    In 2007, when the economy was still doing fine, The Federal Govt took in $2,568 TRILLION in revenue and we spent $2,629 trillion for a deficit of $161 billion.

    Now a mere 4 years later, we are spending $3.7 TRILLION while taking in only $2.1 trillion. For a deficit of $1.6 Trillion. OR 10 times the deficit of FOUR YEARS AGO. Who knew that Bush would be "the good old days?" Revenue is down because the economy is down. spending is up because we have a Socialist, Giant Government believing president in the White House and a Democratic Congress that loves to spend other peoples money. Now the face of Congress is changing. If the government would get out of the way of business and SHOW business that the government wants them to do well. Mainly by reducing regulations on business and taxes on business since the taxes in the USA between Federal and States are the highest of any nation in the world. Then business could and would begin to expand. And TAXES on the rich and everyone else were exactly the same in 2007 as they were in 2010. Now since obama and the Democrats extended and increased to tax cuts, taxes are lower NOW than they were in Bush's time. Individual taxes, not business taxes.

    So if we could get spending back to where it was in 2007 and get revenue just $200 billion above where it was in 2007, we would HAVE a balanced budget.

    USA needs to cut $16 Trillion over 10 years to balance the budget. Is this true?

    That comes to $1.6 Trillion every year. How many jobs will be lost in USA?

    $4 trillion over 10 years is a joke. The best way to save jobs is to reduced the salaries of high paid employees by 50%.

    Salaries of government people such as federal reserve and bankers should be reduced by 90%.

    USA cannot spend more money unless debts have been repaid or replaced by real money.

    This means every year there will be $1.6 Trillion less spending from USA. Reduce pay, reduce benefits, and reduce retirement plans and job loss means less income for USA people. Less income means less sales and less profits for private and public sector companies.

    So there will be job-loss in private sectors and public sectors.

    How will companies pay taxes when there is less profits or no profits?

    How will people pay taxes when there is reduction is salaries/wages and job-loss?

    Basically Tax collection for USA government will fall to its lowest level. Thanks to who?

    Withdraw and take back presidential plane Air force one and 412 limousines from Obama and his clowns.

    Withdraw USA army from Afghanistan immediately and end the war.

    Everybody is welcome to post their suggestions here to save USA jobs and cut $16 Trillion to balance the budget.

    ------------------------------

    House Republican budget negotiators have abandoned plans to pursue a massive $4 trillion, 10-year deficit reduction package in the face of stiff Republican opposition to any plan that would increase taxes as part of the deal.

    House Speaker John Boehner informed President Barack Obama on Saturday that a smaller agreement of about $2 trillion was more realistic.

    U.S. Debt Actually $200 Trillion?

    "The Government is lying about the amount of debt. It is engaging in Enron accounting," said Laurence Kotlikoff, an economist at Boston University and co-author of The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know about America's Economic Future.

    Mr Kotlikoff says the debt is actually $200 Trillion.

    Mr Moylan says the number is likely about $60 Trillion.

    "The problem is we're seeing an explosion in spending," added Andrew Moylan, director of government affairs for the National Taxpayers Union.

    In 1980, the debt - the accumulated red ink incurred by the Federal Government - was $US909 billion.

    THE actual figure of the US' national debt is much higher than the official sum of $US13.4 trillion ($14.3 trillion) given by the Congressional Budget Office, according to analysts cited on Sunday by the New York Post.

    Since striking workers were paid benefits by the state, much additional currency was printed, fueling a period of hyperinflation. The 1920s German inflation started when Germany had no goods with which to trade. The government printed money to deal with the crisis; this allowed Germany to pay war loans and reparations with worthless marks, and helped formerly great industrialists to pay back their own loans. This also led to pay raises for workers and for businessmen who wanted to profit from it. Circulation of money rocketed, and soon the Germans discovered their money was worthless. The value of the Papiermark had declined from 4.2 per US dollar at the outbreak of World War I to 1 million per dollar by August 1923. This led to further criticism of the Republic. On 15 November 1923, a new currency, the Rentenmark, was introduced at the rate of 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000) Papiermark for one Rentenmark, an action known as a monetary reset. At that time, one U.S. dollar was equal to 4.2 Rentenmark. Reparation payments resumed, and the Ruhr was returned to Germany under the Locarno Pact, which defined a border between Germany, France and Belgium.n payments resumed, and the Ruhr was returned to Germany under the Locarno Pact, which defined a border between Germany, France and Belgium.

    Get rid of Obama Care that costs 960 Billion per year
    That leaves 740 Billion. This can be brought down by eliminating many duplicate programs.

    Since we are just pulling numbers out of the sky, let's just say Obamacare costs $2 trillion a year. That way we can get rid of it and give everyone a tax refund and still have a balanced budget.
