    The U.S.A. Is A Starving Beast!


    "Starving the beast" is a political strategy employed by American conservatives in order to limit government spending[1][2][3] by cutting taxes in order to deprive the government of revenue in a deliberate effort to force the federal government to reduce spending. The short and medium term effect of the strategy has dramatically increased the United States public debt rather than reduce spending .
    The term "the beast" in this context refers to the American government and the programs it funds, particularly social programs[4] such as welfare, Social Security, and Medicare[3]; and does not usually refer to spending on military, law enforcement or prisons.
