What about military bases, large and small, in over 100 countries? What about payments to the united nations? What about 'foreign aid', for heaven's sake? Why doesn't anybody suggest cutting these areas? Why talk about reducing expenditures for posts and bases inside the country and ignore all the ones in other countries?
Why only look at social security and medicare when most of the people using them paid into them their entire working life? It's the criminals in congress (con - con artists) who spent all the money in the social security trust fund and left it empty with a bunch of iou's.
Eliminate some of the departments that have obviously done no good; like dept of education and the dept of energy. Good grief!
