You say you want to cut taxes and spending? Fine, spending first. You eat your vegetables before you get dessert. You mow the lawn before you go golfing. You do your homework before you watch TV. Do the work first, you can reward yourself after.
I'm fine with this. Let's start slashing spending. The primary opponents to this plan have "D" after their name.
