With the national debt now at $30 trillion, Congress should demand an immediate, thorough
audit of every program to find out where the waste is. Then, instead of spending billions more, it is time for an across-the-board 10 percent cut to every program. Then cut 3 to 5 percent each year until the budget is balanced. Is that so hard? The government can’t spend the money Congress is giving it fast enough. The state of the union is… broke.
