    First the deceit...they say $2.7 Tril in cuts, however they are counting $1 Trillion in planned cuts that have already happened through reduced military action in Iraq/Afghanistan. So nearly half of their plan will happen with/without enacting anything.

    Secondly, it only cuts $1.2 Trillion...OVER A 10 YEAR PERIOD. How many times do "proposed cuts" never happen? About 100% of the time. In other words in this plan, it is highly likely in the end nothing would be cut.
    It also includes no legislation to re-lower the debt ceiling ensuring that spending would DECREASE - instead it will likely increase, as you know as well as I do - they will not save the $1 trillion in less military spending as the war winds down - they will find something else to blow it on.

    We are so screwed.

    Well apparently everyone agrees with me...32 views and no responses.
    Cool.

    Clearly the solution is more tax cuts for billionaires, right?

    That is a cop-out, and in no way addresses what I said.

    If you don't think a plan is needed to address our catastrophic debt...then no, there is nothing I said that would be important to you.
    Anything else?
