The Ruling Class Evades Another Question

You'll note that the Big Debate usually devolves to three options (each with variations.)

1) Raise taxes

2) Cut spending

3) Both.

Within the last two categories, there's discussion of cutting Defense and cutting Entitlements.

So what's missing?

Go ahead. Take 3 minutes. Cut Defense/Cut Entitlements.........and.........what?

There is NO word of cutting FedGov salaries by (say) 15% across the board, NOR any mention of simply deleting Cabinet agencies such as Education, Energy, and EPA.

Did I mention that all the "thought leaders" on the question live in D.C.? Must be just a co-incidence, eh?
