Some more thoughts while driving this afternoon:

Cut Fannie and Freddie. The mortgage market would work without the Feds; some say it would be better. Get a mortgage from your community bank or Chase. None of this reselling stuff.

Social Security payments be part of the safety net; their should be a cut-off based on income/net worth. Given our longer lifespans, the eligibility age for SS and Medicare should increase every few years.

No 'nationalized' health care. If people can't afford medical insurance than they should be eligible for vouchers to pay for it.

No energy subsidies - not for fossil fuels or alternative. Federal monies for R&D only.
