A legislative proposal Paul introduced on Tuesday would slash $42 billion from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's food stamp program -- a 30 percent spending reduction. His proposal would eliminate numerous other programs, including the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Paul said the proposal would roll back federal spending to 2008 levels and eliminate what he considers the most wasteful programs.

The Kentucky Republican said he hopes his proposal will spark a dialogue within the Senate about how to repair the nation's economy. </div></div>

We need more brave men such as this. (http://www.fox41.com/story/13911626/rand-paul-proposes-500-billion-in-federal-budget-cuts)

Obama won't let it happen. According to Gayle, that would cut into J P Morgan's profits!

The only thing he can think of is taking food out of the mouths of America's poorest! Great guy.


How about this.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collects 96 percent of the government’s total receipts, approximately $2.7 trillion in FY 2008. The vast majority of those revenues come from
taxpayers who voluntarily report and pay the taxes that they owe. The IRS has estimated the overall voluntary compliance rate to be approximately 84 percent.
Despite the voluntary compliance rate and vigorous enforcement by the IRS, a significant amount of revenue remains unreported and unpaid. <u>In 2005, the IRS estimated this gross tax gap
to be approximately $345 billion.</u> After subtracting revenue obtained through enforcement actions and other late payments, the IRS estimated the net tax gap to be <u>approximately $290
billion.</u> </div></div>

1 - How is laying the smack down on fraud equating to taking food from starving people?

2 - How can you claim that it is and then give FDR a pass for burning crops in the field to prop up food prices for his agri-backers during the great depression?
