Do away with the NEA, EPA, Energy and Obama care and convince all of us about limited government.

How about getting rid of: The Dept of Energy; The Dept of Education (what a joke); The Interior Dept; the BATFE, Dept of Homeland Security ( an organization of THUGS); Reducing the Presidents Staff, entourage, hangers on, and family. Let's also cut out ALL the benefits for Congress critters.

The Washington Post notes the following quote from Rep. Paul Ryan in his CPAC speech: 

“We don’t see the debt as an excuse to cut with abandon, to shirk our obligations,” Ryan said. “We see it as an opportunity to reform government, to make it cleaner and more effective. That’s what conservatives stand for.”
