"We cannot come close to balancing the budget simply by cutting federal staffers or their salaries."No...but it's a good place to start and our government needs to start somewhere. Lots of small cuts add up to a larger sum. We need to suck it in for a few years and rely on the government less for services until the budget is balanced which won't be an easy thing to do or accept by many of us, but we must do it.I love the little pediacare girl in the pink dress who is dancing in those pediacare commercials. She's good and so cute.
