"Title X Family Planning. $318 million annual savings."

Saves 10 times that in welfare and prison later. Anything that makes dead beats breed a little bit less is money well spent.

On that ENTIRE list that's the only thing I even had to think about. I thought about it. That's up to the individual states.
So to answer your question, NO! And it would be really really REALLY be great if some of those happened.

Essential Air Service I would be worried about. That funds most of the commercial flights to anywhere in Alaska other than Anchorage, Juneau, and Fairbanks. Lots of the small commuter type airlines that fly around the midwest operate on EAS money. Of any that I saw on there, that cut could actually hurt. Plenty of small businesses get EAS money.

After a quick run through of the list, I'd say carry on.

However, due to the interconnectedness of these things (those pesky, far reaching tentacles) that we can't immediately see I would further say that our lives would be somewhat interrupted.

So continue on, after all, we have to cut those things to find out what we cut. Sound familiar?

I thought the same thing, as I've yet to see any improvement of a beach that didn't have a legislator's house on top of it.

I didn't see anything on there about switching to some kind of flat tax, thereby reducing the IRS payroll by X%
