We should eliminate all entitlements!

Besides the usual suspects, entitlements to research universities, religious and non-profit organizations should be eliminated. (Our tax dollars keep them in business.)

However, some of these entitlements are worthy and should continue just like entitlements that save  our children from homelessness should not be discontinued.

By changing the distribution (of funds) channels to cut the middlemen, state agencies with its CRONYISM.    Give directly to communities!   We may save money, cut waste and cut fraud.

Most importantly, drop some  unnecessary research that have no meaningful application to tax payers.  Let private money pay for special interest research, which can  then be beautifully bounded in  ornately decorated hard cover books,   preserved  on someone’s shelves.

We have tracking technology and  meaningful metrics for Wall Street, why aren’t we using them in overseeing some of these other entitlements? .

Tax payers are starting to listen, even those who, “don’t pay federal tax.”
