So what are your thoughts on how to handle the debt crisis we now face? My thoughts are: 1. Stop all aid around the world. 2. All Federal programs need to be on the chopping block to include education and military. Nothing should escape it. 3. Bring all our Military home from everywhere around the world. 4. No new spending at all. Not just reduced future spending but no spending period. All of this should be in effect until we have no debt. Then we need a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Just because we are the top world power does not excuse mishandling money. The medicaid and ss that we pay into should not be allowed to be used or borrowed from for any purpose other than what it is collected for. It needs to be in a lock box. There should never be a surplus. The government should never collect more than it needs to cover our responsibilities. Even obtaining a surplus is a mishandling of the tax payer money. And it gives some the idea they can spend irresponsibility.
