    your ideas make too much sense and don't do anything to line the pockets of those corrupt Grand Old Prostitutes, who love to claim to want to "reduce spending," but who really want to redistribute the wealth of this country from the middle class and poor to their filthy rich puppetmasters and to eliminate programs like Social Secuirity and Medicare.

    Now...if we could just get a national consensus among Democrats on a few of your ideas (letting Medicare negotiate drug prices, for instance, and eliminating the massive amount of fraud, waste and abuse by defense contractors who are a giant black hole for taxpayer money, and eliminating weapons systems that the Pentagon says it doesn't need nor want)...then we could focus like a laser and shame Republicans into supporting some of these things, if we can get their constituents to force them to do so. Those three alone would pretty much balance the budget over the next ten years.
