    There are a whole lot of places that can be cut including congress. In addition to the executive branch, cut national congressional operational funding by 10% per year for 5 years. Freeze national congressional / administrative / support staff pay for the next 10 years. Eliminate all open reqs immediately. However, all executive departments and agencies at the federal level should cut programs by 5% each year for the next 5 years except for those efforts that directly support combat ops, counter-illegal immigration ops, or DHS ops. However, each agency should still be held to a budget cut of 5% made up of cuts to programs that do not directly support combat ops, counter-illegal immigration ops, or DHS ops. VA care (except for service connected maladies) as well as Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid should be means tested.

  • Health care

    My comment is why they allowing the Health Care go up when the Federal Employees are not getting a raise. The years I have been a goverment worker and if we did not get a raise our health benefits paid would stay the same. I except the freeze but I do not except the Health Care going up and no raise. Congress should do something about that.
