Government should be shut down until spending is under control. We need laws to cap the debt and the spending. Government should never be in the "red". Eliminate so called "entitlements" ( welfare handouts) as no one is entitled to another's labor. Remove social security from the general fun and only allow payments to those who paid in. Eliminate corporate welfare and other various programs ( bailouts). The people should only pay taxes on infrastructure and defense for our nation. Everything else should be left to the free market.
