I can see where your wanting to go with this, but the implementation may need to be approached.
Government Aide to Foreign Nations / Trade - This one can be cut almost to the bone. We do not need to be gifting to other countries what do we
really owe them, why do we need to bribe and or support them? If the money is so we can have a base or an Embassy there then Pull those boys and
Girls home. As far As I see we have not lost a war why are we paying reparations or trying to keep other countries safe, we need to focus on the good
old US for a while. As for trade deficits where our exports are getting taxed more then those we import from, that needs to stop ASAP, we need to
set a policy where we match % for % what we tax incoming goods to other countries with the condition if they go higher we go higher, if they go lower
we lower after 1 year to match, if they want free trade with us then they have to go free first then 1 year we match. They go back up then we match
where they went to. If a nation is at war or "armed conflict / rebellion" we do not trade with them or who they are at war with until they have
reached peace, if they want American goods they can buy them from 3rd parties at the up charge of that third party.
1. Food Stamps = This one is a pain but here we go, Uncouple it from the farm bill do not let it hide in there anymore make it its own thing.
Enforce time limit and Income Tax reimbursement on it if it comes out of the income tax refund that sours the tit on it and people will stop suckling
it. A reasonable time limit moves it from a hand out Benefit to a hand up benefit. Maybe add a governmental community service requirement to it for
those that are not on disability. Random Drug screen mandatory, hey employed people have to put up with it for hard earned money, same should go for
welfare dole money fair is fair after all.
2. Disability programs = Regular checks with doctors on state of persons health and cause of disability, annual reviews if the qualifying problem
still exists then there should be no issue, this cuts down on the fraud. Otherwise Leave this Alone.
3. FASA collage money loans = This already goes to collections then if that fails goes to IRS let it stay there. Grants are fine how they are, and VA
benefits are basically Prepaid with time in service to the Government Nothing I can see needing to be cut here.
4. Social Security = This one is more difficult, it needs to be Sun Set with a few cut off dates, first cut off date stops collection from paychecks
for those who are below a certain age to stop paying into it, over that age you continue as normal. This forces the younger generation to have to
plan their life better, maybe even make it a required class for high school graduation like a Math of Money thing... The second date will be when the
last person paying into it starts collecting The system then takes it out of the National Budget directly until the last person collecting it dies off
(the Third date).
5. Unemployment = Enforce the Limits, include random drug testing, encourage partial employment situations where the person can take a lower wage
until they either run out of time or they find employment equal or greater then the job they had prior to going on unemployment.
There we go some ideas on how to approach the topic... But that is not my personal choice...
Switch to a pure 7% Sales Based National Tax, Remove the Income tax, Remove the Income tax Refund, what money the government collects from the sales
tax is all they get, they have a one year delay on spending from collection, this means the budget can be done ZERO based off the Previous years
Taxes. If the government can not afford something then it gets cut, not a penny spent over the total net income of the previous year. Bear in mind
though with the population of the USA and the consumer mindset we have there will be a surplus after paying for all existing programs with out having
to change much, and it can be adjusted down year to year until the surplus is gone.... Mind it also would require congress to mint what 20 1 trillion
dollar coins out of the surplus to reset the debt record to zero, note I said congress not the federal reserve.
There we go Two Solution sets.
Something to chew on
