The crappier truth...
You can raise taxes to 100%, end all social programs, and we will still be in the same position.
We have a busted monetary system as well as trade system. The reason why the government will default if the debt ceiling isn't raised is because debt is needed to service debt. A return to the credit monetary system pre-1913 (without the IRS) as well as smart tariff policy will do a ton to help this country. And we can have all the social programs too.
