  • Well, first the budget would have to be really re worked...with NO extras, welfare and entitlements all revamped to prevent fraud and encourage self sufficiency. Local cities could provide a welfare check for work or higher education attendance.

    Then, you dump all the Congressional perks. Those idiots are all rich to begin with. They don't get a pension anymore, and they can buy there own lunches, etc.

    then you dump the pork.

    Then, you take my money and pay down the deficit. It's immoral to expect my great grandchildren to pay for such idiocy.

  • Things that our country needs. Better schools, roads, etc. More VA funding and better VA facilities. We need to take care of our people first.
