Eliminate Government Programs that have no effect.

Why is the government sponcering so many programs that in the long run show no affect on what they are for? I would like to know.

 

Anyway, lets get rid of all the programs that have been proven to show no affect other than to just make you feel good they are there. With the resources freed up from those programs we can put more money into education or debt repayment and get this country right back on track.

Stop helping everyone else and help OURSELVES!!

The US is willing to spend our hard earned tax dollars helping other countries that don't even want to help themselves. It's time to stop paying foreign aid and save that money until we can turn our debt around. Once we get our debt under control we can revisit the idea of wasting our money on other countries.

Special interest groups

Make members of Congress where patches on their clothing like NASCAR drivers to show who is giving them special interest money. This would generate money for the government through the ad revenues and would let the public know what companies and people are financing our elected officals.
