Can anyone name a major government program (or a small one for that matter) that achieved its purpose, solved a problem, addressed an issue and then was disbanded? Didn't think so, they all just continue to get bigger and bigger and, incredibly, cause growth in the population they serve. Imagine that. Chopping social welfare programs should actually do a better job of "fixing the problem" than continuing to fund them at ever higher levels. Yup, there will be some pain on the front end but, change is often uncomfortable and hard. A couple of percentage points decrease is chump change, we should have a goal of shrinking by much, much larger numbers.
