Are tax increases the only way to prevent cuts to essential social service programs?

    Not neccessarily. It would require some good beaurocracy, but social programs could be upkept and even improved without increasing taxes. It would require a restructuring of the U.S. budget, a reallocation of resources from unimportant or inneffective systems to the ones that are essential. Obama promised to go through the Budget like a surgeon with a scalpel. However, because of the stimulus package, he has probably been doing more spending than cutting recently.


    If the government took some money away from lets say for arguments sake, the army and foriegn debt relief, it could easily improve certain social programs. Likewise, if the government dropped its subsidies to U.S. farmers, there would be alot more money for the government to allocate elsewhere
