Let's start by rolling back salaries of House & Senate members, forcing them to pay a higher out of pocket co-pay on all medical services and needs, plus sharply cutting their retirement benefits.
If government has become too big then let's start cutting right there in Washington DC. I'd bet two bits that the suggested cuts would NEVER happen.
They want to cut spending for education, seniors, etc., etc. but they themselves would refuse to throw any of their "benefits" into the pot to save even $1.
