(St. Louis Tea Party)

Unfortunately for democrats 77% of Americans agree with the tea party, want government to cut spending.
CBS reported, via JWF:

A new CBS News poll finds that Americans strongly prefer cutting spending to raising taxes to reduce the federal deficit. While 77 percent prefer to cut spending, just nine percent call for raising taxes. Another nine percent want to do both.

Yet most Americans could not volunteer a program they’d be willing to see cut in order to reduce the deficit – only 38 percent could name a program they would support cutting. The top responses were military/defense (six percent), Social Security/Medicare (four percent) and welfare/food stamps (four percent).

  1. ‘Yet most Americans could not volunteer a program they’d be willing to see cut in order to reduce the deficit’

    Easy. Slice X% off all programs. Done. Next !

  2. I wonder if the Americans they interviewed who couldn’t name any programs they want cut are the same pampered, rich brats of elitists who couldn’t name a country that begins with the letter “U”….hint: United States of America. Maybe they should come to “flyover country” and interview some actual TEA Party members.

  3. The first one that comes to mind is the 100 and something million dollars to teach men in Africa how to wash their penises. I bet you can find 1000 more programs just like that to cut completely.

  4. How about opening government land to oil exploration/extraction and tax the crap out of the profits. Use the tax revenue to pay down the national debt.

  5. Do the czars get paid and if so can we include them in the cuts?

  6. EPA?
    Rather than programs how about agencies? Education and Energy next.

    Next corporate welfare. No subsidies for corporations. Sorry, GM, VOLT must stand on its owwn. Farmers? Just look at the price of corn. Few small farmers are left these days.

  7. Head Start

  8. The moose’s aides! Let her fix her own hair and face because the ones getting paid to do something positive with that face has failed. It would serve to be a scar crow in her own dam stupid vegetable garden! :)

  9. How about all the czars, the EPA, the Endangered species Act. Why don’t we start drilling? then we wan’t have to cut back so much.
    Talk about STUPID administration.

  10. Research grants.
    Farm subsidies.
    Department of Education. (The more we spend, the dumber we get)
    Department of Energy. (They haven’t produced any, or anything else.)

    Cut all departments by 5% immediately. All departments, all agencies, no exemptions.

    Then, start cutting spending.

    Remember when they were passing Obamacare,
    they said there was $450 Billion waste fraud and abuse in the health system.
    Since it was passed, you haven’t heard a peep about it.

  11. Stop sending our money to Kenya, Palestine, and other countries the fraud sends our money. Oh, yes the money they waste to buy off the Taliban. hahahahaha

    How about taking his vacations here in the United States.. Better yet send him back to Kenya and we can really cut the budget! :)

  12. Put the Federal budget online and suddenly The People will have very precise line item names to go with their wishes for spending cuts.

    CBS is being slick slick slick here. They wrote the ENTIRE piece so they could put ‘military’ as what Americans want cut.

    Can we update the 1798 slogan:

    For example, The GSA is awash in “stimulus” cash they don’t need to spend ASAP on frivolities. A real comfort to the unemployed who lost jobs due to more government regs, higher taxes.

  13. How about getting rid of the useless UN?

  14. Take away all of the food stamps and welfare checks away from the illigals and I mean all of them. Mexicans and muslims come to mind. I hear most of all of Detroit is on Walfare and food stamps!

  15. let’s start by cutting off all the federal tax subsidies to all those arizona college students that showed up for obama’s pep rally and acted so reprehensibly. let’s see how long these students can afford to stay a liberal when they are made to pay ever higher taxes and skyrocketing tuition costs. nothing cures liberalism better than taxes.

  16. Cutting 5% is just not going to do it. We are borrowing $0.40 of EVERY dollar spent We need to cut with an AXE not scalpel.

    It is estimated the fraud and waste in MEDICARE is $60-$100 BILLION! (http://www.google.com/search?q=amount+of+waste+and+fraud+in+Medicare&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a)

    WHY are we stopping it? Could it be because the fraudsters are “politically connected”? We need to stop the corruption and waste RIGHT NOW, as well as AXE our spending!

  17. 90% of Americans have ZERO IDEA what kind of CRAPPPPPPPPPPPP their money goes to fund.

  18. My favorite idea to cut costs is defunding liberalism.

  19. Get rid of the communist UN, get rid of the commissions, cut spending on the EPA, FDA, and others.

  20. Dump the following entirely: National endowment for the arts, education department, epa, energy department, hud.

    Eliminate (by allowing a vote of the people) most “non-profit” parasites. These unelected and unaccountable grant-writing machines must go.

    Eliminate the ability of agencies, bureaus, etc., to write and enact “rules” that have the force of law.

    Eliminate federal mandates which require state and local funding.

    Switch to a system of ZERO-BASE budgeting.

    Require justification and supreme court review of all government functions according to the 9th and 10th Amendments.

    Eliminate the capital gains tax.

    Eliminate corporate taxes.

    Institute a flat tax.

    Require a balanced budget.

    Eliminate the death tax.

    Privatize social security.

    Eliminate the welfare system.

    Scrap the idiotic obamstercare.

    No national debt, except to defend our country.

    Demand of each democrat an explanation of which part of “protect and defend our Constitution” they don’t understand.

    eliminate ALL societal and monetary benefits for illegal aliens.

    Hey! obamster! gimme a call! and btw….kiss my butt!

    P.S.: Since the private sector pays all public wages and taxes, simply eliminate all taxes from the public sector. Then, reduce government spending by that identical amount. Result: no net pay cut for those public employees still employed and a substantial reduction in the cost of government. For those who might not get it, a public employee tax is a hidden tax paid by those of us in the private sector.
