So, everyone from Defense, Justice, Education, Transportation - pretty much anyone in government - says that they cannot cut their budgets, even by 10%, or it will have "catastrophic and long-term consequences". So that's it? We spend $3.5 Trillion while we only have $2 Trillion in taxes. And nothing can be cut.

What a great position government has managed for itself. "Too important to shrink".

Personally, I think every agency could stand to tighten the belt by 10% with minimal impact. And that should just be the tip of the iceberg.

Or, raise the tax rate on everyone in America to 42%. That would balance the budget. Now, what politician is going to implement it?
