Yup, that buck, two bits and a dime will go a long way to reducing it! How about some of the "defense" budget, with all the cost overruns and millions wasted on planes and ships? Here's just one:
"The radar-evading F-35 fighter jet, a nearly $400-billion weapons program under development for more than a decade, is facing its worst turbulence since Washington decided to buy it in 2001 ? when it was billed as the most affordable, lethal and survivable military aircraft ever built for the U.S. and its allies.
At a time when federal spending is under a microscope, the plan to develop and build 2,443 airplanes is hundreds of billions of dollars over budget. The F-35, known as the Joint Strike Fighter, has been delayed by glitches in its onboard computer systems, cracks in structural components and troubles with its electrical system.
A two-star general serving as the military's project manager was fired over the program's never-ending problems. The Pentagon has delayed orders of the aircraft, and the fighter jet is caught in the middle of a major spending fight in Congress. What's more, the plane has roiled political debate in Canada, the Netherlands and other allies that are picking up 10% of the development costs."
As of Aug 2011 each American owes $46,156 to pay off the deficit and getting worse each year. Everything should be "on the table", including the "Bird".
It costs each American $1.35 PER YEAR to fund all PBS programs. No wonder the deficit is so high...
Que pena haber arruinado una foto con tanta historia!!!!
Didn't notice big bird in there until I did the puzzle......lol
