I Fixed The Budget, You Can Too
My plan for the deficit http://t.co/veqyQyX
New York Times: Budget Puzzle: You Fix the Budget
I recommend you go ahead and do this exercise. This speaks to my idea of grassroots governance. Although it is simplistic in that the experience should give a much better picture of why the changes you want made are not being made. What are the political forces that stand against the changes you want made?
Massive cuts in defense spending are asked for. Social Security and Medicare need major reform. You have to start talking about it. Those three are the big ones. There are tough choices to be made.
In my exercise I have not only eliminated the deficit, I have created a surplus so you can start paying down on the debt too.
