"Now more than ever, we must eliminate needless spending wherever possible," President Obama said at a press conference Wednesday. "When we sat down to go over our annual budget, we asked ourselves, where can we safely trim back? What programs can we do away with without negatively impacting the American people? Which bloated and ineffective institutions can we no longer justify having around?"
"The answer was obvious," Obama added. "The U.S. Senate just needed to go."
You know, he might be onto something...why stop there? While at it, we should eliminate the Executive Branch, House of Representatives and the US Supreme Court. We can reconvene a new Continental Congress and reform the whole thing with cost reduction in mind. Might be an interesting exercise!
