Once implemented, we will finally have a balanced budget and start paying down our debt.
The Common Sense 10 year plan we will cut 10 to 15 trillion dollars over the next 10 years from what the career politicians are expecting to spend. Reduce our budget from the current level of 3.9 trillion down to 2.4 trillion dollars. Encourage domestic and foreign investment in our economy and create millions of American jobs.
