    Follow Paul Ryan recovery plan- 300 billion

    Total: 653.65 billion

    There you go, that meets the need with all cuts. This doens't even take into effect the corporate tax gained by abolishing the TSA and privatizing it. Just think, I did that with no inside knowledge and a lap top.
    You realize the Bowles Simpson plan requires tax increases do you not? The GOP have sworn not to raise taxes on the rich.................even if that includes abandoning the middle class.

    I'm not the GOP bud. Never claimed to be. Never will. This is the order we should do things. Cut ridiculous spending, de-regulate, then tax the unfettered market at the end. That plan fits that to the "T".

    Who are you voting for in November? Who do you think is going to win in November?

    Why does that matter? What, I have to be a member of a party to vote? Is that it?

    No one is saying you have to be a member of a party to vote. I was curious as to who you thought was going to carry out this:

    No one running honestly. I though this hypothetical? I'm President MarineTpartier? Right?

    What ? Bowles Simpson lowered the take on every tax bracket. It closed loopholes, but it lowered every bracket. WTF are you talking about ?

    If there is no one running you plan to vote for, I would say the chances of your goals for the country for becoming reality are pretty slim.

    Didnt say that. I said no one running would implement my plan. Doesn't mean I won't vote for someone. Has Obama done everything you wanted him too? Sure he hasn't, but you'll probably vote for him.

    "It called for deep cuts in domestic and military spending starting in 2012. It would overhaul the tax code, eliminating or reducing the $1 trillion a year in popular tax breaks for individuals and corporations and using the revenues mostly to slash income tax rates but also to reduce deficits. And to make Social Security solvent for 75 years, it would raise payroll taxes for the affluent and reduce future benefits, including by slowly raising the retirement age for full benefits to 69 from 67 by 2075. They said the plan would reduce deficit spending by about $4 trillion over the coming decade."
