We hear talk about entitlement. “Gotta cut entitlements.” Okay, we have a medical health care cost problem. And the cost of Medicare is going through the roof.
But there are so many areas that no one mentions. How about a marginal tax rate like it was in the 1950s? Do we really need 12, a whole dozen, nuclear carrier strike groups? Can we really afford them?
No one ever mentions a ten percent trim on the Dept of Defense? MacDonald Douglas really has to spend that T&D money on a $35 billion apiece Joint Strike Fighter, don’t they?
Might it be possible to close those Cayman Island/Swiss Bank Account tax dodges?
Just some random thoughts.
