  •  Bullshit. (0+ / 0-)

    Congress will spend far less than needs to be spent, except on the war machine and security state, where it will spend far more.

    The problem isn't spending (with the narrow exception of projected health care costs), it's revenue.  The economy sucks, which hurts revenue, and Republican regressive tax policies suck, which hurt revenue.  Progressive taxation, a functioning economy, and trimming the war machine and domestic spying machine would put us in the black quite nicely.  Then get long-term health care costs under control by implementing Cradle-to-Grave Medicare, and we'll be rolling into the 21st century.

    "...the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." RIP Senator. We miss you.
