We are spending way too much money.
Despite taking in record revenues and a booming economy, the deficit is increasing.
Now to be fair, disaster relief spending is way up because of hurricanes and massive fires.
"Federal revenue rose only slightly, by $14 billion after Republicans chopped tax rates for corporations and most individuals. Outlays climbed by $127 billion, or 3.2 percent. A spike in defense spending, as well as increases for Medicaid, Social Security and disaster relief, contributed to the increase."
Before everybody hammers trump along on this one let's not forget that Obama doubled our national debt.
As a country it's time to start squeezing nickles until the buffalo farts.
It's going to happen one way or another so let's get it done now.
