Rep Alan West (R-FL)
From what I have seen so far, I like this guy.
I agree with this quote too. Let nothing be sacred. I think if there is a lesson to be learned (because it hasn't been learned yet) is that making cuts doesn't have to hurt.
What I mean is that we could, for instance, cut the budget for veterans benefits. This could be done without cutting one single service for them. I would bet my next paycheck that with all of the waste in our government, we could cut 10% and never miss it.
10% of the 2010 federal budget of $1.3 trillion is $130 billion. Think we can use an extra $130 billion dollars in our pocket?
