In the 60 Minute presentation Grover Norquist and America's for Tax Reform was clear that they want to government to return to "turn of the century" size This is 8% of GDP, which was the case before we had Social Security or WW military responsibility. So what gives..... The Military and Social Security or The pledge for America's for Tax Reform or The Deficit. I am willing to bet it is the deficit that loses in the end. The Republican's claim to be for deficit reduction but they are full of BS. Unless Simpson and few other statesman in the Republican Party have their way.
