Case 2: What if the opening gambit had been let’s cut spending 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%. In this scenario we both won and spending was actually reduced a little right here and now.
Amount saved 15%

In signing HB2348, Brad Henry established a basis for citizens to legally partake in the craft of making wines, ciders, and craft beers. But the state forbids anyone with a past felony record from being able to make his own wine at home. Winemaker […]
Trump says a lot in a few words “We must do a lot more with less” Hiring freezes are already in place and he is working on a cabinet that knows how to manage wisely. All this bodes well for the overworked American taxpayer.

Just this January, it was reported that figures crunched at the end of Mr. Obama’s turn as POTUS determined that one of his pet project, SIG – School Improvement Grants – with their heavy emphasis on School Turnaround, was a dismal failure after an influx of taxpayer funds to the tune of 7 BILLION dollars.
