So what would you do today if you were the President?

President Obama is at the White House today taping radio interviews. Is that the right move? Should he be on the road? If you were the President what would you do today? We're sure you have some thoughts on this. Weigh in!

    Go on national tv with a relatively short and to the point presentation (with simple charts & graphics) regarding the state of the federal budget, i.e., where the money goes, how much of it is non-discretionary, etc.

    Then, at the end of the state of things overview, announce the following:

    * Extend the tax cuts on all income below $250K and ELIMINATE (no compromise/no extension) the tax cuts on all income above $250K.
    * Announce that we will be embarking on a crash course infrastructure building program (roads, bridge, high-speed rail, etc.). Also known as the "Jobs, jobs, jobs Bill"
    * Announce that he will not be cutting SS or Medicare, at all.
    * Announce that he will be cutting the Defense budget by 30%. Note: The cuts will only affect procurement, R&D and Atomic Energy activities....not personnel, Operation & Maintenance, or Housing.
