Agree with Rachel98 on removal of roadblocks, but we also need to reduce or eliminate agencies. Why continue the Department of Education? As long as EPA has the ability to define their role (fox guarding the hen house) they will always be a 'fear factor' to economic development. And the duplication/overlap between agencies must be eliminated.
Don't believe Defense should be exempted from 10% reduction. Does anyone believe there is no waste or fraud in defense?
Waste and fraud is inherent in any government program, i.e. privatize (much less waste and fraud) social security and medicare.
