All too true. Congress and the Administration could still save the country. But that would require a 50% spending reduction by the entire federal sector every year for the next 4 years. None of them have the desire or the guts to do so. They want to shovel as much off the top and exit with their undeserved, ill got gains and go live off that while the rest of the country goes to hell in a hand basket.

50% cut year one puts us at, what, $1.9 trillion? Clinton levels... Nice.
50% cut year two puts us at $950 billion. Reagan levels? First term?
50% cut year three is $475 billion. You no longer need a corporate tax.
50% cut year four is $237.5 billion. You no longer need an income tax.

But you can't police the world, you can't feed, house, cloth, educate and medicate 47% of the country, you can't fund retirement for everyone 65+, and you can't regulate every facet of American life.

And you can't buy votes.

Sounds good to me!
I’m a small businessman who believes we are all over-taxed. I would not raise anyone’s taxes. But since Obama’s pet billionaires like Warren Buffett are so quick to sell out the upper middle class…two can play at that game! Obama has the GOP Congress between a rock and a hard place. Here's a compromise that turns the tables on Obama.

I say it’s time to sacrifice the billionaires to save small business...and the GOP.

Let’s start with the Warren Buffett story. Buffett is a complete phony, a con man. He’s the biggest tax avoider in America, yet...
