I would like to show my support for the Joint Deficit Reduction Committee. I understand that there are difficult opposing forces focused on the committee; one side is adamant about not raising taxes on the wealthiest among us, the other is reluctant to cut services in Medicare and Social Security.
The one thing I think we can all agree on is that we must reduce the deficit. The Joint Deficit Reduction Committee have been granted a huge opportunity with an up or down vote – I support the center road and GO BIG! If all they can get is a $4 trillion reduction package now, GOOD, start there and later work for more, but GO BIG!
