Question about Obama's blueprint?

Concerning the national debt, Obama's blueprint says: "Restore Fiscal Discipline in Congress Obama will reinstate pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) budget rules, so that new spending or tax cuts are paid for by spending cuts or new revenue elsewhere." So, how much does he think universal healthcare costs? How much will his tax increases account for? And what programs will he cut? I know he wants less governmental jobs to be 'no-bid' contracts...sounds pretty vague...can't get a number on how much money that might save. I also no he 'wants to cut pork barrell spending.' However, keep in mind this is only about $20 billion per year. We need at least a few hundred BILLION to break even. Add another few hundred BILLION for universal healthcare at least. WHERE DOES THE MONEY COME FROM? ...and no, I am not a McCain supporter. I am asking a question about what I feel is the greatest threat america faces: the deficit, the debt, and the dollar.

Obama wants to expand govt to the tune of 6 trillion. I don´t think he will cut enough or cut the wrong programs, like our military, and the debt will continue to soar. Bill Clinton ran on cutting the deficit, and that's why he won. Obama doesn´t get it, you cannot expand govt and make the dollar or economy stronger... More

The only real answer to your questions is TAXES. Who do you think will pay for all these programs? Yes, the RICH Americans, the Americans that have worked to the bone to better their life and the life of their families, the Americans that make more than $250.000.00 a year, isn't that a kick? but there will not be help...
