    Not at all, in order to do that first you take SS and Medicare OFF BUDGET so the money that you pay in isn't spent on something else. Then you eliminate departments like the Dept. of Energy and Dept. of Education which serve no purpose. You then bill foreign countries for the healthcare provided to people from those countries or deduct it from foreign aid. The current 3.8 trillion dollar budget should be about 1.8 trillion to truly provide the services required by the taxpayers. If you truly worried about revenue you would first define responsibility, state or federal, then you would look at the taxes being paid such as exise taxes on gasoline, income taxes, property taxes and see where that money is going. The problem we have in this country as shown by liberals is an education problem where liberals don't seem to have a clue about where our tax dollars were supposed to go and where they do go

    It is easy to blame the wars for the deficits while ignoring that the wars were a small part of those deficits.

    All budget items increase each year, that is called baseline budgeting and is wrong.

    I probably give more to poor people than you make and that is where the responsibility lies, not forced giving by the Federal govt. that never solves a social problem.

    No, military power is sacred, not spending. We don't want to cut the military (as liberals do), but we are all for controlling costs and looking for economic efficiencies as long as the mission remains the same.

    There's a HUGE difference between spending on useless politically generated entitlements and the cost of having and continually developing the best military in the world.

    I am still waiting for how all that spending in the name of compassion has created compassionate results which means solving the problem? The facts prove you to be foolish thus your inability to respond to them. Why do we need the Federal Govt. taking care of personal resonsibility issues and local responsibility?

    sorry, conservative, you have provided no facts, whereas i did. and you seem to be ascribing words to me which were never posted by me. you should really check yourself.
