Good. They would still have plenty of money to take care of the people that truly need it if they cut waste, fraud, and abuse.

Another myth that government is fraught with waste and abuse any more than business is. There will always be some waste in any human endeavor and to pretend government should have none is ridiculous. There are news stories daily about government AND business waste. Not paying someone a living wage, restricting medical care, under-educating the poor, now that's societal abuse. Speak about fairness when everyone has equal opportunities in this society and I will agree.

Not true. Businesses typically work hard to eliminate fraud because it is their money that is going to waste. The pentagons last audit has $6.5 TRILLION dollars unaccounted for. Businesses would not accept such a large amount of the budget to go unaccounted for and most government audits have large amounts of unaccounted for money that businesses don't. www.thefiscaltimes.com/2016/07/31/Pentagon-s-Sloppy-Bookkeeping-Means-65-Trillion-Can-t-Pass-Audit

Ha, ha, ha, you actually want war and defense to be efficient when the politicians put all the pork they can into the military budget for bases and manufacturing in their districts. They vote to give the armed services materials and supplies they don't even want much less need. That's politics, not government waste. Check the votes of your own congresspersons.

You seriously need to take a look at reality. Government waste is across the board, not just the military. m.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/mar/5/golden-hammer-gao-reports-federal-government-waste/

They are not cuts, just reduced increases.

The conservative mindset is that people should be moved from assistance to self sufficiency, an idea most of us agree with. But then they savage education budgets, (which is the only way out of poverty) allow employers to move out of the country, keep wages at a low level, cut health care opportunities, and on and on ad nauseam. If they would only provide temporary services so people COULD move out of poverty, I would support them but their policies only savage and blame the poor for being poor and enrich the rich with that tired, unsupported "trickle down" hypothesis that has proven never to work!

Not true. They realize money isn't the problem. It is inefficiencies in government. The taxpayers should not have to pay for all that waste and fraud.

That's an amazing cut tbh. If the cuts are done well, this could be great for Democrats moving forward with efficiency.
