How about we stop prioritizing already rich people and military contractors with budget breaking welfare and we can balance the budget better, faster, and with less chance of a peasant revolt. You can only kick the working class around so much you know. Then soldiers and their families can get all the help they need. Stopping our pattern of endless wars and pissing off every other country would help immeasurably as well. If we weren't the jerks of the world with all the nukes we wouldn't create so many enemies. And give me that bull about them hating our freedoms because the last few president administrations (since Reagan) chipped a lot of them away.
