Which parts of our federal government are wasteful and should be cut?

Although this question has long needed to be asked, neither Democrat nor Republican politicians have been willing to ask it (with a few exceptions, although those exceptions to the rule are marginalized and ignored by the pro-big government media). Both parties spend their time debating on whether to expand government by a certain amount, expand it by a smaller amount, (at best) leave it at the current size.

Obviously, there are many wasteful federal government programs. I don't think anybody doubts that. Unfortunately, as a famous person once said, "there is nothing more permanent than a temporary government program." Which current activities of our federal government, either foreign or domestic, are wasteful and need to be cut?

    Loaning foreign countries money for starters, Disability for drug addicts, and paying welfare mom's more for each baby they have. If our government would quit making it easy for people to be losers and live off of the system then we the tax payers would be a lot better off and our country would be productive. Sorry but to some extent the unions need to go to, expect way too much for far to little effort. Quit rewarding laziness for one and then set a cap on CEO salaries. Billion dollar retirement plans are ridiculous.
