Follow the Money

I want someone, no, I want EVERYONE in Congress AND on TV to start asking this question: 

Taxing the 'Rich', i.e. repealing the tax cuts on people EARNING income over $250,000/yr.  is estimated to result in $85 billion/yr. of revenue. At current levels of expenditures that would fund the U.S. Government for approximately 8.5 DAYS. What else do you propose?

(When addressing the appropriate person, insert either: Mr. Majority Leader, Mr./Ms. Secretary, Mr. Vice-President or Mr. President before the question mark.)

They should press for specific answers, the amounts of increase in revenue or cut in expenditures, not just platitudes. AND, they should start asking this question and pressing for the specific answers at EVERY Opportunity.
