Everyone is talking about the dinner meeting last night with President Obama and several GOP Senators. Now I wonder if those fellas paid for that dinner themselves, or charged it to the American taxpayer? I would have preferred the President take a lesson from the movie “Dave.” Just find a simple person, a good CPA, and go line by line through the federal budget. What a great scene that was. Instead of these folks going out for a swanky dinner, they should have ordered some Chick-fil-A with the sweet tea on their own dime and locked themselves in a room with 2-3 CPAs and this morning announce they found $400B/yr to trim off the federal budget over the next ten years. OK, a fella can dream, can’t he?
Perfect! But Allen, here you go again with that common sense talk!!!
I’ve always thought that it would be good to go through all the laws on the books and just get rid of the ones that make no sense, or are no longer relevant to modern society, or are just plain Unconstitutional. I’m sure that we could pare down the size of the law books by 1/3. If we were to put all the lawyerspeak into plain English, we could cut it down to 1/2.
I am far from a CPA, but as a retired businessman, I could find at least 100 billion. But it is too politically incorrect and would therefore never be appropriate for politicians to try. Common sense has become unlawful in the polituboro.
