As Will Rogers said, "We have the best Congress money can buy." Serious budget cuts are unlikely because spending serves the self-interest of politicians. It's all about the money. When politicians grant a tax break or subsidy to a company, the politician profits too, whether in the form of campaign contributions, payoffs to family members who are lobbyists, insider trading, or some other scam. Greed and corruption rule the system.
