    Stop all PA,except for those that REALLY need it the most
    Bring home the troops,lower the military budget,and use it to improve our educational system
    Lock up all criminals for life!Commit the crime,do permanent time!

  • Get sustainable.

  • 1. Raise the minimum wage so that people who are on PA can actually live without the assistance.
    2. Rehabilitate drug addicts instead of locking them up.
    3. Lower taxes

  • I wouldn't want to do it. I wouldn't want to be the one to clean up after Obama's spending spree.

  • There would be no such thing as earmarks or sweetheart deals.
    The salary for all reps would be dropped to the salary of an E5 in the military and froze, and all compensation (meals, travel) would be stopped.
    The VA system would be dismantled and completely redone in a way to better provide quality care to our country's veterans.

    ImKristen how would you go about reducing the DOD budget? And when you say bring the troops home are you purposing we close all bases around the world or just ending the wars?

  • BlueCollar:
    The DOD budget is already going to be,keepit at a level to keep us secure,just not as big a snow.And just end the wars!We can't close all bases...we would have WW3,4,5,etc!LOL

  • Immediate government pay freeze
    Immediate government expense purging
    Immediate performance review for all government agencies

    Course, that whole not being a Christian thing would keep me out of office anyway, so it will never happen.

  • After a pause while everyone says, "God forbid!", I would do the following:

    1. Shut the borders immediately, with the exception of American citizens abroad needing to get home.
    2. Freeze all government spending, immediately.
    3. Cut all foreign aid, immediately; we need to get our own financial house in order before we try to help others.
