CLOSE LOOPHOLES/CUT ENTITLEMENTS H.S. Boehner want to balance the budget and pay down the deficit by continuing the tax cuts for the rich by closing loopholes (?) for the rich, fix (cut) entitlements. (food stamps, welfare, Medicaid/Medicare, Social Security/SSI, WIC, unemployment insurance/job training programs (whats left of them after being chopped by the right) subsidized housing, COLA for seniors and benefits for veterans) to raise enough revenue to pay down the deficit and balance the budget when these entitlements did not get us into this mess in the first place. Two wars, tax cuts for the rich and cuts in regulations and not holding big corporations accountable did. Like Wall street, banks and lending. Closing what loop holes and how will that create revenue? Closing enough loopholes that benefit the rich to pay for the massive tax cuts is fuzzy math. In the Language of Congress. On the backs of the middle class, seniors, children, poor and disabled. Those that are already hurting by the two wars and tax cuts for the rich.
