Given the scope of the mess we're in, I wouldn't cut taxes (except the medicare surchage). I'd keep the old rates, with the 35% cap.
Cut the spending that's been mentioned.
Create that pittance of an internet transaction tax
Legalize that which we do not talk about and tax the crap out of it.
debt problem would be reversed in short order.

Oh I am all to aware of that fact, thats why my last paragraph said this part:
To me taxing that substance is invading into our lives again even more than they should, but they have the users right under their thumb as always. The users are all to happy too allow legalization simply because its better than being thrown in jail for simple possession.
You took the statements of two radical republicans and then make the blanket statement that "Republicans" don't think failure to raise the debt ceiling will aid in possible default. Who the hell is Ted Yoho? Boehner and the boys sent up an interim debt ceiling and Obama rejected it. Don't forget that next week.
