    Yes we must cut spending the big difference in left and right is where to cut it.
    Well the left and right citizens, the politicians are pretty much in lockstep now no matter the party.

    Lol...That author is dumber even than Samurai.

    US Treasuries are fixed-interest instruments. If the rate on the 10 yr treasury jumped to 20% tomorrow, the payments on the previously-created 14T in debt would remain unchanged.

    Sometimes I fear NEITHER party is serious about cutting spending... I guess we'll see this year whether the Republican Congress can do it.

    Why Liberals when the Conservatives haven't balanced a budget since Eisenhower?

    You can't erase a $14 trillion debt through spending cuts alone. Congress has never been able to cut spending but they have no problem with cutting taxes (income). The result is an annual deficit

    Responsible government means you ballance taxes coming in with spending going out.

    "Cut Spending" is not a panacea

    The government needs to cut the military's bloated budget, first and foremost however I doubt we'll ever see that happen. Not until the United States disintegrates and the military industrial complex goes out of business.
