Heritage Foundation: Cut Entitlement, Welfare Spending

By    |   Wednesday, 26 January 2011 03:48 PM EST

We must first slash entitlement spending and then wasteful welfare spending to bring the budget back into balance, says James Carafano, assistant director of The Heritage Foundation’s Institute for International Studies.

“Cutting without common sense makes little sense. The first discussion we ought to have is, what is the biggest problem?” Carafano writes on Politico.

“Long-term unsustainable entitlement programs are the great danger to the economy. Next up: big government spending, lavishing massive amounts on discretionary programs from stimulus spending to more than 70 means-tested welfare programs.

"Most of these should not be funded with federal dollars to begin with. Most are substitutes for real reforms — like sensible welfare and education policies.”

Bottom line: “If we dealt with the real problems, there would be plenty of money for real federal responsibilities, little trouble in balancing the budget and reducing the deficit, and no problem in keeping taxes low,” Carafano writes.
