- Tax cuts for the wealthy
- Slash benefits for everyone else
- Cut benefits so the ultra-rich (who own the U.S. military-industrial complex) can become even wealthier at the direct expense of everyone else
- Rev up military spending to higher than at any time since WWIII

This is exactly why they crashed the economy: They did it so they could claim that we must have a cut in sharing, in benefits.
