Cut travel per diem

Federal per diem has become an entitlement for staying at over-priced hotels and eating out all the time. There are usually much cheaper options for places to stay that aren't being used, and since people are expected to feed themselves anyway, the restaurant-scale meals and incidentals are too high as well. If federal executives want to travel with the business crowd, they can pay out of pocket for it.
