"Cut it 10% now. Then freeze the budget until we at least get the national debt back under 5 trillion." - decath That's actually sort of what I was thinking. Cut the whole damn mess. The other day when I was doing the dishes I was sort of thinking how I'd deal with the deficit and get the Federal Government budget back to reality. One of the things I pride myself in is being able to live within a budget. Live within my means so to speak. I've always been good at it. The whole entire time Bonnie and I have been married we've never been in debt and have always been able to pay our bills. A guy at church told me the other day that he and his wife were 2 months behind on their bills. He said to me "I bet you don't know what that feels like." I had to admit that "No" I don't. This guy puts in flooring for a living. He and his father have a company that does floors. Anyway, back to the Federal Budget, I was going over in my mind how to get them back on track. What I'd do? I was thinking first thing was to cut everything 10%. Right across the board. Then what I'd do is go through all the different programs and see what we could live without. What was really a waste, and then I'd cut that. I'd make it my priority if I were the President. I'd get us out of the Mideast. Let them work it out amongst themselves. Slit each others throats if they want to. I really don't care. It's none of our damn business. We'd have to learn to live with whatever oil we could buy on the world market and pay whatever price for oil the world market commands. I guarantee you I'd get the Federal deficit headed in the right direction. Art
