We need to abandon the idea that congress has unlimited power to tax. Have the public set limits on taxation not congress. Then do a conservative revenue projection and have them build a budget that stays within those limits. To hasten the budgeting process, give them five days to come up with one that stays within revenue limits. On the morning of the fifth day start to suck the air out of the room they are locked in until they come up with a budget that stays within those limits.
