I saw an interview with these guys, and it's nice to see that there are a few on
each side, dem and rep, that are willing to give and take to do what is
necessary to battle the deficit. That's how it's supposed to work. It would be
nice if the media would focus more on these guys and what they are doing instead
of the rhetoric the rest of them are spewing! But compromise doesn't make for a
good story, does it!
If any of these senators that plan to cut the US deficits was part of the
creation of the same, then they are not to be trusted. Its like putting a tax
cheat in charge of the treasury.
xscribe.....agree.Everything in Wash DC is getting old up on the
hill which stretches to Penn Ave. Increases taxes though, ought to only those
who can afford it. If there are cuts in social programs, it ought to be where
there is fraud in those programs. Close the loop holes which provides $$ for
those who should not be receiving. Welfare ought to be looked at as well. The
program should be somewhat mirrored after the LDS Church program. You earn what
I don't hear any talk/suggestions about cutting foreign aid. This should happen
before domestic-cut talks begin. Like the airline analogy says, if the O2 masks
fall, help yourself before trying to help others. Nothing was said of stopping
the Fed Reserve from printing more money, returning unspent stimulus money.
Again, you can't solve a problem with the same minds that created them. We need
new, responsible leadership on both sides of the aisle.
