Mia Love on Homeland Security
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.
