    Give your list of federal programs that should be axed and why...


    Let's see how much of the Fed USMB can think to do away with and how much $ we can save.

    I would like to consolidate all the public charity stuff into one public charity board. It seems that there are more administrative staff in all the public charity functions than folks actually on it.

    I think HUD needs to go. They brought that in during the Kennedy Administration, and since then the problems it purported to solve and only gotten worse. There is more decay in the center, more sprawl in the suburbs, and housing as a proportion of family income has gone from 20% to 35%

    Department of Education needs to be replaced with a simple test with centralized proctors. Plus something similar to the FDIC. Nationwide tests in English and Math. Schools get paid at the end of the year based on how much the kids improve over the course of the year. The 10% of Schools who get the highest level of improvement get 25% of the cash, the schools who get no improvement get nothing. The schools where the kids go backwards get closed and all the staff (including the cooks and janitors) replaced.

    The departments of Labor, Energy should get folded back into Commerce and Defense.

    BPA and TVA should split into pieces and be sold off.

    So failing schools get less money making them fail even further.

    Most Failing schools are a Dead end.. So to say.

    Let them create new schools, with a better staff and better access to Technology for kids.


    It's just like Screaming Eagles said, Like any business.



    It might sound harsh, but I can promise you, it will work.

    Federal Reserve
    IRS
    Dept. of Homeland Security
    Dept. of Energy
    Dept. of Education
    CIA or FBI
    Dept. of Agriculture
    DEA

    We can start there I suppose.
