Political Debate: Topic 2

There are three general ways to state one’s approach to budgetary issues: 1) In broad goals, such as budget balanced or not, high or low taxes, etc., 2) In details, as in which programs should be cut or expanded, which taxes or types of taxes should be cut or raised, etc., and 3) As political strategy, how does one approach the battle of the budget, what can one pass, what issues can be on the table and how one can get the other side to move your way.
What would your priorities be in terms of reshaping the budget and the budget process? Please illustrate with at least one concrete detail, and give some attention to how you and your political allies could help put your principles into action.
