It appears that after two or three weeks they are finally moving forward. Clearly, not nearly enough done, but something on the table. If it stops here we would have gone nowhere. As I see it is the beginning of dialog with the real work yet to come. After all it has taken us decades to get to where we are today. It must be a seriously action forward movement.
I don’t claim to have all the answers. Maybe some suggestions. I don’t see it happening without a balance between revenue and cuts. It is clear to me if EVERYONE would pay their percentage of tax this would free up a whole hell of a lot of money. Money that could go back into social security and medicare. After all these are not benefits. This is money we have all been putting into a sort of trust for retirement, RIGHT???????
I could go on and on. Money for education, vets, soldiers, health care, research, etc…. Yes, it is overwhelming. BUT it needs to be addressed NOW rather than LATER.
