    Actually try to cut spending in a meaningful way?

    $30B $60B $100B are all laughable cuts.

    What are the people you support doing?

    If they aren't part of the solution they are part of the problem.

    Of course they won't. The whole system is screwed. I don't think there's a single politician out there who would actually do what needs to be done. And even then, it takes more than one person to pull it off.

    If they cut $100B this year, and $100B next year, and $100B the year after than, etc... after ten years of this they will have reduced spending by $1,000,000,000,000 (1 trillion dollars). This first cut is hopefully the pebble that starts the avalanche that will continue for years to come. That is the real question, not how much will be cut now, but will the cutting continue until the spending problem is solved and the debt is paid in full.

    I got my eye on you, Mr Politician.

    Cutting more taxes without cutting spending is a repeat of the failed Bush Republican policies. No one wants to go back there.

    You cannot ignore the unprecedented spending of the Obama clan which increased the deficit by far more than Bush did.

    cutting taxes is always good regardless of whether it comes with spending cuts. that the government would be in debt is largely irrelevant.

    I guess so, since they are paying off both Bush's deficits and their own.

    You just don't want to answer the question because as most so called "conservatives" you talk the talk without walking the walk.

    Now it's your turn to say something worthless.
