Cutting government

Obama says he is going to cut government. Many folks actually believe that he will. I do not, but for the sake of argument, I will entertain the idea. I am all in favor of massive cuts to government. I voted for George Bush because I thought he would cut government. The end result of his Presidency is that he did not.

I would like to see the Education, and Housing departments get cut. Every state in the US has the exact same departments that do the exact same thing as these two. I would like to see huge cuts in how our legislative branch both pays itself and uses our tax dollars for their own use. I would like to cut all farm subsidies, all federal welfare to both citizens and companies. I would like to see any money that goes to an illegal citizen be cut. I would like to cut all handouts to the UN at this time. I would like him to cut all money that goes to groups like ACORN, Planned Parenthood, and the NEA. I would like to see him cut these ASAP and then cut how much everyone pays in taxes and federal fees.

I have seen on AR posts where a lot of BO supporters think he will cut govt. Where do you think he will cut, and how much?

Kevin:

How in the world is he going to cut government when he is adding more programs and increasing spending?

I would like to have a mailing list of BHO supporters that actually believe this guy.  This mailing list will be worth billions of dollars because these folks will buy anything.

Oh yeah - he's going to cut Government. I think the first step will be the formation of The Department of Peace and Non-violence - a cabinet post. Nope not a joke!

Kevin - good points.  I expect Candidate Obama's list will not follow closely with yours.

Expect cuts in military, homeland security and immigration departments.  Somehow I can't think of much else - you all have him pegged.

I agree with you guys. I have read quite a few posts on AR where the person believes he will make cuts. I was hoping some of them would comment here. Thanks for the comments.

Kevin ~ The only cut in spending this liberal sees is a cut of our military. Typical liberal spending cuts. Nothing else, that is why they call themselves LIBERALS.

If he gets elected then Pelosi and Reid will do what they wish. Obama's concern will be to get re-elected, but Pelosi and Reid will not want to take the chance that he doesn't and so "change" will come fast and will appear in the form of massively increased Government; massively increased spending and massively increased taxes.

The only one I am sure of that he will cut is the defense budget!

We cannot afford this guy.

Kevin - I think he means cutting non-liberals and non-socialists out of government as well as cutting military expenditures (Franks is already proposing up to 40%). Additionally, probably cuts in intelligence and border security.

We dont need border security or the military. We can just talk to our enemies. Just like when you talk to the criminals that are going to rob you. They respect talk.
