STOP BULLSHITTING US
Here is the reality. We spend $3.8 trillion per year in the categories listed on the chart. If the GOP candidates are going to increase the first category and not touch the second category, then the third category will keep growing. This means that $2.4 trillion out of $3.8 trillion is untouchable. Meanwhile, the Republicans will be reducing revenue by cutting taxes.
We currently bring in about $2.4 trillion in tax revenue. This means EVERYTHING besides the top three categories would need to be ELIMINATED in order to balance the budget.
Obama is no better. He has increased War spending every year in office to levels well above Bush. He will never touch Social Security or Medicare. In fact, his Obamacare will add billions more in spending. Ron Paul is the only candidate willing to put forth a plan to cut everything. It is the only chance we would have as a country, but Americans will never vote to take their fee shit away.
