Whatever happened to the 5% solution..everybody cuts 5% from their budget. Geez, corporations do this all the time.

Does that include cutting Medicare and SS payments? We have 10,000 people a day retiring and they will continue to do so each and every day for the next 20 years. There are 58 million on SS and 47 million on Medicare now. There are also 70 million on Medicaid and 47 million on food stamps.

It is an across the board cut.

No, not payments..those are obligations. But you can be certain that they can find 5% of fat that can be trimmed in administrative costs and other overhead functions. Travel, percs, office equipment, heck, even stationary.

Every company I ever worked for figured out ways to reduce their overhead and did it regularly. They did it and stayed in business. Why shouldn’t we expect the same from government?
