Thats cute, you think a national budget of $3.8 Trillion isn't enough to fund something like that. How much does the federal government need before it will fund that? $5Trillion, $10 Trillion?
4 years ago we spent $850 Billion on "infrastructure" and "shovel ready jobs" because the infrastructure needed $1.2 Trillion in fixing up at the time. Today we need $2 Trillion. How much of that $850 Billion went to where it was promised to go? None.
Why do you think giving them MORE money will fund something that will help you? They steal it, all of it. Cut the bureaucrats, you won't notice, except you may have to pay less in taxes. Until they can show they are responsible, I say we cut the federal budget in half every year until they are responsible.
If a 1% cut means cutting tuition reimbursment for active military, but also continues tuition reimbursment for illegal aliens and a $250 Million hand out to Egypt, its pretty clear that the Federal government has declared war on its people and the best we could hope for is to defund it until it behaves.
