    The military budget is 700 billion of the 3.6 trillion dollar budget so how much are you going to cut? Cut it completely and Obama deficits are still well over 500 billion a year.

    Ted Cruz launches faux filibuster as Senate readies spending bill vote

    I'm for cutting Conservatives Social Security and Medicare during the shutdown, in addition to Congressional pay and expenses (sans staff salaries).

    Why should we fund the basis of the problem- TeaPartiers and their supporters who hate the President more than they love their own country? Why do we pay people entitlements who bitterly complain about OTHER people getting entitlements?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Social Security is a RIGHT - its not social welfare - People paid into that account..

    Also, MANY congressmen and woman are forfeiting their salaries... Hell, a lot of the tea party representatives refuse pay or any other perks generally provided by the taxpayers via government already.

    Your ignorance of history is staggering. The T.E.A. Party are patriots, not those evil people you and others want to make them out to be. Hating the President in your world is nothing but inflammatory rhetoric. Amazing how it was patriotic when Bush was in the WH

    The problem, or enlightenment of this post depending on how you look at it, is glaring....Progressive demo's like yourself are always using platitude, and talking point when speaking in general to the public such as...

    The demo party is for:

    Kids
    Fairness
    The poor
    Women
    Governing 'all the people'

    etc...Insert here______________.

    But in reality, we see with your posting that is really all a lie.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Change the system. Oh, that's right the liberals threw a fit when Bush tried to just modify it. Your kind just won't allow it. Your theatrics fail.

    What system did Bush try to modify?

    GW Bush and conservatives have talked about modifying SS allowing younger workers to control part of their SS contributions but that would take away some of the slush fund that bureaucrats in D.C. use for their own personal gain

    Oh, that system. Putting a part of the SS funds into a private account would have been a good idea back in '65 or so when Johnson and his great society minions decided to put the SS "trust" into the general fund. The problem with doing it 40 or so years later is that there wouldn't be enough money to pay back the people who have already contributed to it.

    For the Bush plan to have worked would have required either a huge decrease in spending, which no one from either party was willing to do, or a tax increase, which only the Democrats would be willing to even consider.

    Besides Ron Paul, name them. Surely there's a list with details about the salary and perks they've officially rescinded.
