Doesn’t include the trillions more that will be added when the bill arrives for unfunded entitlements, state/pension deficits, etc etc! We have a moral obligation to our citizens and the world to cut spending now big time-regardless of how much it slows us down or who’s at fault! Gambling on some Madoff revenue scheme is foolish and dangerous! Cut spending significantly now or say goodby to quality of life-waiting is foolish and dangerous! Canada did it aand it worked fyi!
