Until the budget is balanced, we don't need shit like this.
So you'll happily accept cutting your ridiculous military expenditure right? You spend more than the next 10 countries combined, most of which goes to military contractors on cost+ contracts. How about a 10% cut. That's $60B, not counting what you spend on the Iraq and Afghanistan boondoogles, they're not paid for either.
Or allow the government to negotiate drug and medical procedure prices with private industry and use its negotiating power as a large buyer in Medicare/Tricare right? You expect government to buy everything else at the cheapest possible price, why subsidize pharmaceuticals?
Or stop subsidizing ethanol production which promotes overproduction, artificial food inflation by diverting food production to uneconomic fuel production and socializes rural industry at the cost of urban individuals?
All of those would save substantially more than you are worried about in terms of year-on-year expenditure. But it doesn't fit into everyone's "omg the sky is falling" bullshit.
