How long to get out of debt?

Deal Score0

If we raised sales tax by 3-5 cents on the dollar, made drug tests mandatory for welfare (if you fail you don’t get any) and lowered the amount returned from taxes and cut spending on defense by 5 cents on the dollar, pulled out of Iraq, how long would it take to get out of debt? would this plan help?

    Sales tax is determined by state… so, it won’t help the federal debt. Drug tests will never be mandatory in welfare because it would be the children who would suffer… unfortunately.

    It probably wouldn’t help because the government would keep spending more than we have even if we increased income. I think we should cut the salaries of all of our federally elected officials until the debt is under control. Maybe if our congressmen, Senators & President knew they weren’t going to make as much they would stop spending so much.
