Is there anyone who is not for a balanced budget? I think not.

The question seems to be, how do we balance the budget? There are many cuts we can make. There are sources of more money available.

Why are we only talking and arguing about cuts to the needy? Who is insisting on this false choice and why have we wasted so much time? Our military spending is defending us from weapons no longer being used. Our foreign aid is gladly received, but our ideas are rejected. Loopholes exist to benefit corporations and people no longer needing support to thrive. If we made wise choices, we could balance the budget with no arguing.
