    Thank You Mr. Boehner and

    You keep posting silly items denouncing socialism. What socialist program would you want cut? The military, schools, roads, libraries, air trafic controllers, police, firemen, IRS tax collectors. Be specific.

    • Why not cut the number of military outside of the US. Per Wikipedia there are 369,000 personnel outside of the US. 157,000 are in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. That leaves 212,000 in other countries. Why do we need 89,216 in Europe, 61,992 in Asia? We also need to get out of Afghanistan. So we can certainly cut the military. We could also cut most of the IRS if we just came up with a simple tax system. What does the department of education do? Schools, police and firemen are the responsibility of the States.

    • The EPA would be a good place to start - whack the whole worthless bunch of them. Then on to the Dept of Education, Dept of Energy, and most of the Dept of Commerce. Then after repealing ObamaCare, you can take a huge whack out of the IRS (the thousands in place to monitor ObamaCare). Last but not least, most of Michelle's 450 personal staff members and Barry's unelected Czars.
