Another strawman from you since the president, democrats, and nearly everyone on this board have agreed that cuts need to be made. Unlike the republicans, the democrats haven't signed some absurd pledge which makes compromise impossible from the get-go. Thankfully the amount of signatories to Norquist's infantile "I don't wanna!" pledge dropped some after the election and we'll hopefully finally see some compromise.
As far as what to cut... I'm not qualified to determine what that should be but I would be okay with across the board cuts. I'm not in favor of shuttering budgetarily insignificant stuff like PBS and Planned Parenthood but I'm fine with cutting their budgets proportionally along with everything else.
