Con

I only have 500 characters, so I'll begin by listing some ideas:

1. Raise taxes on the top 2 percent because rates are near historic lows.
2. Tax capital gains are ordinary income.
3. Eliminate oil subsidies.
4. Cut defense spending
5. Add a public option to the health care bill to lower health care costs

Reasons for voting decision: It is impossible to agree with people unless they POST THEIR ARGUMENTS! But I would suggest a 10,000 character limit so one can back their ideas. And the reason I give all 7 to Con is that Pro forfeited.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct goes to Con for completing the debate, Pro forfeited. Tied on everything else, as no real argumentation was given, just ideas without backing.
