We both pointed to what a majority the country wants. They want spending cuts but not to SS & Medicare. So that leaves defense spending which is outrageously high. That leaves oil subsidies,how many bases do we actually need in foreign countries. A majority of the country doesn't mind taxes,when justified. Tarriffs are far too low. Hell in Medicare you can cut out over payments. There are other options out there. Rethugs are just using the situation to do away with programs they don't like.
