Comment: A look at the list teaches less about who'll get paid than a much somber story: there is no way the government will ever be able to save on the basis of choise. Any item is political poison. Mortal choices would have to be made: leave your soldiers in the dirt or leave your elderly without medical care, pay your bondholders or give help to the poor, and on and on.
