This analysis proposes that the federal budget could be cut by $300 billion and brought back into balance by 2009 while keeping President Bush's tax cuts in place. Edwards details agency-by-agency spending cuts to return fiscal responsibility to government. As evidence that the government has grown out of control, Edwards documents the recent string of scandals at federal agencies and argues that Congress cannot properly oversee the $2.3 trillion behemoth. Edwards scours the federal budget for over 100 low-priority programs and agencies that could be terminated.
