Does anyone else see the unrational way congress and the president have to link every problem with every other problem in government. Why does the tax code have to be fixed at the exact same time we do spending cuts ? and visa versa. Fix the tax code congress Cut spending congress , cut waste, reduce the military Improve on health care regulations, catch welfare cheats and the big gov. crooks and on and on, I know these guys have the time, they are on vacation regularly and they have staff so they don't have to actually do a lot of number crunching themselves. We don't need a large grand plan, just fix one problem at a time and lets see how that works.
