Waste in government and in their special programs (pork barrel projects) needs to be reined in. This waste is inexcusable. We have got to get control over the costs of our military contractors. There is a disincentive to pay market prices for anything and everything whether screwdrivers, tanks, planes or pens. The amount of waste within the Department of Defense programs alone could solve many fiscal problems.
I am in favor of elimination of many of the subsidies to Big Corporations including corporate farms, oil companies, and the elimination of overseas tax shelters.
I am in favor of reevaluating the millions and billions of dollars we send to other countries to attempt to purchase their “good will”. Our country sends an inordinate amount of money overseas simply to see the money wasted, absconded by criminals and despots, or used to purchase the weapons which are turned against us in future conflicts.
