    No. I am just going to say that people need to be aware of the second option: Cutting spending.

    Considering half of you pretend that this option doesn't exist, i think it's safe to say that most people aren't informed about this.

    Did you read the entire facking link? Spending cuts were also proposed, but the number one option was taxing the rich.

    Most Americans are stupid too. There are not enough rich people to tax to balance the budget or even come close. LOL!

    Those people are there to balance out the idiots who think cutting spending is the only option.

    We all know we can't cut spending without impoverishing the people, and removing their liberty! What simpletons!

    it'll take cutting spending, raising more tax revenues/raising taxes, and an EXCELLENT economy to get us out of this mess....and even then, it will still be a monumental hurdle.

    Perhaps when the dollar has tanked and the economic depression becomes palatable, however not until then will these spendthrift psychopaths balance the budget.
