Congress must learn to cut spending

December 4, 2012 

Every household in the U.S. that is struggling financially is forced dramatically to cut their own spending.

Why our politicians in Washington want to increase spending is beyond stupidity! Higher taxes on businesses will only worsen the economy. A 10 percent spending cut across the board on everything would be a huge beginning!

The huge problem is freebies Democrats in Congress have given out for one's vote. Just as in Europe, it will be very difficult to take away these freebies in the future.
