Bottom line: Everybody wants spending cut as long as it isn’t their pet project getting cut.
You said it ahead of me.
Exactly. Everyone wants it in theory. But there also are polls that everyone is against any Medicare reform that would change it much from its current form. Even when Paul Ryan buys off current seniors by having the program changes impact only people under 55, people still hate it. People think cutting off foreign aide is going to balance the budget. Its crazy. The only thing that is going to balance the budget is a headlong assault on middle class entitlements. But today’s America wants to have its cake and eat it too. Cut other peoples’ spending, raise taxes on “the rich.”
