A Balanced Budget Ammendment

It seems clear after years of trying to tackle our ongoing deficit spending, that Congress has neither the will nor perhaps the desire to truly manage the people's money. While today is NOT the time balance the budget by increasing revenues and cutting services, it IS the time to plan for that day. Politically, the populace is nervous about the debt, the Republicans (disingenuously) rant about "liberal spending," and ...more »

Make income taxing easier on Americans

Every year our tax code grows. It's well over a million pages. It's full of loopholes, exceptions and exclusions that pretty much only benefit the wealthy and, most of all, the politicians that wrote the code and stuffed it into another Bill as pork. There should be a flat income tax of 25% for everyone; rich, poor, corporate..everyone/thing with an income. This would give everyone a tax break right off the bat. A huge ...more »

Student Loan Repayment Solution

Recent college graduates bring new skills and enthusiasm to the workplace. Copious amount of student debt however, force students into debt before they can establish themselves into the workforce and even before graduation. This is particularly problematic in a time where employers often check credit scores and financial records prior to offering jobs. A stimulus package is needed to encourage college graduates at all ...more »

Allow The Export of The F-22 Fighter To Our Closest Allies

With the DOD planning to stop the purchase of additional F-22 fighters, it's likely that the production line for the F-22 will close. When a weapons production line closes, there is little likelihood of ever restarting it in the event of a war. At the same time, we can't afford to keep the production line open ourselves. Unlike previous times we've shutdown fighter programs, there's no replacement programs planned ...more »

Tax the top rich now

We have huge debt. Obama instead is promising to let tax cuts to top 1% rich expire in 2010. It will be 2011 before the money even flows into our treasury. Movie stars don't need million dollar weddings, numerous homes, etc. Billionaires are very common today while our society can't pay to run our government. Our large, educated middle class made us the great democracy "we were". If you are lucky to prosper in our ...more »

Don't spend every cent

First, my background, I spend 22.5 years in the active duty Air Force, serving my country. Why is it that the federal govt has to spend every penny that it's given? In the AF I saw the same thing every year. At the beginning of the fiscal year we were given our budget. At the 10th or 11th month of that same fiscal year, we were told to spend all the money we had left over, we HAD to spend it. New chairs, desk, computers, ...more »

The government has had a tough time setting a budget. The effects of global warming are evident has time progresses. The deficit continues to grow with overseas affairs.

Lowering taxes and balancing the budget

During the Great Depression in Wörgl Austria a new monetary system was introduced. The economy started to do very well. Money circulated 14 times faster and tax income rose 1,300%. Because the money was backed by Austrian Schilling, this money had the same value. If tax income in the US rises 1,300%, there is room to end the income tax and lower all other kinds of taxes.

Common sense ways to jump start the economy

Apparently they don't want unemployment to go down yet. They want the sheeple to be dependent on the government. Until the idiots in DC get removed, no one will have any confidence in what is going to happen. I am a small business owner and everyone I talk to says the same thing, it is a lack of confidence in our elected officials. Once they know what is going to happen they will start spending again. I know I will not ...more »

Forget about Resolution of the Birth-Certificate 'Issue'!

(or rather, non-issue) No matter what document he displays NOW, no matter what series of heavily-locked vaults he puts it in, no matter how the paper smells (even if you have C. Everett Koop himself sign on his medical honor that the carbon-date tests show that the certificate Obama shows is the self-same one that was printed as he lay in the manger of the Hawaiian stable) ... SOMEBODY is going to claim that it's ...more »

More technology in high schools

I think the federal government needs to spend more on technology in the classroom. Technology is THE way not just to a greener future (less paper waste) but efficiency and real accountability. On another note, I think google can help the government and the education sector much more effectively than microsoft has been able to with their Outlook Exchange servers.
