If I were in charge I would cut several hundred worthless programs, keep those folks on the books doing common labor, not replace any retiring folks for at least a year, and tell Obama to stay the hell home. Finally, I would do my own version of the nine, nine, nine program starting in 2014. A 9% cut in every budget in every office in the federal goverment (the waste in government is at obscene levels) . I would cut the federal payroll by 9% (these people are overpayed). Finally, I would throw out the current tax code and replace with a 9% flat tax on every dollar earned by every working citizen. Everyone would have skin in the game. Also, if you're on the dole you don't vote the following year. If you don't contribute you don't vote.
