    Well, we all know the right wing religion. Revenue isn't the problem, spending is. Funny thing though, they never quite get around to telling you what spending they intend to cut to balance the budget, do they? Well, here's your chance. This year the budget is in deficit to the tune of about 1.29 trillion dollars (down about 8% from Bush's last budget BTW). Please tell me where you are going to find that much spending to cut. Please be specific. Be sure to include how much money you think you are saving by the assinine things you're about to say like...cut the Department of Education. Also be sure to realize that Social Security and medicare have their own revenue streams and for most of their existence have run surpluses, many years in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

    Good luck righties. Let's see you balance the budget by cutting.

    Cap spending at 2008 levels, repeal Obamacare and Obama's 2011 tax increases.

    Defund any cabinet departments who impose any additional regulation.

    The economy will grow out of a recession like it always does.

    Here's the game.

    When they do make cuts, the wailing and moaning and gnashing of teeth really begins.

    It will make this "you won't make cuts" pants pissing look pretty tame.

    Well, as suspected, nobody has offered any real budget cuts, nevermind 1.29 trillion worth of them. It seems that one has to conclude that the right wing demagoguery about debt is a huge fraud. I mean, is that any surprise to anyone? They, the right, are responsible for almost the entire national debt after all.

    You left out dismantling the Dept. of Education which has been useless as tits on a bull since established in the late '70's.

    Just put your thinking cap on (assuming you have one) as far as considering where to make cuts.
    It is also obvious that you do not figure in projected savings when people suggest budget cuts.

    .......almost forgot.....pull out of the U.N.. Another nice budget cut idea. The possibilities are endless if, and there is always an IF, there's a will.

    Hey Kidd, you have not offered one budget cut that actually shows that you know anything about what you're talking about. You need to show me the money. Suggest a cut and with that suggestion, show how much money will be saved and tell us all how you know. You have 1.29 trillion dollars to come up with. Good luck.

    I won't hold my breath.
