It really isn’t that hard to figure out. People, especially the old-timers, are in govt for the power it gives them. Spending programs give them that power over the lives of people. To reduce spending is to reduce their power. Of course there is nothing left to cut….especially if you are in it for the power it gives you. They will not give up that power even if it means allowing the country to crumble into 3rd world status. You will either need to put people into office that have no interest in power (I only know of one person in congress that ever exhibited that characteristic) or crash the system and force congress to cut the spending just to survive.
