Better ways to reduce our debt over 10 years

The Republicans have made a stand. Apparently, the spending problems we have here in the U.S. are caused by food stamps. Dropping 3.8 million people from the program is the way to save the budget, even though 75 percent of recipients are on assistance for less than nine months; 72 percent are families with children, including veterans; and the remainder are primarily elderly or disabled. Very few are able-bodied adults.
