. And there is a problem when we spend 150% of our income year after year.

    Perhaps. Or else, the day traders who love to shuffle money around, as well as the computerized traders would stop making so many sales.

    @Redkaycei Repoc

    And re-electing the guy who more than doubled the debt in less than four years is going to get us out of debt. Yeah, makes a whole lot of sense…

    bmonk: Either would help, but I doubt the money-grubbers would change their habits for a measly one-mill tax.

    @K M

    You have a false statement there so I’m not even going to say more…. but go look at the facts before you spout some Fox sludge….

    Doubling would mean we have over 20 trillion by now which we do not.
