Everybody is overlooking the simple fact that the only cuts being made are from the American citizens...whether from the seniors, teachers, veterans,or military doesn't matter... its unacceptable !!!! If the trillions of dollars stopped being handed out over seas and to the illegals we wouldn't have the problems we do today !! Not to mention the damn government.... that's where the first cuts need to be made and we the people need to demand it rather than bickering back and forth with eachother !!!! And there ya go problem solved !!!
Electing the same people overand over assures that nothing will change

Your post is nothing more than the usual so called "my child has special needs" parenet that is so demanding that their child get services outside of their home
How about instead you have your little offal spend the day with you so that instead of heading on over to Edwardsville Crossing while being on your cell phone you instead watch your procreation instead of expecting the rest of us to pay for it
You had the brat...you pay for it

seems to me that we have too many "administrative" positions. they get HUGE salaries even bigger retirement packages and FULL medical. wtf!? you need teachers not 10 to 2 administrators. hell, they even get freekin assistants!! And our kids suffer in the process.

I think we would have a lot more money if we cut the military budget to 1/4 of what they spend. 1/2 trillion a year is unsustainable.
