Tax reform, not to mention the strength of the "end too big to fail" narrative in the national conscience will deal with the corporations. Their hand outs are are already on the chopping block.
We've already got a few proposals floating around to end oil/farm/corporate subsidies.
I would be quite surprised if they finished 2013 unscathed.
The issue I have with your pronouncement is that entitlements should not be touched until corporate tax breaks are dealt with.
We've gotta do it all at the same time.
The fact that seems to escape you is that we won't be able to fix our financial predicament without reforming entitlements.
We all have to sacrifice. The tax hike on top level earners and reducing military funding was our sacrifice.
We are willing to consider more revenues when you are really ready to put entitlements on the table.
Unless the Democrats and entitlement spending want to be painted as no better than the Republicans with the no tax pledge.
If you guys were serious about taxes you would have proposed ending all the Bush tax cuts.
