Excerpt

Coalition Northeast Regional Director Jeff Thiebert gave a PowerPoint presentation on how the government gets its revenue, what it spends the most money on, what expenditures are increasing the most (in this case, healthcare), what revenues have been compared to expenditures since 1980, and what the projections are for 2020. Attendees then had a chance to review 35 different options for reducing defense and discretionary spending, along with tax changes and entitlement spending.
