What you cannot do is fix the problem with spending cuts alone.
Clinton era rates on the "rich" are not going to be able to finance the looming deficits in SS and Medicare. You are delusional, uninformed or lying if you suggest it will.
It's all part of the plan in disaster capitalism. You can almost bet on another false flag event this fall. My money is on Israel and Iran. Whatever it is it will happen in the next few months and as a result there will be new restrictions on Americans: fuel consumption limits (likely imposed by higher taxes), ATM transactions; further budget raids of the People's money (more social solutions to private debt) and so forth. All this will be for "the public good as we fight (the newest manufactured enemy) to preserve our freedoms and our American way of life." <hit the puke button hard here>
It's over people. Some of us know it. None of us want it, unless you are, of course, fabulously wealthy. Everyone else is a pawn or soon will be.
