Cutting Spending: Better Start Somewhere

The proposed Spending Reduction Act is important and worthwhile, even if it hardly makes a dent in federal spending, explains Dan Oliver (at American Spectator):

If we cannot eliminate the $167-million subsidy for the National Endowment for the Humanities, we cannot make changes in Social Security. If we cannot eliminate the Department of Energy’s $530-million program of Weatherization Grants to states, we cannot make changes in Medicare.

And if we cannot make changes in Social Security and Medicare, we will go broke.
