I am so tired of hearing about spending cuts of $2T over TEN years, with the cuts coming in the 9th and 10th year. Oh, right! All quotes of revenues and spending cuts should be on an annual basis at best or two years, since that's the tenure of House representatives. Congress will not abide by budgets passed by previous Congresses or administrations. We must also get rid of baseline budgeting that was passed by Democrats in 1974 in an attempt to get around or punish Nixon. This is an insane way to run any enterprise, but especially the fed govt, where they have no revenues other than what they TAKE from us.
The world is too much with us; late and soon.
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours

I find it amazing that America is saddled with $16.0 trillion in debt, and yet lawmakers are haggling over how much to tax productive citizens. It's so insulting and so bass-ackwards, I want to scream. But it's not only a primordial outcry because of a policy that penalizes all the hours, weeks, months, and years of work and sacrifice, but also the drubbing of disrespect that has been part of the campaign. It's worked as the majority...
