    It seems that cutting the budget is the big thing in your life. So where would you cut? The majority of the cost related to the deficet in the future is about SS, MEDICARE and MEDICADE.

    So what would you do with these programs, how would you change them? And if you think they need to be changed what would happen to the people who need these programs which righ now is basicly every person over 65.

    The rest of the budget outside these items is mainly two things, Military and Edcation.

    Do we need either of these two things or the other three. So how should these things be paid for? Should we raise taxes on people? What programs would you cut and how much and what will the people who need these programs do to replace them.

    Please explain what and how to do the things you want done and who is suppose to replace everything you do away with?

    I have things that could be done. Allow the interest on SS payments be made for all the money that has been paid into SS over the last 50 years and from now on. Just pay the same as savings bonds.
    Allow means testing over 65 as to what you recieve and what you can pay for.
    Allow the SS tax to go up to last dollar, with employers stop paying at what it is now indexed for inflation.
    Put the inheritance tax back to where it should be, and use any income to help supplement any cost increase, because 59% of all money passed on has never been taxed.

    What would you do Tea Baggers, and just cutting taxes ain't going to get it done.

    Get back to me when you drop the childish "Teabaggers" bullshit. Then I'll know your at least halfway serious.

    The TP'ers will be happy if they can just get NPR/PBS defunded.

    Pretty much, they will back whatever their leaders tell them to.
    And then blame any failures on the other side.

    Waste and fraud. That should do it.

    Plus - eliminate the ethanol program, stop paying farmers to not grow crops, stop paying farmers when it rains, stop paying farmers when grain prices fall, stop paying farmers when they get a fucking hangnail...

    Why are all of you hating on the Tea Party? Everything they want to do is not only doable and feasible, but it's not even hard. The biggest catastrophe that's happened to our country in recent years was Christine O'Donnell not getting elected. She had everything working for her, she could have lead this country to salvation. She's an expert, you know.
