CAN GOVERNMENT SPENDING BE CUT?

John Stossel discusses how there is widespread agreement that government spending should be reduced, but notes that this agreement breaks down when specific cuts are considered. The Third Way organization provides “A Taxpayer Receipt,” which identifies specific government programs paid for from the payroll tax on a typical worker. John mentions specific cuts offered by the liberal Center for American Progress, the libertarian Cato Institute, and the libertarian Reason TV. The dollar amounts are identified with graphics as John discusses them.
