The End of Free Lunchism ??Posted Wednesday, December 28, 2011, at 12:35 PM
I found a short tidbit in a recent Readers Digest and decided to find the article it was based on. I'll put the link at the end of the article, but first a few thoughts.
In the past, I have challenged those on the blogs to find a solution to the deficit by naming exact programs to eliminate or modify and exactly what the savings would be. Once again I issue the challenge, find 1.5 TRILLION dollars in a budget of almost 3.8 TRILLION dollars that can be cut. Be exact if you can. Even a close approximation of saving will do. Rhetoric wont feed the bulldog, dollars will. Please be sure to think about the political, social and moral consequences of your suggestions. Please read the whole article before commenting.
This is the first of several blogs yet to come.
