    Default Why we can't cut the budget--an example

    This is an example of how political contributions and lobbying make it impossible to have a rational approach to the budget. Multiply that by the $11.5 billion spent in lobbying expenses in 2011 alone.

    In this vein I would like to insert a quote from Thomas Jefferson:
    I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
    Thomas Jefferson
