Eliminate the automatic increase in baseline budgets year over year (freeze them) and you would have incredible savings. For a 4 trillion dollar enconomy this would mean a savings of over 9 trillion dollars over 10 years. The government would not have to eliminate any programs. There would necessarily be adjustments to individual agency budgets, but it would be quick, a whole lot easier than what is transpiring now, and you would not have to raise the debt ceiling. There's something for everyone here. Simple math ...from a math major in college.
