Apply 47-to-1 Formula to Debt Ceiling Increase

Obama defined what "fair and balanced" means

How to cut federal spending: use this last deal to set the bar for the debt-limit rise. If 47-to-1 increase-to-cut ratio is "fair and balanced" for the fiscal-cliff bill, then 1-to-47 increase-to-cut ratio should be "fair and balanced" when raising the debt limit. For each dollar we increase the debt limit, we cut forty-seven dollars from the spending level. Obama want $1 trillion, we cut $47 trillion.

Of course, that's not workable because the cut is larger than the entire federal budget, so either Obama would have to trim his request, or make the sequester look like a picnic.

The five-percent haircut is looking better and better, isn't it?

The feral government has to be cut by at least 50% for this country to survive. I mean by firing 50% of the freeloader feral employees, not transferring them to different deparments.

Great idea! 5 % is the average attrition rate for a large business.

BTW, as an incentive, stipulate that all elected Federal Politicians are to have their total annual pay cut by 20 % per year until the Total National Debt is decreased by 1 % for two years in a row.
