Downsizing the Federal Government

March 7, 2010

I’m beginning to understand that the real problem is not taxes–it’s spending.  I hinted at that on February 15 in my post Why eliminate tax breaks?

How do you do that?  Obama’s so-called spending freeze, which exempted just about everything, was purely political theater.  It wasn’t too many days later when he pledged billions to develop nuclear energy.  We know he’s not serious.

But the Cato Institute is: They have a site called Downsizing the Federal Government. It is fairly new (October 2009) and packed with ideas. What a great concept!

Another useful site is Federal Budget. This site breaks down the budget into its parts and compares the last several budgets.  It explains useful terms like the difference between the deficit and the debt.  You can also see interesting graphs.  Can you find this information on government websites?  Yes, but it is very hard to find the clear and simple answers you’re looking for.  Surprised?

We haven’t seen this kind of discussion since the Reagan years and all I can say is “Bring it on!”
