So what does Uncle Sam stop spending money on when everything blows up this week. Here is a list of potential solutions.
- Stop paying all elected and appointed officials in Washington. That includes the expense accounts. We’re getting bad value for our money.
- Cut back on social security and food stamps. Big savings here. Grandma doesn’t need the money. She just spends it on the grandkids anyway.
- Cut all government programs in congressional districts represented by tea baggers. They do not want the money any way. Just listen to them.
- Release federal prisoners earlier. It is very expensive to keep someone in jail. Actually I think Obama might just release anyone imprisoned for minor drug charges. Mass Presidential pardon anyone.
- Stop all international aid or welfare depending on how you see it. We obviously cannot afford it.
- Stop secret bribes to foreign despots that go straight into secret Swiss Bank accounts. Swiss Banks just buy safe US Treasuries.
- Tell Seal Team Six on the next big op they have to use less bullets but we still want a big win.
- Turn the lights and air con off in all federal buildings. Save money and it is energy-efficient.
- Tell the IRS to stop chasing accounts under $100.00 it can’t be efficient.
- Put the entire US Postal service on furlough. Who wants to get bills anyway.
