These are great solutions. I did the puzzle and fixed the budget 100% in spending cuts, 0% from tax increases.

Also:
Privatize the post office
Sell all unused federal properties (Thomas Jefferson did it and raised mucho $)
Privatize education
Flat tax with no loopholes

We also need a balanced budget amendment going forward so that politicians can't put us back into this situation again.

But they could... all balanced budget amendments have an out in time of war or financial stress... that describes all years since 9/11....
