While it's fun and satisfying to rage at this kind of waste, it is a mere drop in the bucket. Even if we cut all of this kind of waste, it will do very little to reduce the federal deficit. The only good they do is to help create the culture of reducing government. The necessary cuts to have an impact are ones that terrify even the most serious budget cutters: social security and other entitlements, and the military. We may also need to cut entire government departments. These are cuts guaranteed to upset the right and left wing.
