This is the fault of Congress and the President. The Senate has not passed a budget in almost four years (the fault of head Democrat Harry Reid).

This country faces some stark realities. Providing for the common defense is at the beginning of the Constitution. Your Medicare, Medicaid, SSI, Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, Unemployment, are not mentioned in the Constitution.

I for one feel that we need a strong defense. Everything else should take a back seat.

I personally want every dime back that I have paid into Social Security in the last 40 years, so that I can invest it for my own retirement and not have my money used to perpetuate the Ponzi Scheme that is Social Security to pay for yours.

Why cut something supplying jobs? Cut entitlements!
