That 80 billion is for one year. Were you expecting to cut the budget deficit to zero in one year?

I was hoping to not have to call Washington "pathetic", which is what token gestures like this are.

Again, if it's so little, why would you risk a financial collapse just to fight for the wealthy?

Financial collapse, eh? How are reforming entitlements going to cause a financial collapse?
