Reducing Federal Debt- At least someone is talking about it

“For those who take issue with any of the spending cuts I have proposed, I have two requests:

First, if you believe a particular program should be exempt from these cuts, I challenge you to find another place in the budget where the same amount can feasibly be cut and we can replace it.

Second, consider this: Is any particular program, whatever its merits, worth borrowing billions of dollars from foreign nations to finance programs that could be administered better at the state and local level, or even taken over by the private sector?”Rand Paul

Love it or hate it, at least we have someone addressing the budget issues.  We have a proposal on the table that does not touch Social Security or Medicare.  Your challenge:  accept it or find a better way.
