    The payroll tax cut is paid for by an increase in the guarantee fee on new loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government run mortgage companies.

    Literally any other tax revenue the federal government collects. If you don't think there's enough revenue, then raise taxes. But you'd better raise it on the wealthy and not the working poor and middle class.
