    Well...somebody doesn't get it, that's for damned sure.

    Your retirement checks are part of that deficit.

    And when you spend that money, you're helping the economy recover from its massive loss of liquidity.

    Thanks for spending!

    It's being sold as a budget reduction.

    Terminations, Reductions and Savings

    Terminations, Reductions and Savings identifies programs that do not accomplish their intended objectives, are not efficient, or that replicate efforts being completed by another initiative and recommends these programs for either termination or reduction. There have been 126 terminations, reductions, and other areas of savings identified that will save approximately $23 billion next year alone.
