    "Both" wars? The United States now has three wars to contend with.

    However, since military spending is constituitonal, it's last on the list of what should be cut from the US budget.

    Not one "socialist safety net" program passes constituitonal muster and 100% of them should be axed.

    And Mayor Snorkum sees your envy of the wealthy who pay far far more in taxes than you do.

    No.

    Tip O'Neill was a Democrat. All the socialist programs are Democrat inventions, and all of them violate the Constitution and should not therefore exist in this country.

    I've never heard of this national government that does not run debt thing... since... governments were hoarding gold and issuing trade monopolies...

    75% of the budget is unlawful? Someone call the supreme court!

    Then you remain right where the upper class put you. Continuing to bear the burden of their tax cuts in ever increasing National debt in hopes that someday the wealth will trickle down enough to actually create jobs. But its's only been 30 years. These things probably take while right?

    The Republicans are not going to scrap programs that their only large constituency depends on to keep them from living on the street. Without the elderly voting block, Republicans don't get elected to office.

    So your thinking that is a possibility is delusional.

    Actually, it's the Republicans who aren't doing it. The Republicans are to the "right" as orange is to purple. Not a lot of overlap. Far too many leftists in the GOP. Look at McCain and Bush, for example.

    The burden isn't the tax cuts, the burden is the unconstitutional spending.

    Okay, so you're jealous of people with more money. Too bad, this thread is about the economic problem of the budget, and the budget problem is a problem of spending, not of stealing. There are relevant facts you must ignore to hold the position you do.

    When tax revenues go up, spending goes up more.

    When tax revenues decline, spending goes up.

    No tax has ever expired.

    No government program is discontinued without massive hysteria from the left, even useless programs like NPR and the National Endowment for the Arts have their devoted useful idiots standing up for them.

    A person making $250,000 today is not "rich", not even "wealthy", merely comfortably well off.

    When 100% of all the wealth held by people earning $250,000 and above is seized, it won't be enough to balance the budget. When that money runs out, the people making $100,000 will be "wealthy".
