The government needs to have a audit to find out where all the wasteful spending goes to off set this increased spending. This system is broken and it does not work any more. Government officials on both sides need to come up with new and more effective and organized ways to fund the government in the future. The federal government is so giant and bloated and out of control it needs to be down sized. It is so big that they do not really know how to pay for everything and so we keep going further into debt. It is time for a convention of the states with term limits for congress and other government officials and balanced budget amendment.
