You really are a #$%$ First of all you can't cut interest on the debt at all. That's almost 15% of the budget. Second we're not going to cut social security, medicare and medicaid just to satisfy your fat cat lifestyle. We're not going to throw old people out of nursing homes just because you don't want to pay more in taxes.
Defense, Social Security, Medicaid, Safety Net programs. Those are 4 of the 5 items that count for 80% of the budget. Cut them all by an equal percentage across the board until we have a surplus. The 5th item is interest, which can't be cut. I would then raise Scientific and Medical Research from 3% to 10%, creating a dramatic increase in technology and medical treatments to hopefully lower the costs of medical treatment and further the United States in a technology lead over other countries.
Fantastic. Raise science research to 10%.. That would do wonders for our future. I'll take this plan and tack on 6 sigma leaning. First 2 years are exploratory. Then spend 6-10 years implementing the finds.
What are you going to cut?? How can you reduce social security, medicare and medicaid benefits?? Are these people just supposed to die?? Let's kick old people out of nursing homes. Let's cut social security and medicare benefits by a third. Really?? Are you nuts??
