  1. I feel that programs the government has deducted taxes from workers paychecks for all of their lives, should be the last place to make cuts. Cut the programs that are not deducted from peoples wages first. 

  2. How about phasing out the ridiculous fees the FDA charges for testing of products each time until they’re either passed or not. That would solve 3/4 of the costs of healthcare right there.
