If it were not for the Department of Energy's long term USA energy supply planning, that started many decades ago, we would now still be depending on the OPEC nations for our oil supplies! These people deserve all the credit for our present situation, and can not be rewarded any too much for their 24/7 efforts. Yes, what an outfit they have so carefully constructed to plan ahead for our country's best energy-independent future.
Get rid of the Dept of Energy which has done nothing in its existence except spend govt money, get rid of Dept of Education and return that to the local level with vouchers so you have a free market competition, and get rid of teacher unions so we can get rid of the deadwood. Then, balance the budget and give people incentives to get off of welfare and the ones that stay on it have to do some kind of govt work and remain drug free. Bring home the offshore corporate money with a 5 or 10% one time tax rate and you'll have the pump primed and off and running. Oh, and get rid of Obamacare to remove the cloud hanging over the heads of businesses. Lastly, get rid of Barry and Michelle.
