The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.
~ Ronald Reagan ~
Here is how we cut government spending: enact spending freezes, privatize multiple agencies, repeal multiple job-killing regulations. Additionally, we must strengthen Social Security (via private accounts), Medicare and Medicaid, which represent 70% of total spending. All three programs will run out of money in 2035, 2029, and 2028 respectively.
Enacting spending freeze at Department of Defense, Dept. of Agriculture, Dept. of Justice, Dept. of Homeland Security, Dept. of State;
Privatize Energy, HUD, Commerce, Interior, and Education Departments; Postal Service and Amtrak.
Defund Public Broadcasting, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, Planned Parenthood.
Repeal ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, federal minimum wage, National Labor Relations Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, Davis-Bacon Act, Americans with Disabilities Act
Restore Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to long term solvency; allow younger workers to privately invest a portion of Social Security taxes in individual accounts. This will create a system that treats women, minorities, and young people more fairly.
