Who has come close to a balance budget? Only one I can remember is Bill Clinton. X:X The republicans have had more than ample opportunity in the past 30 years, but they just say NO. No, no, no, while spending, spending, spending.
I haven’t read Rand Paul’s proposal, but how does one overcome the obstructionism of the Republicans? They only work for themselves, not the country. We saw in the last budget battle they will not compromise on anything. How do you deal with that attitude?
