Does anybody know how much the total collective savings of all the US citizens are out there?

Who didn't see this coming? And it's not just some wild idea, this is going to happen.

Do they plan to eliminate other taxes to implement this one?

This is not surprising. When Clinton was elected, I remember him looking at 5 new things to tax. Things that had never been taxed before. Back then there was enough opposition in the congress to stop it. Right now we are phucked. It will be a while before it changes. I say just hunker down for a long, bad ride.

Sure, that would be the amount the government intends to increase taxes the next 3.5 years.

It mentions at least one idea for this in the article.

Look at the line for personal saving. The BEA defines personal saving as disposable personal income (post-tax) minus consumption expenditures and interest payments.

Interesting. But the agg savings rate "supposedly" went up.
Odd numbers.
