Since I helped foot the bill for this election cycle I do not mind one bit stating a goal for the 112th US Congress convening on Monday, January 3, 2011.

That goal is to bring the federal budget down to 12% of Gross Domestic Product. A target.

This is course is going to set up a constitutional battle in the eyes of our, shall we say, more liberal RJ constituency.

If so, so be it. A similar battle is looming around the 18th amendment concerning healthcare.

Fortunately, FDR did not appoint the cuurent, shall we say, more conservative majority sitting on the court.


Now how much money was it NPR received last year? You get the idea. On our way down to that 12.
