    Each Office has Staff and Facilities. And of course a budget.
    Why is the Federal Government involved in 70% of these? Would life in America decline if they just disappeared? You know each State also has a similar list.

    And yet we need MOAR money for MOAR programs.

    Shut down the ones no longer needed, consolidate where we can, see what money we saved and use it to fund relevant projects we have for today.

    Internal Revenue Service has a budget of TWELVE BILLION DOLLARS. Get that? $12,000,000,000 of your tax money comes right off the top just to pay a bunch of people to make sure you paid the right taxes. Meantime, with just a flat tax based off a percentage of the money you earn and spend, it could be done for
















    ZERO. And that would end all the loopholes for the rich.

    IRS: a real nifty way of creating good paying jobs for a whole lotta people.

    While I do agree we need to shrink and consolidate, the list is highly misleading. Take for example more than 30 times on this list are "Commands" within the DOD. They are not really separate offices or agencies.

    We are a country with 330 million people
    Why is surprising you need a broad range of offices to serve them?

    Fuck dat.

    End the income tax and replace it with NOTHING!

    Murica built roads, educated kids, and fought wars prior to 1913 with no direct tax on the peasants.
