1. Cut spending to the bone. Use the revenue we have incoming to pay the debt interest, pay the military, pay social security and medicare. Priotritze everything else after that and spend NO MORE than what comes in.
2. CAP sepnding NOW, at a modest rate of GNP that allows us to balance the budget in five years minimum.
3. Pass the Balanced Budget Amendment NOW and send it to the states.
4. Inact legislation (or an amendment if necessary) that requires anyone receiveing Federal or State Aid for their income to be ineligable to vote until they are off that aid.
If we did these four things, we would end our economic quandry, and we would break the back of the socialists in this country.
Outstanding Jeff, simply outstanding. I too have sent emails today to my representatives. Lets turn up the heat on these crap weasels.
I'd extend that to all government employees, excluding the Military.
Jeff, I would like to add a number 5 to your list.
5. Offer a “bounty” on waste and fraud. Anybody who identifies a specific instance or example of waste or fraud receives 1% of the money that is saved.
