At the end of the day you can't solve this problem without going after entitlements.

Why? Because that's where the spending is.

Partly. But don't forget about the $100,000+ federal employees. Some i'm sure do a good job. But that's not the point.

I wish I made 100k. We probably aren't going to get a raise for the next two years. Look how much the debt has dropped after those two years. Fed salaries are a drop in the bucket when it comes to the money the government spends.

Entitlements AND tax expenditures. If you don't deal with BOTH at the same time, you're a phony. It's really that simple. Ask Erskine and Allen.

You can ask Erskine and Allen anything you want. All you'll get for an answer is, "Your money or your life. Or both, we don't really care." Actually, if we want to straighten up the economy we could try shaking down GS, BOA, Wells Fargo, and Citibank for a little extra cash. They owe us. Nancy Ortiz

Well, Charles, I thought that they did take a vote, and got 11 of 18 in favor, still short of the 14 necessary to "force" action by Congress. Although I never did understand how a Presidentially-appointed (i.e., Executive branch) panel could have the authority to "force" Congress to do anything.

The deficit easily could be reduced by cutting immigration, both legal and illegal. The "American Dream" has come to mean welfare, SSI, food stamps and Medicaid to too many of the immigrants (and their bummed-out relatives) who are allowed to settle in our country.

The American taxpayer can no longer afford to be taken to the cleaners by all these greedy, opportunistic foreigners.

What racist tripe, this is. If anything, the undocumented workers in this country leave more money behind than they use in services. They pay into SS under phony numbers and can never draw the money when they "retire" or become disabled. But never mind, I'm wasting my time and energy with dumbells like the one who posted this baloney.
