We have to eat food for nutrition. We can go out to eat every night at an expensive restaurant and spend $60, or we can eat at home and have healthy food that we make ourselves for $5.
To me, that is the difference. When I look at how the post office is run, or any government program, they are going out to eat every night.
You still have to eat, yes. Cut the fat. That's the problem with our government. If we were more efficient with spending, there would be plenty for everyone to have what they need.
The problem is, everyone but the taxpayer has to get paid.
Cut spending across the board 20%, make people adjust, go from there. Ya, there will be less dollars and it will take time to adjust, but in the end, do you want to be efficient, or wasteful? When we are wasteful, we owe china more money. That's not the answer.
