Since you all seem so focused on not cutting any spending aside from military.

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.

Honestly neither am I, but the spending is the root of the issue, not taxing the rich to pay more just to spend that too. The quicker you guys realize that, the quicker maybe the two parties can actually seriously start putting it in effect. Entities like PBS would survive off donations.

The class warfare farce is just that a farce, and it's hurting this country more than I think those on the left realize.

Spending is mostly moot. Tell me how spending hurts our economy. You'll probably say something dumb like "China," even though China isn't even our largest foreign debtor.

Bottom line - you seem to not know much about our economy. The enormous gap between the amount of people in our country vs the amount earning money is a larger issue than the amount our country is spending. Not to say our country isn't spending too much, just that it isn't what's been the drain on our economy.

Tell me, in one paragraph, how spending damages our economy. Don't say "duh, it's obvious, BECAUSE!" tell me who you think our debtors are and how having a deficit is truly a drain and slowing things down.
