Not to take advantage of the obvious question and challenge. But how's about the amateur art and movie critics here, including the author, put forth their own solution to the current and long term debt. And a solution where the math works as well as the self serving ideological rhetoric.
1. Go to 0 baseline budgeting
2. Eliminate the concept of "discretionary" and "non-discretionary" spending. All programs on the table.
3. All programs authorized to the Federal government by the Constitution are scrutinized for waste, trimming where possible.
4. All programs not explicitly empowered to the Federal government by the Constitution are put on a 10 year glide path with the end result being that they are shut down at the end of the 10 years, no exceptions. Which means that no more new enrollees/claims, and current enrollees/claims receive decreasing benefits each year until year 10 when they no longer have programs to run to.
5. Reduce military spending drastically, pull our troops back home except for embassy guards, and stop with this military adventurism that we've been engaging in since the end of WW2.
6. Eliminate the Income Tax (you heard me). Replace it with nothing. Watch the private sector skyrocket, and reap the benefits through other existing taxes.
When they asked Willie Sutton The infamous bank robber,why he robbed banks.

This is complete garbage.
Kids are getting bullied at school everyday.
Disabled children face some of the worst challenges.
And they have the priority to fine a family that has gotten a support pet for their disabled child?
This countries priorities are bass ackwards….
They said the doctor has prescribed this animal as a support pet… It should end there! Some people have SNAKES as support animals for crying out loud!
This is a pig named twinkie….. The most damage its going to do is chew up his sisters barbie doll…..
Is there a facebook or petition we can like/sign to assist with this. This is where people fight back – for our children!
