To erase our massive federal deficit, this is my list of wasteful and job-killing agencies:

• The Environmental Protection Agency: We can do with out it for a decade without anyone missing them. Cut the EPA’s budget for 10 years, keeping only what is the most urgent of their needs. This agency has too much power and needs to be stripped away from its rule over state’s rights. The EPA has led us to dependence on foreign oil and the agency is a major job killer while impeding America’s energy needs leading to higher costs.

• The CIA and FBI: These act as a government within a government. Stripping a large portion of their budget and relocating the money into the Coast Guard and Border Patrol will not show less spending but will show more results for the dollar. This would also require replacing the current INS director who is too political to be effective.

• United Nations: Funding to the United Nations should be cut off as well as participation and funding of the world monetary fund which is just a redistribution of wealth scheme based on socialism.
