Community Service Can Solve the Problem

I read in this morning's paper, we have a $1.5 trillion deficit. How are we going to pay it? It's obvious the poor can't pay it. It's also obvious the rich, who have the means, refuse to pay it. So the task falls on the middle class. Some will help, some won't.

Community service can pay it. If the burden falls on government to see people are fed, why not trade food for community service? People can get fed, and the government can get it's debt paid.
