I find this so frequently with Conservatives as they rail about defunding Sesame Street and a few other programs of no meaningful dollar cost, thinking that somehow that is going to fix things and when it doesn't come close ...

I think PBS is one of the best investments this country makes, but I also recall a saying we had when I used to backpack.

"Take care of the ounces and the pounds take care of themselves."

If there is something that is truly a waste of money, then the waste should be removed no matter how small that is. If you only wait until the problem is completely solved to start, you will never solve anything. Having said that, I would start with increased revenue (taxes).
