The political ads for this election cycle are out of control. On one hand the Republican ads always talk about the need to cut spending and decrease the deficit. But the other side is always talking about how TERRIBLE a Senator or Congressman or Governor is if they had voted or plans to cut spending in things like Medicare, Social Security, Defense or Education or eliminate tax breaks.

This is insane! How are American Political Leaders ever going to cut spending if they are attacked by all these special interest groups on television and made to seem like the devil themselves for cutting the programs that make up 80% of the budget?

Neither team has any intention of cutting spending, just different areas to distribute it to.
