Mr. President - the Congress is unable to cut costs. You have spoken forcibly against bloated government spending and the need to work toward a mean and lean fiscal policy. As the Congress cannot help in this regard, it is up to your Government in place to take on the challenge. Order an immediate 10% cut for all departments and agencies other than military and law enforcement. Not in ten years, but in one year with the clock starting today. I say excuse the military, but we well know that the Pentagon is bloated and there much waste there, tell Mattis to cut it to the bone, set the example. Let the Administration show the way! Thank you, Sir!
What happened to the line item veto that Reagan fought so hard for?
The self proclaimed King of Debt said that?
Trump did not run on cutting spending. He said he wanted to increase Defense spending bigly.
