Since Obama's been in office the debt has risen by $6T - if these had been eliminated in 2008, would the debt have risen by **only** $3.6T? That's not small change.
If we eliminated the US Military (all branches) we would save a hell of a lot as well. I mean sure it would tank our economy and make us vulnerable to threats but think of the savings!
