We can raise taxes, we can grow our economy- BUT you, Congress, and I know it is curbing, cutting, controlling spending that will mean all of the difference. If you take in about the same revenues as in 2000, but spend 25% MORE than then- what do you think the problem is? NOT revenue, JUST spending..  PERIOD!
So since I am convinced that our wonderful leaders in DC have absolutely NO conviction or political courage- here is MY best idea on how to control spending..  What do you think? (Yes, honestly..)
 
*2% Across-the-Board Spending Cuts (real cuts, not just less baseline increases as currently done)
*Consolidate Cabinet from 14, down to 7-  saves top tier mgmt salaries, pensions, benefits- no effect to taxpayer
*Consolidate Foreign Military bases and Embassies to streamline yet keep International presence safely
*Eliminate Federal Pensions and replace with 401K w/ matching
*Re-evaluate Federal Benefits Contributions to equal private contribution levels
*Re-evaluate Federal Control of Education- giving States control and autonomy would save Admin funds and put money back to directly impacting the kids.
*No COLA (cost of living adjustments) or pay raises IF we run Deficit or Nat'l Debt.
*No new laws funded without cuts to existing programs to match dollar-for-dollar
*Re-evaluate ALL foreign aid on merits of WHO to, WHY,&  WHAT is given
 
The list could be longer- but this is my starting point...  What are YOUR thoughts about it?
 
Remember, it has to impact the Federal budget, but not impact the Tazpayer.. AND be politically possible.
Good luck- hope you have more ideas, or at least give me feedback about mine.
