First glance to me, pretty scary. Our health care and my husband's retirement pay are seriously in question. BUT, I would be willing to give in those areas for a flatter tax and some of the cuts for second homes/crazy business cuts. Why should anyone be able to write off their car and gas for work? (Or, to put it in my world: Why should I pay for your car if you don't pay for mine?)
The US needs to seriously stabilize. The Social Security piece also looks do able. Personally, I would LOVE to see the "survivor benefits" for children go away- and most of the disability benefits as well. Harsh, yes, but they didn't pay in- so why should they get anything?
My surprise- why are they not cutting the Department of Education? What a waste. Education SHOULD be local. I can see some subsidy for the low income areas- but the department itself is a waste of money.
BTW- vesting retirement for military at ten years- great for the service member. Will we have much of a military if that happens- probably not. If you have been in that long you can make far more in corporate America.
What areas of government do you, personally, have actual knowledge of? What could be cut from it? What part of government are you willing to cut (that will affect your quality of life) in order to balance the budget?
