  •  cut 30% on defense and don't look back (1+ / 0-)

    $210 billion per year, $2.1 trillion over 10. republicans either believe deficits are an issue or they are not.......cheney, fo example, famously said deficits do not matter after all.

    call their bluff. this is their not so back door approach to gut  earned benefits and they can't get away with it.

    eliminate oil subsidies
    eliminate farm subsidies
    close corporate tax loopholes
    implement corporate capital gain tax increases on money held not reinvested in business.
    shut down off-shore tax havens

    end all corporate welfare and cut defense and then come back and talk about what's left.

    mccain and graham will scream about defense cuts they can save some of the defense by offsets in corporate welfare reductions,,,,,they cannot have both.

    it is beyond outrageous to even consider cutting earned benefits when corporations and the 2% would not be hurt proportionately.

    Bill Gates said defense cuts needed to be made. I trust him.

    mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.
