To ME, "limited gov't" means if the private sector can do it better and cheaper, then the gov't has no business getting involved with it. We have no use for agencies like HUD, EPA, Education and Energy..all they do is employ bureaucrats to push paper and who then sit around thinking of ways to justify their existence...most are run by busy bodies and control freaks and are used to harass people into compliance with dictates that the gov't had no business involving itself in in the first place...does the phrase vicious circle come to mind? defund them all and their regs and you wouldn't need to cut much more than that.

The constitution prohibits those agencies anyway. Simply following the law would solve about 90% of the problems we have with government.

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.”
