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.

lays out the pain ahead. Even after cutting the DoD in half.
