NO problem. Easy for me to do,

but I didn't get to address entitlements, wHich I would have capped at no more than population growth plus the lowest possible cost of living increase........both for Medicare and SS spending.

In other words,SPEND LESS.
And I would have whacked the Ag dept by 30% and the dept of education by 80%, fired 250,000 federal workers....all by the end of 2013.

Then we could have started paying down the debt, big time.
