    What would you do to address falling government revenues and rising government expenditures, notably social security and social services in all its forms?

    Would you burden:

    1. the business sector that is on average struggling with margin pressure in globally competitive times?

    2. the seriously wealthy, say the top 20%, by say 20-40%?

    3. the presently comfortable, say the mid 60%, by say 7-14% (to raise similar additional revenues)?

    4. the seriously struggling, say the lower 20%, by cutting social security and social services delivered to everyone?

    5. public servants across the country by trimming government services and programs?

    6. by any multiple combination of the above?

    There are not too many other options imo.
