DO NOT RAISE THE DEBT CEILING! Pass a budget (preferably a balanced budget). Repeal the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act." Next, entitlement reform (privitization of Social Security, etc.). End alternative energy and farm subsidies. Decrease the size of the Federal government and empower the state governments. Enact spending caps and term limits on the Legislature. Consolidate duplicate governemnt programs and eliminate ineffective ones. Shut down the Departments of Education; Energy; Housing and Urban development. Close the Federal Reserve, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Return the US to the gold standard. Repeal unspeant "stimulus" spending. Welfare reform.
