As President Obama digs in for a new battle with congressional Republicans -- this time over tax hikes on the wealthy -- the topic of deficit reduction rears its ugly head yet again. Stephen Colbert tackled that very subject on his show last night, and touched on a revenue enhancement strategy that everyone else had somehow overlooked:
