A true statement for fiscal responsibility…
lifted from comments cactus style by reader FA
What IS relevant, is add up ALL social spending, HHS, Medicaid, Medicare, Welfare, SS… and then subtract it from the budget. Compare that to all tax revenues. You will find that when it is subtracted from the budget, there will be a surplus.
Now THAT is a program reduction. I assume we keep the rest? Are regulatory agencies included?
