Just like the rest of us the government needs to be able to run on a budget and stick to it. The problem is out of control spending on tax cuts for the rich and major corporations and excessive spending on the military. What's significant cuts to those things are budget could easily be balanced without having to cut any social programs. It would require politicians especially the GOP to get out of the pockets of the big donors and actually represent the electorate and their needs and wants. In other words we'd actually have to practice democracy. But I can control spending and borrowing is not the answer.
