Great, but one could zero out defense and still not balance the budget. Entitlements is where we can make a difference.

They need the publicity. In today's MBA society, not exploiting a public event for all its worth is just leaving money on the table.

Story
Tagline
"The Cato Institute is the foremost upholder of the idea of liberty." - George F. Will
Introduction

The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization — a think tank — dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of policy issues.

Founded in 1977, Cato owes its name to Cato's Letters, a series of essays published in 18th- century England that presented a vision of society free from excessive government power. Those essays inspired the architects of the American Revolution. And the simple, timeless principles of that revolution — individual liberty, limited government, and free markets — turn out to be even more powerful in today's world of global markets and unprecedented access to more information than Jefferson or Madison could have imagined. Social and economic freedom is not just the best policy for a free people, it is the indispensable framework for the future.
