Thanks for reading Kathleen. But I don't see how there woudl be a bigger story. At least about the economy)
Josak Thanks for answering. On the surface that would seem to make sense, but I believe we have to get a semblance of sanity to our spending. See my comments to justsilvie below
You can cut farm subsidies and oil subsidies and are they still paying business to go overseas?You can allow to bid for drugs, like Europe, so we aren't gouged by big pharma. You can stop the 3 bil to Israel too--13 bil "lost" in Iraq: Find it!!
Ever wonder what private contractor would pay as much for a copy as a prototype? Funny this is the one part of government spending most of the GOP will fight not to cut.
Thanks Crescent skies for answering

Obama should not compromise on a plan that makes no sense and is not a workable solution.
McCaskill re-submits her bill of last year: "called on her colleagues to swiftly pass her legislation, S.133, which would put an end to automatic pay raises for Congress."
That would save money...let's see if Boehner allows vote. Money, meet mouth.
Obama Cuts Budget Deficit by More Than $300 Billion since 2009.
Alshttp://thedailybanter.com/2012/10/obama-cuts-budge... Also cut fdr gvt., froze pay....but FYI: the TP will get a raise this month!!GOP House
How is it that 2 cuts to every 1 tax increase is bull-headed, or unfair? The GOp wants all cuts, no tax increase. This is the problem. Dems are willing to compromise, GOP not. Thank you for the civility!
Public pressure has not worked so far... the GOP's answer is H.R. 607! It replaces sequestration with a delay in the implementation of Obamacare, That and not raising taxes on the rich is their only Agenda!
