First, you prioritize what you want, and then you build a budget built on what you are willing to tax. In the world, there is this misconception you can pay for everything. You can’t so you prioritize. The rest of the world is learning this the hard way. Look at France, Italy, Greece, and Spain who are bankrupt from too many programs. What amazes me is the first thing people want to cut is veteran’s benefits. A country that does not honor its veteran’s first will not be a country for long. As a veteran who served 25 years in the service, there just isn’t an equivalent to the sacrifices. Yes, I am a disabled veteran. I find it offensive anyone would question my disability. I medical doctor diagnosed me with the conditions and I feel the pain. The process to get the VA disability is a long and difficult process. Ask the thousands who are still waiting years later like my brother-in-law.

I saw so much waste in the military on buildings and weapons programs that someone should be arrested, but it was legal. So, now we have debt crisis and the government is going after our medical benefits which was promised to us. They are going after our retirement benefits, too. Yes, Virginia, the government lies. You want to cut waste. Get rid of the food stamps program for abled body people (we are a fat nation according to pollsters – let’s go on a diet); reduce the free housing we give to abled body people (check out for yourself how much we spend on this program); penalize people who have kids out of wedlock over and over again to get benefits; get rid of the department of education, stop political fraud or crony capitalism (i.e. building billion dollar light rail trains – See Senator Reid), the list goes on and on. Go after the billions of waste to political operatives and pork barrel, etc. Get our military out of Europe; quit subsidizing the world in several many areas. The solutions are easy. Leave the vets alone. In prop 1, when the veteran dies, the spouse loses most if not the entire veteran’s income. Most will struggle. Prioritize what is important – Veteran’s first, and then work from there.
