Lawmakers are adding the final touches to a gigantic $1 trillion “omnibus” spending bill that they are expected to release next week. The bill would spend vastly more than allowed under the sequestration spending caps.
Heritage Foundation budget expert Romina Boccia says lawmakers should
eliminate programs that are better suited for management at a state, local, or private level permanently. Doing so would save American taxpayers money in the long run and reduce the size and scope of the federal government—saving even more money, and reducing federal intervention in local government and market functions.
She lists ten such programs for a list of ten programs that, if eliminated, would save taxpayers $10.2 billion.
What other savings and cuts do you propose?
