oh what the hell, sometimes I just can't help myself. I went ahead because there were fill in the boxes areas too. I suggested decentralizing the DC govt.. we have the tech to govern from home.. all elected officials can have offices in their own homes.. govt operated secure *cough* skype-like meetings, sessions.. and since they all insist on a minimum wage..they can have just that. If they want a staff.. lettem buy one themselves.
Sell off all the offices vacated by non-constitutional "departments" and anywhere they are left with property, they pay the property tax equal or above what the locals pay for the same value property.
Oh.. no expense accounts or free travel with the office either.
The survey asked for benefits too.. so I went with cost savings, getting the elected officials back to the constituents they allegedly represent - sweeping the knees out of the lobbying business... and obeying the constitution.
I think the only thing on the list that I didn't do anything with is the Smithsonian - but I didn't look into it's budget.
