Re: Anyone want to predict the outcome of the health care case?
That is not quite what I said, but my concern is still what in the $3.598 trillion in federal outlays can be cut quick enough to get anywhere near our $2.303 trillion in tax revenue. That is where I am with the politically impossible argument. Even the damn tea party cannot live without entitlements, which is what... 43% or more of that federal outlays number. Regardless, just to make this a spending only issue well north of a $Trillion needs to go. You would have to cut into entitlements, defense, and a host of other things. Republicans plans will not go that far.
