Much too simple: it will never work

The government is in a jam. It spends far more than it "earns". Actually, it does not earn much at all: it taxes. If the out exceeds the in, the coffers run dry. So: the government borrows. As long as it pays the interest on time, the lenders are okay. If the government can't pay, the loans default. This is very bad.

The problem arises because the government has two priorities: spend more and tax less.

If you have read my prior blogs, you know that I believe that real health care reform is possible. Health care expenditures represent roughly 40% of the budget, roughly equivalent to the military budget. Before the government got into the health care funding business in the mid-sixties, the health care budget was under 3%. I believe that with real health care finance reform we can return to the days of single digit federal health care budgets.

There are myriad other examples of potential wonderfully effective savings, but they, too require radical rethinking and reform.

I am not a tax expert at all. I can do arithmetic pretty well. It is clear to everyone that there are remarkable inequities in current tax structure. The recently restructured rules are still vast and complex. Without going into all the bizarre rules and regulations., I propose eliminating them all. I propose an across the board 15% tax for every tax entity. For individuals and families, the taxes would start if earnings were above an impoverished limit. No deductions for anything. No corporate loopholes. Nothing. Stop using taxes as a means to provide support or incentives. Just tax.

Without touching the military or any "pork", I have hereby solved the most complex problems that our government faces.

Much too simple. It will never work.

Ha ha! Nice parody! Unfortunately, some of these scams are not so clear.

I never heard of ASEA before. On quick glance at their website, I see no info offered on how they actually produce this "first and only perfectly balanced mixture of stabilized Redox Signaling molecules that exists outside the body."

I also came across this review, which says the same as you said:

There are good supplements and foods out there that can benefit our health; this is not one of them.
