Mia Love on Homeland Security

 

 


Cut $758B from federal budget but don't touch defense

Love's budget plan would trim $758.6 billion from the federal budget, although that includes $212 billion in long-term savings from capping Medicaid growth and $87 billion from repealing the Affordable Care Act. It wouldn't touch the Defense Department, an area Love said she needs to understand better before recommending cuts.

Love's Democratic opponent, Jim Matheson, has endorsed the budget blueprint put forward last year by the Simpson-Bowles deficit commission. That plan calls for $200 billion in cuts to departments, including defense; controls on Medicare and Social Security growth; cuts to farm subsidies and a 10 percent reduction in the federal workforce--which Love also endorses.

Her blueprint draws heavily on the work of the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank based in Washington. The director of the group's downsizing project applauds anyone "who has the guts" to provide details on the budget cuts they support.
