Alexander: We Found $2 Trillion in Cuts; Why Can’t Politicians?

The 112th Congress didn’t accomplish much. But in its waning days unencumbered by electoral politics, it has the opportunity to make a lasting impression. We are a nation that is $16 trillion in debt, with trillion-dollar deficits. We need lawmakers to tackle our fiscal challenges in an open-minded and serious way, crafting effective, comprehensive proposals to reform our spending and tax policies and entitlement programs. Let’s at least get a down payment on that before the end of the year. Our hardworking staff of a dozen found $2 trillion.

It’s Congress’ turn. Get to work.

Ryan Alexander is president of Taxpayers for Common Sense.
