THAT IS the only way we are going to get out of this hole we have dug, and if it is less than a 10% across the board cut in spending, I don't see us moving anywhere in 4 years.

Now mind you, nationally legalizing marijuana and taxing the hell out of it, would be a great start to paying down that debt as well.... : )
Not just the taxing of the stuff, but the legal, taxable employment it would create as well!
