EXOP - Office of Management and Budget

Looking at pennies and ignoring dollars ...

The federal budget is pretty simple to understand. 80% of the spending (in normal times) is on 5 WILDLY popular programs that will NEVER be cut: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Interest and Defense. Until the nation is willing to confront this simple fact, all you are doing is asking us to count and ration paper clips. Favorite targets like spending on Israel & Egypt, illlegal immigrants, wastefraudabuse and especially Federal employee salaries and their office expenses are PENNIES compared to the real Federal spending dollars. You are not going to get anywhere with this. You'll win one battle and lose the war.
