We need to trim (or slash) expenses all over the place and everyone needs to recognize that some of the goodies they currently get to take advantage of need to be sacrificed for the greater good.
$3 billion of taxpayer $'s every year to Big Oil who are making $100 Billion in profit every year is insane. Paying people to not grow anything on their land. All these food subsidies need to go. Mortgage dedutions on 2nd homes. morgtage dedutions on first home only up to 1 million. There are a lot of options to make this happen.
