A "revenue enhancement" I would support.

I the spirit of working across the aisle, I propose the following:
1) Repeal ALL of the Bush tax cuts. Let the 47% start paying some of the freight
2) An increase of 1% on all FICA withholding (employee side only) to repay what we have "borrowed."

In addition, after the CBO calculates the "enhancement" this would bring in, a $2 reduction in spending across the board, for every $1 brought in. Every department gets a cut pro-rata. No discussion, no partisanship.
