At age 50 this is now a cycle I have seen several times. The economy is good, and government expands, There is plenty of money after all. The economy declines, the government explains that in order to maintain services they need to raise taxes. The economy improves, and government expands again. The end result is that taxes continually rise.

At present governments, federal, state, and local, are literally insatiable. There is always another good cause that "revenue" (more of other peoples money) is needed for.

What public programs and services do you want to cut, and why?

How much would those cuts represent in terms of overall budget savings?

Please be specific.
