    Wefare does have it's place, but I don't believe that ANY government benefits should be extended to those who are here in our country illegally. So.......I guess I would want any program that gives any benefits to illegals abolished. BUT, that's not the answer to your question because you are apparently wanting to know which programs one would want totally eliminated.

    I think the whole concept of the IRS should be eliminated and replaced with a totally different federal program aimed at a flat tax for everybody....... businesses included. It would only need to be a small tax, no deductions either -- for anybody. Those who make the most would pay the most, bit it would still be the same small percentage as everybody else.

    The IRS, a flat tax would eliminate 95% of the need.

    Medicare - it doesn't work replace it don't try to fix it.

    Welfare - it doesn't work and lends itself to a welfare state, solve the issues and eliminate the waste and fraud.

    The Post Office - UPS and / or FEDEX can do it cheaper and better.

    Farm Subsidies - 90% of these do no good. Most of them are pork for a specific district.

    Foreign Aid - let's fix what we need to here and not give aid to countries who hate us. Look up the government site and see just how much aid (humanitarian and military) we give out and to whom you will be shocked.

    i do no longer think there are any federal classes that ought to be eradicated! i've got confidence as a substitute we'd be forward in simple terms shifting the federal government off shore! difficulty is finding an different united states to settle for it.
