The statement "I'll cut government waste by 10%" doesn't cut it. The newspaper editorial board will mock you for not being specific. The uninformed morons ignore this as something that all politicians say. (Even democrats say this so we know it has no validity) And conservatives have nothing concrete to hold you to.
So Mr. Saxton, I'm suggesting some very specific cuts to be made. Sure, DHS Diversity Manager Marita Baragli isn't going to vote for you whe you say that you would eliminate her position but she wasn't going to vote for you anyway. And you can bet that the general taxpaying public will like the idea of putting her salary + benefits towards something that actually matters.
So please stay tuned Mr. Saxton. Every day, an agency, a commission, a job classification or a specific position will be suggested for elimination. (Yes Alberto Moreno, you will be on this list)
Also, everyone feel free to offer your own suggestions for cuts, just please provide a link so we have something concrete to look at.
