Creating a Debt Free America Pt. 1 - What Will You Sacrafice?


Seems like everybody wants it and wants everybody else to pay for it.

I'd like to hear what you have or receive as an individual that you would be willing to give (increasing revenue) or give up (decreasing expenses) in order to reduce our debt?

I'll go first.

1. I get a home mortgage interest deduction I could live without.

2. I could prob. afford to pay my healthcare post tax.

3. I could volunteer my time and services at an organization that relies primarily on government funding to reduce need.

4. Assist more in supporting my elderly relatives in order make a public safety net sustainable.

I'm sure there are alot more. How could you make an impact?

Vote these pieces of shite out of office. Washington is the one that needs to sacrafice, not the taxpayers.

Let the government sacrifice first, then we'll talk.

The only way to do it is to grow the GDP, grow the pie... That will only happen with a pro business climate....

ETA- The EPA, the DOE, IRS, ATF, income taxes (go to a sales tax) that should get us started...

So you think that if we all just give Washington more that they will use it to reduce the debt and not just spend it on additional things?

I didn't incur the debt. Why do you expect me to sacrifice?

I would sacrifice my federal income tax in favor of a nationwide consumption tax. LINK

NOTHING until spending is cut and more people are brought into the tax system.

I think I speak for the board when I say that a majority of us here are the 47% that actually pay federal income taxes. We aren't the problem.

I may suffer the consequences of a devalued dollar, but no one is going to come knocking on my door for my share of the 16+ trillion.

Never gonna happen real world. Besides people pay into social security. So your willing to give up what you paid in? That would be a good sacrafice.
