If we can't cut 2.5 percent, $85 billion, out of the federal budget, is there any hope?

When it is all said and done, we will be lucky if the budget is cut by half that amount. That is about 8 percent of the federal deficit, so even if that much is cut, we will still go in the hole by almost $1 trillion more.

At the end of the year, $16 trillion in debt will be $17 trillion in debt. Is there no hope to save our country?
