@Pelham1861:

I agree with Alex B. but if we're really bankrupt, how about cutting these items first, rather than the $1B - $2B we spend on bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure each year. I haven't seen Rep. Cantor advocate any of these.

1) Ending our $2 trillion involvement in endless tribal feuds in Iraq and Afghanistan.
2) Ending billions of dollars of tax loopholes for oil companies.
3) Ending billions of dollars of tax loopholes for hedge-fund managers (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/07/opinion/07kristof.html)
4) Ending hundreds of billions of dollars of farm subsidies.
5) Reducing the $650B we spend on defense each year (excluding the aforementioned endless Iraq/Afghanistan wars).
