I am so disappointed in the responses. Don't ask me for one red cent. Ask someone else. When you ask someone else, they say go ask you.
This was about what you personally would give up to help balance the budget. Not what the government should cut. Stop protecting Japan, pensions for congressman etc. Anything but what would effect you personally.
I've got news for you. We cant cut our way out of this mess. Revenues have to be raised. You are going to give something back whether you want to or not.
Attempted troll/humor while discussing potential child abuse

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.
I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
