Exactly.

There is some stuff on there I'd rather not see cut, as I'd rather see them take a pay cut end end some foreign aid programs.

I think the programs that encourage energy efficiency should stay, and Amtrak subsidies, but only because I think we should be pushing more mass transit. Over all I like it though.

I agree with 1/2 of this. Fuck Amtrack. If the company can't make it on their own, it will allow competition, forcing lower pricing.

It looks like they are on the right track getting rid of things that kinda benefit themselves.

Eliminate death gratuity for Members of Congress.
Cut in half funding for congressional printing and binding. $47 million annual savings.
Cut Federal Travel Budget in Half. $7.5 billion annual savings.
Trim Federal Vehicle Budget by 20%. $600 million annual savings.
General Assistance to District of Columbia. $210 million annual savings.
Subsidy for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. $150 million annual savings.

Throw enough shit at the wall, something is gonna stick.

I can't believe this is even here.. WHY THE HELL is this even an issue? It shoul be automatic

Require collection of unpaid taxes by federal employees. $1 billion total savings.
Prohibit taxpayer funded union activities by federal employees. $1.2 billion savings over ten years.

You wouldn't be if you listened to what he has said all along instead of the liberal bullshit you embrace.
