Not all of it, just a lot of it. I am also for cutting down the size of our military, closing overseas bases, and reducing the size of our government as much as possible, the crisis only exists because we spend more then we make. You could tax everyone in the country 100% of their income and we still wont close the gap, we dont have an income problem we have a spending problem. When you're in debt the last thing you do is go open a new credit card.
So once again, when we are in a financial crisis the first thing to do is to throw the poor overboard.
No, because the alternative is a dollar crisis. Where people will get the checks, but can't buy SHIT with it. Theres a huge chunk of waste in the social programs, and the very last thing you'd do is cut where people are dependant on. The fallacy is that everyone is dependant on it.
