Perhaps we need a "temporary" tax hike of 10 years back at the Clinton levels, and see how that works. (not a serious suggestion)

What a totally brilliant idea!!!!

Just enough to make up for the "Temporary" tax cuts, two wars, the F-35 and Medicare part D should do it? Once y'all get back on track you can then normalize the rates, which under some peoples rules could be called a tax cut as a reward for the suffering?

Actually it has been done before, Germany had a 10% surcharge on income taxes (called a unity tax) to pay for re-unification with East Germany. I wonder if they ever ended it?

Of course this is coming from a Canuck who wouldn't be paying the "temporary" tax hike just like he didn't pay the unity tax while living there. }};-D
