Just make the politicians take a pay cut, that will cover the missing money, but its easier to blame obama and the poor as usual.
Thanks for the propaganda course mr X, i learn so much from your threads lol.
Not to just poke you for the comment but,the cost of every elected official, high is it might be, is equivalent to a cheap pedicure compared to the gargantuan costs of socialized welfare assistance.
I think they should lose their pay too but, like our foreign assistance (bad as that is or may be), it isn't a significant cost.
The problem, as in any nation with a central bank, is the interest payments that are carried on the government debt. Want to save 10 or 20 trillion over the next 10 years? Nationalize the central bank, the fed.
