Let me repeat the obvious: The federal government does not have a tax receipts problem; it has a spending problem.
Return all federal program spending levels to those of 2008. No exceptions: military, Social Security, education, Medicare, welfare, food stamps, etc. Everyone shares in the pain. No matter what the federal program or bureaucracy, cut spending across the board.
And then, don't let federal spending increase annually by more than the Consumer Price Index. Simple and to the point.
