Are you concerned about the financial future of the United States of America?  Are you upset that Washington D.C. seems incapable of reforming the Social Security and Medicare entitlements?  I have a solution, and with your help we can make it a reality.


The America’s Budget Buster fix is a flat tax with optional entitlements.  With this fix, Americans can opt-in to or opt-out of Social Security and Medicare.  The 25-page ebook explains the mathematical rationale behind the system, as well as useful formulas for calculating compound interest.


The reality of our situation is pretty simple.  Social Security and Medicare, as they are now, are rapidly becoming insolvent.  We need to gradually wean the American public from entitlements.  Reform is possible if we can mount popular support for this idea.  You can help to make this plan a reality by doing the following.
