Can we honestly expect the government to cut spending?

"Right now, it's falling on the taxpayer broadly, but also on that next generation," Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said during a congressional trip to New Orleans.

When does anything the government do not fall on the taxpayer????

Sigh....

@Brent cv,
They could start by not paying ppl as much on the coast. I know as far as demolition goes, the guys driving the bulldozers are getting over 10k a house to demolish and pile them up.
I'm not looking forward to seeing how this turns out...gonna be paying for this for a while.

@Brent cv,
The government should never need to raise taxes ever again. If the government was ran like a business, we'd be pulling a ******* huge profit every year.

@Brent cv,
I really don't know where the hell they're gonna get the money for all of this w/o increasing taxes. The president says to avoid an increase in taxes he will cut some Govt programs...yeah ok, the social programs are always the first to go:nope:

There will be no social security left by the time I want to apply for it, I've given up on that.

Social Security should be 100% optional.

I dont need the government telling me how to save my money.

You are not really saving anything, you are paying for the retirees of today.

@Brent cv,
I will be collecting SS in 2-3 years and it pisses me off that you guys coming after me won't get much or any at all . This is because of gov't mismanagement of the SS system . They have constantly "borrowed " from SS and never paid back !
Private investment and job longevity with good retirement plans is the only way you younger guys will be able to retire comfortably . I also don't like the plan being proposed to have you "invest" part of your income through the SS system .

@Brent cv,
Well I don't mind paying it right now. I have a grandmother that is enjoying the benefits of what they take from my paycheck; its not much, but she manages. As far as my retirement, I have already started saving up. I do not intend on relying on the Govt when I'm old.
