One major concern of the Tea Party movement is federal budget deficits. Since Tea Partiers are opposed to balancing budgets by raising taxes, that leaves spending cuts as the only available type of budget-balancing tool. If such spending cuts are desirable, which parts of the federal budget should be cut? To aid us in thinking about the desirability of budget cuts, I've posted on the Socrates Cafe Web site a table containing actual and projected federal budgets from 2009 until several years in the future. You can access it at

Also, don't forget about the "Contract from America," a policy agenda popular with many Tea Party supporters. You can read it at

Yours in Socrates,
