Let’s stop blaming and start solving this countries spending problem. Let’s start with the fact that we are currently collecting enough money from taxes and fees. Let’s start by setting spending priorities like most folks do with their own personal budgets. Its intuitively obvious that we can’t pay for everything for everyone, and there is going to be sacrifice required of everyone. Let’s start with the federal government repaying the social security administration for the money stolen from the social security system. Then let’s eliminate social security benefits to those who have never paid into the system. Let’s eliminate foreign aid to countries that will not cooperate with us. Let’s eliminate payments to all noncitizens. Let’s require workfare. Let’s eliminate free cell phones and replace them with landline phones. And with this there are so many little ways to cut federal spending and balance the budget. Everyone of us can think of a dozen ways to chip away at our spending problem and get our budget in order and ultimately reduce our national debt! The political gamesmanship must be replaced with real constitutional behavior!
