How to balance the federal budget

Cut most of the Dept of Education.

Cut most of the Dept of Agriculture and all of the support for ethanol fuels and subsidies to farmers.

Cut most of Dept of Energy and EPA.

Cut most of Dept of Transportation.

Repeal Obamacare entirely and aggressively prosecute Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security fraud (which requires Tort reform).

Aggressively prosecute Housing and Urban Development fraud (which requires Tort reform.)

Aggressively reform military /DOD procurement and prosecute fraud. Eliminate “black” or hidden operational budgets for military/DOD/intelligence. (Note in 2001, Sec of Defense Rumsfeld announced $2.3 Trillion was lost/gone missing by the DOD, an amount equal to the entire tax revenue of the USA in that year.)

Eliminate the CIA and NSA and several other clandestine and secret agencies. Merge any necessary functions into a reformed FBI.

Repeal the Administrative Procedures Act, which will remove the regulatory/legislative authority of federal agencies, which was unconstitutionally delegated from the Congress to the Executive branch by the Act, which will reduce the size of the federal bureaucracy and reduce the huge cost of regulatory compliance paid by the private sector.

Private sector job gains by cutting federal budget

Build the border wall, enforce immigration laws on aliens and corporations, and deport illegal aliens immediately when found (saves over $100 billion per year, Robt Recter at Heritage estimates amnesty for illegal aliens “would cost taxpayers at least $2.6 Trillion.”…/amnesty-will-cost-us… (For example, specifically, in 2010 dollars, the lifetime costs of Social Security benefits alone to beneficiaries of Obama’s amnesty would be about $1.3 trillion.)

Convert most federal agencies into agencies to advise the states, rather than to administer and regulate federal programs.  A member of Congress is responsible for  keeping their constituent’s money at home, not to bring home the bacon from Washington, D.C., much less supranational agencies like the EU.  

Outlaw secrecy and spying by the federal government except in confirmed cases of need for national defense.

Open up government controlled lands to free market exploration and development of natural resources, to restore US strategic stockpiles and make US energy independent and an exporter of energy, which will in turn generate license and royalty revenues and tax revenue to the government. Return most federal lands (except military bases) to the states.  The federal government unconstitutionally controls most of the land and resources in the US and the government is generating very little benefit to citizens from this control.

Obama Oil and Gas Leases

Close almost all US military bases overseas and bring home U.S. military people except those protecting US Embassies and Consulates.

Eliminate and outlaw the sale or gift of U.S. weapons, military technology and mercenary armed forces, training, weapons and funding by government, corporations or individuals to other nations except in cases of declared war.
