This page will chronicle the on-going and very necessary discussion of where to cut the budget to get things under control in Washington. The first installment comes courtesy of Cato and includes links to budget-cutting ideas from a number of thoughtful people/organizations. I haven’t read them all yet, but I do agree with the premise of the Cato piece:
We will not get federal spending under control unless we begin a national discussion about specific cuts. And we won’t get that discussion unless enough members of Congress start pushing for specific cuts.
Check back for more. For now, let the conversation begin.
Update: Noting that the my first and only post on the subject of cutting spending was over five years ago, I guess it’s time to re-commit, so I repeat: Let the conversation begin–again.
