We balance our budget by not spending more than we take in. How big should government be? It should be big enough to provide the protection and services we, the people, need. We have to provide enough funds to achieve that. Too many rich people and corporations are taking advantage of our benefits without paying their fair share. Sane and reasonable reduction of government along with increased revenue from the wealthy are necessary if we are to survive and thrive in the world.
