So there's the problem. Our country is running the risk of going bankrupt if we don't begin spending less than we take in. But, no one receiving payments and benefits want to see them cut either. Basically, the "not in my backyard" problem. Everyone wants a solution, but only if it effects someone else.I propose we start publishing a list of all government programs, grouped by agency, ranked by total expenditures, and let the public decide which beneficiaries are more deserving of their tax dollars. Got a better idea?
