Cut Spending by 5% across the board

Its hard to get everyone to agree on something, but at some time all the programs that we have were "Good Ideas". Instead of trying to figure out what to cut and what to keep. Cut every program by 5%. Maybe my numbers are off, but I think that would save somewhere around 7 Trillion over the next 10 years. I think everyone would agree that if you had a choice of having your program cut completely or by 5%, everyone would take the 5%. Once those cuts are made, the decision makers of those programs can figure out what they can keep or lose.



Idea No. 4817
