    You're right, but banging your head against a wall all day can't be pleasant...

    No, no - I've just been talking to brick walls, or the intellectual equivalent, i.e. Obama liberals.

    This means total elimination of the following:

    Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works
    Environmental Protection Agency
    National Science Foundation
    Small Business Administration
    Corporation for National and Community Service
    Disaster costs
    Other spending

    Tell me how this ****ing works, right-wingers.
    You advocate continued spending like a crackwhore. Tell us how THAT is supposed to ****ing work, leftwinger.

    Now...if we are being SERIOUS...
    1-Several of those departments could and should be outright eliminated (Redundant agencies where states already manage responsibilities such as Education, HUD, Transportation for starters.
    2-Cuts across the board would be definitely required (and agencies realigned Labor and Commerce, EPA and DoE, etc).
    3-Sundowned tax increases would also be a must

    It would take about 10 years but if we were actually SERIOUS, the debt would be paid down (not eliminated but paid down), social services would be returned to the states where they belong, and government would be back under control. Needed, essential, limited.

    For one, the debt on either one can't possible get paid done by wasteful over spending.

    A totally stupid and uneducated opinion, given that everyone got it wrong. So what you're really doing is using a total bull**** opinion, to cover your ass in supporting the bull**** being sold about the debt ceiling. Your disingenuousness is duly noted.

    And all the while bragging about their control AND at the very same time saying it's Obama's fault.

    Janet Yellen is a woman so those in the Republican party are uneasy.

    i could be wrong, but I am pretty sure yellen was one of the people warning of how deregulation would cause the meltdown we had, and one of the supporters of things like glass steagal. This is why she was not first on the list. I am asking because I would love some clasrification on this if she is all about deregulation. It seemed like an odd choice for Obama to even have her on the list considering she was not your typical banks can do no wrong person.

    How many of those are enumerated powers by the constitution? We should remove all that are not. That is a first step to solving our debt problem.

    Actually, she supported the repeal of Glass-Steagall...
