OK, so you want ot join the ranks of those who want to cut the national debt. I applaud you for that, afterall, I am a fiscal conservative, but could I just give you a small piece of information that might help you get a grip on what the real problem is with our spending problem and cash flow issues in this country. . .
Here's the first: Iraq and Afghanistan. It's real simple. $1.5 billion per day being spent in two wars we have no business being in. GET US THE FUCK OUTTA THERE LIKE YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO DO, ASSHOLE!!! It'll save us over $500 billion a year!
Ok, here's the second clue for you (I thought you were smart. Do you really need a dumb bubba like me giving you clues?): TAX THE RICH!: That's right, take away their loop holes. Make them pay a little higher percentage than the working class. Make it so that companies like GE and Exxon-Mobil actually pay taxes instead of paying no taxes and then getting "rebates." WTF is wrong with you for not addressing that problem to the American people, most of whom are living pay check to pay check.
There. Do those two things and our cash flow problems go away. No, really, have someone work up the numbers for you. I know you've gotta have a couple accountant types hanging around the White House.
