Sheesh Dope, a couple of (minor) tweaks to SS, cut back on payments to Doctors and hospitals (they won't mind), cut some of the fraud, problem solved.
So if SS and medicare aren't causing the deficit, what is? Is it the wars which cost $100bil/yr or the tax cuts on the top rate which cost $70bil/yr? Or is it both? Lets see thats $170bil/yr. What's the deficit again?


PS 'problem solved' was funny
