How can we fix the mess we’re in? Starting with the across the board sequester. I can think of a few ideas. Reward companies that create jobs in the US or bring jobs this country with tax breaks. Penalize the companies that don't. End most farm subsidies, especially for corn and soybeans. If they're growing so much corn they can turn it into sugar or dump so much cheap corn in foreign markets that it drives their farmers off the land they don't need the taxpayers help. End the loophole that allows companies to build, sew or manufacture most of a product overseas and still claim it's American made. On the health end, accept the fact that we're all going to die someday. an unhealthy percentage of our health care dollars are spent in the last year of life trying to delay the inevitable  When it's time plant me in the garden under something prickly and difficult to eradicate (I wish). I'm guessing that anyone who reads this can come up with suggestions of their own.

We can either try to tax a shrinking pie or we can try to bake a bigger pie.”
