We have a spending problem, not a revenue problem.


And define what you mean by spending. Don’t use the past years inflated
budgets, or proposed increases to look like you cut something.

If you spent $10 5 years ago, and that was balanced , then use that...

Dont use the $15 from last year, show how it would go to $17 and then agree
on $16....

Thats O “ smoke and mirrors” and not cutting anything.

Entitlement Reform - easy way:

Medicaid and Social Security - for everyone under, say 55, Medicaid begins at 68; Social Security begins at 68 (early SS at 65 with reduced benefits).

Means test Social Security - if you are currently earning (AGI) over $150M; defer SS until you earn under, say, $50,000.

Disability for SS needs to be recertified every 5 years.

Welfare - put back in work requirements

Obamacare - short of dismantling it (my choice), eligible for free health care to 2x poverty income; not 4x.

That was easy.
