Well, they’re both wrong. We should start by cutting at least TWO trillion from federal government spending.
I'll see your paltry TWO trillion, and raise you another TRILLION!
Let's get real and de-fund the whole damn' corrupt government, send them all packing for jail, and start over!
Hey, it's either that or take up arms. Which do you want?
Federal Spending = $3.7 Trillion
Defense Budget = $0.7 Trillion
If anyone can honestly tell me -- aside from National Defense -- what useful purpose the Federal Government serves, ... I'll eat my hat.
You know, that was actually my first thought when I saw the headline... Why only 1 trillion?
Perhaps popular/conservative support for Pauls budget and these sorts of cuts and will spurr the other pres candidates to make similar proposals.
