Sounds okay. Now let's figure out what we'd like to cut from Government. Defense? That's part of the constitutionally limited responsibilities (CLR). That's roughly half of discretionary spending (about $600 billion). The other $500 billion is things like EPA, NiH, FDA, NSTA, etc. Those are the agencies we use to protect us from those Americans which would not feel bad about making a buck off soiling America, sickening America, killing Americans, etc. The roads and bridges are in disrepair, we'll want those, we find them useful by and large. Science budgets are useful too, they help create the industries so your sproggs can have a shot at being employable in the future.
That leaves 2/3 of the budget for entitlements. Grandma doesn't really need her SS, she can come and live with you. By the way, her meds are expensive, you'll be wanting to pay for those as well. That's part of Medicare. In fact, the Blue Haired are now the Me Generation and they will demand you pay your fair share to support their Depends and other needs. Not a chance of cutting that back. Oh, we could privatize it. Sheesh, we can trust Wall Street to administer those funds without making off with the loot like they did in the last bubble.
There's Medicaid. That's for poor people so they don't die on your front lawn. They clearly can die anywhere without medical attention so we'll chop them off. Unemployment is popular, it turns out what Corporate America hates most of all is...err...us. So let's whack unemployment payments because it is your own damn fault if Corporate America disowns you. There's wellfare. Your sister who had 5 kids from 5 different fathers can simply raise them herself and keep them educated and out of gang-related activity, drug dealing, etc.
Okay. Now tell us again about all the untold savings we'll be realizing by restricting Government to CLR activities.
