show me the money
Posted Mar 7, 2011 11:25 AM
Let's look at the numbers -
proposed cuts by R - 60/3,800 - 1.6%
proposed cuts by D - 6/3,800 - .16%
deficit as a part of the budget 1,600/3,800 - 42.1%
what the cuts should be? the deficit plus some real cuts to pay down the national debt.
We can expect 'revenues' of about $2.2T, based on previous years. It's totally out of the question to raise taxes to meet the $3.8T mark. No one would have money left to pay their bills.
So, we need to cut by $1.8T.
1,800/3,800 - 47%.
That'll hurt, but it's gotta be done. We don't want to consider the options.
