Eliminate food stamps, feed the poor with prepard food.

Eliminate the NPS, turn national parks over to the states.

Eliminate all foriegn aid.

Establish a flat tax, eliminate the IRS.

Eliminate either the DOD or DHS, we don't need 2 very expensive departments defending the USA.

Eliminate all SS disability and survivor benefits.

Eliminate SS payments for anyone with a retirement income over $100,000.

Withdraw our military from all foreign nations unless they want to pay for our presence. Deploy the military to USA borders.

Accept NO new people into the USA until unemployment is FULL, 1%.

Eliminate the Border Patrol, DOD or DHS can do that.

Establish a 50% tarrif on all goods from countries that don't adhere to the USA standards of worker compensation, protection, environment, carbon footprint, peace etc.

Subsidize super insulation of structures to reduce energy consumption.

Subidize only new energy that is proven to return on investments.

For starters..

The govt could cut out the funding for PBS.
.
PBS did fine even before the govt stuck it's 'oar' into the funding.
.
A good portion of the cash that keeps PBS afloat is the merchandise it sells due to various TV shows like Sesame Street, Clifford, Word Girl, etc....

Umm, Obama didn't invent food stamps, and the vast majority of the poor receiving food stamps aren't there because they want to be.
Out of curiosity, I wonder what it costs to keep many thousands of US troops in Germany. It's good to know that we have Germany well protected from the Poles though.
And how many other countries as well. Seems like a waste of resources and manpower when we have the technology to see a pimple on a gnats ass from 200 miles in space.
