Who Will Pay the Piper?
Indeed. There are a few faces missing from this billboard, Ronald Wilson Reagan, George Herbert Walker Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, and George Walker Bush.
What do we do about this government's out of control debt and deficits? Raise taxes? Yeah, that's always popular. Cut government spending? Maybe, where to begin? The majority of government spending goes toward entitlement programs and military spending. More popular choices: cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, or Military spending!
My choice would be a combination of tax increases and military cuts, of course that would entail ending our wars in the Middle East in the near future. If we really supported the troops we'd bring them home right now! That's my opinion, what's yours?
