I don't expect either the spending cuts or taxes to handle it completely...just reduce it. I just think if everyone across the board suffers we'll never get any significant change. Afterall, if the voters keep electing politicians that create the problem, then they need to feel the consequences.
"One White House official with knowledge of the conversations told me that the Russian ambassador raised the sanctions to Flynn and that Flynn responded that the Trump team would be taking office in a few weeks and would review Russia policy and sanctions. Thatís neither illegal nor improper." ~ Bloomberg
When do we get to see the transcript? Flynn, being in espionage, had to know his call was being recorded too.
