THE BUDGET BLEG: What should be in it?

That's what I am writing about next Monday, for Tuesday's column.

I have quite a few ideas, but then I thought maybe someone reading this blog has one, or more, as well.

I am looking for ideas that would fit in with the Government's stated objectives (many of which have to do with saving money) and which would be politically realistic.

One is to end the special Fringe Benefits Tax treatment for motor vehicles and save up to $2 billion a year.

Another is to impose the same import duty on SUVs as cars.

What ideas do you have? I would love to add them to the mix.

Please put them in comments here.
