We are stuck with an unpleasant reality, we cannot fund all that we politically want and our ongoing without interruption Total Debt growth is more than enough evidence that we have a clear spending problem. You say social safety nets should be where cuts are, others say the military should be where cuts are. I say it is all on the table for discussion and I can see entire departments gone in the process. Division of state level activity and federal level activity in an effort to reduce our tax burden. But what I will not say is what got us into this mess in the first place, partisan spending protection while claiming opposition spending wants are the exclusive problem. They are all a problem getting us to another unpleasant reality. Our deficits, even in decline, suggest we need far more tax revenues or far less spending. I suggest far less spending targeting every single department excluding no one. Including our bloated we must police the entire planet military.
