Boehner just whining about cutting the "Drivers" of our debt.

If you haven't heard, it's no longer "Entitlements" we need to cut, it's "The Drivers of our debt" They will never have the guts to say it's Medicare and Social Security and the Main Stream Media never ask them the question. What Entitlements???? What Drivers????

3. I agree.

Add in oil tax breaks and subsidies, along with corporate farm subsidies, all kinds of "corporate" welfare and how about all the extras congress gets, lets take them away also. So why don't we tackle those "drivers of our debt" first and see how much we can save there Mr. Boehner?

I am also sure we can find a whole lot of other "debt" drivers besides SS, medicare, vets benefits, and cuts to programs that help the poor.
