    He has it right, end Bu$h- era tax cuts, end farm & energy subsidies, raise the eligibility age for SS, etc...

    He said its estimated that @ $8 trillion could be saved by doing this instead of the bickering going on right now in the super Committee over a paltry $1 1/2 trillion

    I don't see mention in either article about " farm & energy subsidies".

    He said it in his speech broadcast on CSpan. The article doesn't have everything verbatim. Are you for subsidies?
