I think we should give up on the Bush tax cuts and allow the AMT to go on unabated. This will put high earners who haven't had to pay confiscatory tax rates in their lifetimes something to think about. We kept talking about Obama's Jimmy Carter presidency, but the missing ingredient was 1970's tax rates. Most people earning now never saw that. They need this lesson. Our efforts should be concentrated on slowing spending.

You're nobody til somebody loves you
You're nobody til somebody cares
Dean Martin

I hated reading about the later years of Dean Martin where he was once taken by some woman grifter preying on his loneliness to squeeze what she could out if his name. After his son died training in a fighter jet, Dean Martin tumbled into despair. Coupled with long nights and hard partying he was soon just a shell of himself, and yet even in that state, he needed someone to show they cared. This is the way it is for all people.
