We hear a lot of political campaign rhetoric this year. One political party accuses the other of cutting the budget while the other party offers a plan that will not cut the budget. Our country has a deficit of more than 16 trillion dollars. It seems to me that each political party should offer a budget that cuts spending. It seems to me that if we do not stop adding to our federal deficit, there may be dire financial consequences (refer to Greece, Spain and some California cities).
