Worried about the debt, just let the Bush tax cuts expire, get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and you’re pretty much there.  Notice that the impact of the tax cuts– unlike the other factors– just keeps growing.  Also notice that TARP (aka, “the bailout”) pretty much accounts for almost nothing.  And, if you think raising taxes back to Clinton-era rates are going to destroy the economy, just check out economic growth rates during the 90’s.
