In 2030, it would increase two months per year until it hit 67.

If Corporations And The Rich Paid Taxes At The Same Level As The 1960s, The Debt Would Disappear
Some numbers — from an Institute for Policy Studies report released this past spring — can help us better visualize just how monumental this political failure has been. If corporations and households taking in $1 million or more in income each year were now paying taxes at the same annual rates as they did back in 1961, the IPS researchers found, the federal treasury would be collecting an additional $716 billion a year. In other words, if the federal government started taxing the wealthy and their corporations at the same rates in effect a half-century ago, the federal debt to investors would almost totally vanish over the next decade.

LIE #4 from "Rebuild the Dream" w/ Van Jones
Walker Shouted Down at Gateway Technical College 7/12/11
But Walker met with an angry response from the assembled students, teachers, and graduates of the college. Over half the attendees jeered at Walker, drowning out his speech. Others turned their backs or simply walked away as he spoke.
It took a consideerable amount of gall for Walker to give a speech commemorating the one hundred year anniversary of the oldest technical college in the country. Walker's budget slashed state funding for technical schools all around the state, and he pushed through radical measures to cut the legs out from teachers and instructors.
"It's insulting to all fo the students, staff and businesses who depend on technical colleges to have someone who just slashed our funding by 30 percent," said Michael Rosen, a state board member with the Wisconsin Technical College System. "He can't be seriously attending, this celebration," he said.
Less than four months from today, United Wisconsin will begin circulating petitions to initiate a recall of Gov. Walker.

Cantor: Taxing The Rich Is Off The Table, But Making Students Pay More Immediately Is Fine
As Monday’s White House budget talks got down to the nitty-gritty, Eric Cantor proposed a series of spending cuts, one of them aimed squarely at college students. The House majority leader, who did most of the talking for the Republican side, said those taking out student loans should start paying interest right away, rather than being able to defer payments until after graduation. It is a big-ticket item that would save $40 billion over 10 years.
