Cut the deficit by $1 Quadrillion

Here is Don Surber's plan to balance the budget by cutting the deficit by $1 quadrillion over the next 1,000 years. The highlights include:

* Investing $50 billion in high-speed rail so we can force people to give up their automobiles.

* Reducing gasoline taxes by $10 billion a year because everybody is taking the (expletive) high-speed rail.

* Imposing $770 billion in new taxes over 10 years ($77 billion a year) to pay for a $540 billion health program nobody understands over 6 years ($90 billion year) before realizing that we are losing $13 billion a year on this program.

* Another $100 billion investment in education so that the United States can remain ahead of Costa Rica.

* Investing another $15 billion a year to feed kids more free food so we can fight the childhood obesity caused by giving away free breakfasts, free lunches and food stamps that can be used to buy potato chips.

* Spending $10 billion a year to keep down rising college costs.

Your Say

Eliminate Carter's Department of Education and not a sole would miss it. Excepting of course the pigs at the trough. Savings, - a half of trillion over ten years.

Not a sole would miss it? Is it the dept of education for schools of fish.

The management would appreciate it if the commentors would quit fishing for cheap laughs.

I thought the management was off trolling other waters.
