This was about what you personally would give up to help balance the budget. Not what the government should cut. Stop protecting Japan, pensions for congressman etc. Anything but what would effect you personally.
I've got news for you. We cant cut our way out of this mess. Revenues have to be raised. You are going to give something back whether you want to or not.
Start with cuts to spending across the board 5%. And take the highest paid wo currently pay no federal income tax and slap a 10 minimum on those. Dont expect those who already carry a load to do more while other do none.
