Is the government going to stop overspending? I generally pay about $30K in taxes every year and I'm pretty sure the majority of whatever does not go toward social security just goes toward replacing a few nuts and bolts on an aircraft carrier. It's not worth it to me.
If the American people are expected to "pony up" and bail out the government, then the entire US House of Representatives should be impeached for its failure to manage the public purse. While we're at it, we might as well put half of them on trial for treason for "Gerrymandering" their respective districts in order to stay in power. I wish we could abolish the lower house and replace it with a national referendum. The Senate can stay.
