    Bridge the deficit by merely cutting spending and trimming programs like Medicare?

    If that's our side current platform, I agree with you.

    •  The reductions (0+ / 0-)

      . . .are 40% from the defence side with provisions for more from defence if agreement cant be reached on more. . .a trojan horse for our sides negotiations. We were never going to get all we wanted once our side decided to stay home in 2010.

      Nevertheless, defence spending has been seriously bloated for a good long time. Furthermore, much of that spending provides jobs to fat assed Republicans pining for smaller government. Well, now they will get a taste of it.
