I found this great video explaining the Sequester for people who don’t quite understand exactly whats going on. The Youtube channel that it’s on is really informative. You can look it over HERE. The Sequester video is below.
I believe that cuts in areas do need to be made. I believe the military needs to stop using “contractors” to do jobs that they can do on their own. Like guard gates and cook food, laundry and grounds keeping. That would be a HUGE cut and still allow the government to actually give our soldiers raises so that they can have living wages for families. This David goes into a little more detail on the disaster of “contractors” has on our military and politics.
Comprehensive cuts in key places and making EFFECTIVE taxes for corporations equal to the the actual tax rates. No more welfare to those companies as well. DOn’t get me started on the Facebook bull. If there was someone I could throw a shoe at I would. *Facepalm*
There are two things I believe should be increased not cut. Education and Social Security, medicare and medicaid. No more money from those programs should be used for ANYTHING else than for what people pay into it for. PERIOD.
Education is a huge investment in the whole country. Why has it always seemed that it wasn’t taken as seriously as it should be by politicians who send their kids to private schools?
One day when our health system is to par with the rest of the industrialized worlds will I get to discuss that. Sadly, it doesn’t.
