A: I'm in SE Pennsylvania, and my district, your case would be kicked out of bankruptcy court inasmuch as its a dispute between only two parties, your business and the one creditor.

And even if you could somehow get over that hump, you'd still need at least one class of impaired claims voting in favor of your plan. That's a Code requirement, so your plan cannot be confirmed without the consenting impaired class.
