What abt a balanced Budget amendment? $50 billion doesnt even pay the Chinese for the money we borrowed from them, per year.

The military is one of the only things the government is constitutionally provisioned to do. If you think it should be used for defense only, that's fine. But that would still require a large military for a country of this size and power.

I believe Paul Ryan had a plan to get to some kind of fiscal sanity when he headed the house budget committee. Yes a lot of changes would need to be made for us to be financially solvent for future generations.

Also End War on drugs( especially Pot). It is a waste of money. It would be swing from costing billions to us making billions. Also would cut down on crime, since illegal drugs are what keep the cartels running.
Cut Defense spending. According to this article, we could save over 688billion( from 2013 to 2022) from the defense budget, and even with these savings, we would be at the 2007 spending budget for the DoD, which is when we were still in Iraq and Afiganistan.
Let the bush tax cuts expire, close all loop holes.( or adopt a new tax code similar to paul ryan without the no capital gains tax.)
