Neither party has the will to cut spending


Stop funding “green” energy technology. If and when it will work, the private sector will do it. End the departments of Energy and Education and Obamacare. Stop regulating the coal industry out of existence. In addition, a simple 1 percent across-the-board spending cut in all government programs and departments would save more than $37 billion. Just 1 percent!

No. 2: Do you want to be the president who sent America over the “fiscal cliff?” You wanted to raise the debt ceiling in 2011. You then created this monster, now you deal with it! Bear in mind history remembers Hoover and Carter, not the speaker of the House and Congress.
