In my view Congress should freeze budgets and spending at the current level which would balance the budget in maybe three years................but that's a guess since Harry Reid and the Senate hasn't produced a budget in four years.
That would mean zero spending growth. Zero new spending programs at all. Zero growth of any department or agency budget.
What I'd REALLY like to see is about a ten percent cut across the board in all departments, all agencies, Congressional pay, including a ten percent reduction of ALL personnel positions at all pay grade levels.
