I was actually making a tongue in cheek comment but I do agree with you. The only reservation I have is that I also believe that we should begin taxing the banks. I'm not sure if you've caught my proposals for "Taxing LIEs" which suggests we tax Leveraged Income Earned as it applies to all derivatives, short sales, fractional reserve banking and possibly even FRNs' very existence.
I calculated that it would only take about 1/2 of a percent tax to cover our deficit in two years.
Also, check out my latest post on a solution to the problem. It's right up your alley.
