Short Video Explains Hypocrisy of Proposed Cuts
Summary: From the stack pictured here, imagine one penny being taken off. That is the nature of the proposed cuts. Watch short video.
Rule One: Mandatory entitlements and spending are PORK. Anyone with an ounce of integrity would start there, eliminating subsidies, corporate entitlements, tax fraud tolerance, and so on.
Rule Two: Discretionary spending is so heavily weighted toward defense and intelligence that it is EASY to find $250 billion for redirection. Nothing would make the Phi Beta Iota collective happier than to see all those “butts in seats” swinging a pick-axe in a road gang.
Rule Three: If the government does not start taxing the wealthy and getting OUR financial house in order, deep changes in government are likely to be demanded by the public in 2011-2012. A complete tax boycott is one reasonable option.
