Its amazing the HUGE difference a few small cuts in entitlement spending makes in that exercise. I think you could solve the whole budget problem.
Just by cutting entitlement spending, I was able to eliminate about 80% of the long-term deficit and 1/3 of the short term deficit.
I'd still like to see the difference eliminating ObamaCare would make.edit on 12/1/10 by FortAnthem because: Stand still damn you! _____________________
