  • I'd review every single dollar being expended in government programs. It would take years, but the system needs to be audited!

  • What Scuba said. First thing to go would be the unemployment benefits for the ppl who in all honesty do not want to work. This one bothers me more than anything. I'd also shake up healthcare big time. No more c-sections that aren't life and death and a hosital and dr would be audited yearly to make sure there c-secs weren't sky high. That too is also a sore subject with me.

  • It would have to be to go over and through every committee, commission and czar and start sending out pink slips. Most of what was put in in the past 2 yrs is redundant and wastefull

  • My first order would be to slash all salaries and benefits of Washington fat cat politicians by 3/4s and put that extra money into education and law enforcement. Unfortunately, that could never happen because the president really doesn't have that kind of power.

  • I wouldn't run for President would run for Congress can do more change there as an actual lawmaker than the President can do.

  • My first order of business would be to throw out all of this Obamacare nonsense, strengthen our borders, start sending illegals home, and cut unnecessary expenditures to help level out the budget before we become the United States of China.

  • some great answers before me!
    throw out Obamacare
    strengthen our borders, no more illegals
    love the pink slip idea, and cutting some paychecks for politicians
    definately review the budget and spending
    work on jobs for american citizens!

    and a few things i'd like to see:
    rehaul the welfare system
    rehaul the baking system (too many damn forclosures)
    see to it that more health issues are covered in some way (kids with special needs, infertility)
