What a bunch of whiners. We have continued to spend at an unsustainable rate, all anyone can do is say not my pet program. The time has come to slash it to the bone, in my opinion. Kinda a do over if you will. Politicians need to get into unadulterated history and find what made this a great country. Figure out what the Federal government is and is not supposed to do. Then just do it. Let the community do what it should always do, help their own. Not pawn it off on the government. Let business's do what they have always done, make a lot of money and some of it gets spent to start things like libraries, clinic's and the sort. It's time to go old school and do it like American's do, and do it right.

Surely you're not advocating the doing away with the massive tax breaks given the Christian Churches that have sprouted up on every other corner.
