Firing half the government, at least!
I would begin that at a state level. I live in Idaho where our population CANNOT afford to support all the reps we have for each little town and village. Its insane.
Then I would reduce the number of lobbyists allowed to beg and bribe to get bills passed. Basically reduce the tax payer debt of supporting these people for life by limiting their retirement. I don't think a person deserves full retirement bennies for four years of service.
Go back to Reganomics: Reduce Government, limit welfare, don't allow social security and welfare for illegal immigrants, get legal then apply!
A year wouldn't be long enough darlin.
