  1. They wanted cuts in spending and shrinking the deficit. They shall get their wish.

    The plan calls for deep cuts in domestic and military spending, a gradual 15-cents-a-gallon increase in the federal gasoline tax, limiting or eliminating popular tax breaks in return for lower rates, and benefit cuts and an increased retirement age for Social Security.

  2. "Extending all the Bush tax cuts through 2020 would add more than $4 trillion to the debt — coincidentally, about the same amount that the chairmen’s painful options are designed to cut in the same time frame."
  3. I have a much better idea to fix SSN. Congress quits embezzling the fund and the money collected for SSN is only used to pay SSN benefits. They can raise the retiment age to infinity and nothing will change. Retirement age isn't the problem. Number of people retiring isn't the problem. Wealthy people that don't need it but are getting it isn't the problem. THEFT by congress is the problem.

    And one more thing. I'd like to know why our friends in the media, whatever their political persuasion, never ask any member of congress to explain the embezzlement of the SSN fund. Why is stopping the theft never posed as a solution? Where is the rough and tough media on this issue?
