No the Republicans have not, cannot, and will not list them since:

1. The ones they want to close are ones assisting the poor; which are few and save very little money.

2. The ones they claim they want to close, like the mortgage deduction, are plums that the wealthy and real estate moguls love and thus are, to the Republicans, Sacred Cows.

3. They really do not have a list.....just like the mythical list of health care reforms McCain brought to the ACA discussions, or the mythical Reagan Welfare Queen, or the mythical Guiding Hand of the Free Market. All myths, just talking points that sound good yet have no substance.

Just my op though
