The liberals will never, ever support this.
The massive reduction in government handouts will greatly reduce their voter base.
If we do not spend a penny more per year than in FY2009 (which we all know will never happen), over the next 10 years we will spend:
>$22.88T on entitlements
Cut $3T from entitlements? Not enough.
I do not understand why some people continue to refuse to accept the fact that out-of-control entitlement spending, 65% of all federal outlays, is the root cause of our deficits -- the INCREASE alone in entitlement spending from FY2008 to FY2009- just the INCREASE - was $500B.
