    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.

    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 you receive.

    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.

    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!
