Twelve Step Program for Swamp Spending Addiction

This is an  updated spending discipline plan that I offered to the Republican members of the house years ago.  They failed to act in any way.  I now offer the same basic  program to President Trump and Larry Kudlow;  Gratis of course.

 Swamp Spending Addiction Program

Dear Mr. President

This is how many Americans would prefer that you begin the process of ending the practices associated with what will be known heretofore as Swamp Bureaucrat Spending Addiction (SBSA) and beginning the process of cutting the reckless spending of our hard earned tax dollars:

1. Put the last existing federal budget on a searchable Excel spread sheet.

2. Use search terms like “museum, poetry, pottery, sexual habits, awareness, bike paths, parks , outreach, recreation, entertainment, fairness” to highlight line items that include such terms.

3. Once search is complete, select all, hit delete button.

4. Search all federal government  budgets and expense accounts and reduce by the percentage of GDP that is the percentage of the national debt. Note that this same procedure should be followed in each fiscal year.

5. Once search is complete, select all, hit apply.

6. Search for any item that includes the terms “jobs” or “retraining”.  We have full employment, retraining at taxpayers expense is not an option.

7. Once search is complete, select all, hit delete button.

8. Search again for the term “department”

9. Within that department search, highlight all departments that have no relation to national security and defense or tax collection and Social Security or Medicare, Medicaid maintenance, paying special attention to see that the Obamacare is highlighted.

10. Once search is complete, select all, hit delete button.

11. Search for all countries on terrorist watch list receiving foreign aid.

12. Once search is complete, select all, hit delete button.  You now have a new budget.

These 12 steps should be repeated every year until our national debt is beneath 4% and be used every year thereafter to keep it there. These steps are only a good start, and by no means preclude any further cuts or future cuts in the federal budget.

My office is always open.
