BTW, Bob, we've drilled down into education. But we forgot the bigger picture.

Is education, Big Bird, and a few other trifles all you got? Those have all be pretty-well eviscerated already.

Frankly, the two biggest elephants in the room are Medicare (more specifically, medical costs and the inability to negotiate better rates for pharmaceuticals) and defense. Other stuff could help (e.g. maybe we need to kill Head-Start? I am not familiar enough to know, but you brought it up.) But those have to be tackled. They just do. Though that is more a matter of smaller budget, not necessarily smaller government.
