I have a plan to reduce the federal deficit. I can't take total credit for it, I formulated the idea while reading the blog the Chief. He was saying that Ron Johnson and his staff should refuse government run single payer health care. He is right, that is what the campaign was about and now he is replacing a principled senator who has been know to stand on those principles. But, this got me to thinking. Wasn't this entire election about rejecting "government run health care"? The people have spoken, anyway that is what the media says. The President should end government run and paid for health care for all employees of the US Congress. I figure conservatively that would amount to $400 million dollars in the first year alone. I haven't seen this on Eric Cantor's U cut page. As long as we are reigning in Congress, remember the people have spoken, maybe we can end their expense accounts. They are all being funded by corporations anyway so the fear of corruption should not exist. If they need to take someone out to dinner use the Congressional dining room.
