some of these do need to be cut

Others as you said just make you go, wtf.

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Peanuts and nonsense. Ryan is a fraud just like the rest of


That's only 250 Billion (at best) a year. While that sounds like a lot of money, relative to the deficit and the budget, it's a mere "haircut."

Of course, they like to tout "over 10 years." What ever happened to "savings starting NOW?"

That's because while you won't be looking, they're going to re-pass all this crap under another name, or simply manage not to actually repeal anything.

They are ALL liars and thieves.

Not a single congressman or Senator on the Hill is proposing to ONLY spend according to the LAW in Article 1 § 8 - not even Rand.

Until someone comes forth with a proposal that sticks to the Constitution - I'm not taking any of them as being serious. Anything short of advocating ONLY Constitutional government is just smoke and mirrors.

What about DHS?

I don't see DHS on this list. How about not giving DHS another cent until they fully explain what they are doing with tax dollars?

DHS refuses to explain domestic build-up


They seem to have plenty of extra money to buy billions of rounds of ammo, 2700 Light-Armored domestic Tanks, mobile check point “Pill Boxes" and grants to buy Snow-Cone machines.


Edit to list; 900 US military

Edit to list;

900 US military bases in 140 countries cut to 350 in 70.
Net savings over 10 years $2 Trillion.

What makes me the most sick is this:

Yes, most of these programs are ridiculous. But why oh why not cut one red cent from the military budget, foreign aid, corporate welfare, department of education, medicare, medicaid, or Social Security? The only corporate subsidy cut proposed was for sugar but real American sugar has gone the way of the dodo (Franken-corn is the new sugar). I know, I live in the old sugar belt. The cane fields are far more important to snakes, swamp creatures, and alligators claims the UN Agenda 21.

If you noticed any benefits that we actually get from the stolen money are the very items being cut. Roads are falling apart, the post office is systematically being defunded, Amtrak too. The average Israeli gets far more benefits from our tax dollars than the Average American. Of course, I will be dubbed an anti-Semite for saying it. Where's LibertyIsrael_First?

If it is not obvious to anyone paying attention that Americans are target no one right now they should wake up. And it's not getting better, it continues to get worse.

Is that the same Sugar Program where they buy the sugar at cost

And then have to unload it at a 10th of the price months later? Cause yeah, that should go.

Yes but American sugar is like the dodo.

Most producers have been forced out of business. The Everglades flora and fauna are more important.


*Require collection of unpaid taxes by federal employees -- $1 billion.

Are you freaking kidding me. I wonder how much of this is from Congressman and women, the exec and judicial branch? The Feds are on our arses like white on rice if we are late even just filing, and they can't even collect from their own employees. Honestly dude, this makes wanna "burn dis mutha fracker down". C'mon pookey.

nothing short of atrocious that we've been funding all this GARBAGE!


Where's the surplus, Ryan?

*Enter HEMP production*

Oh, there it is.

Hemp for Surplus!

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

My parents generation preaches...

on how important it is to pay your bills and maintain a high credit score. Meanwhile they let the government get away with this much debt spending of their grandchildrens' grandchildren money. It makes me sick
