I personally think ALL agencies can be reorganized and consolidated.
Department of Agriculture has appx 85K employees, how many farms do we have?
Department of Energy has over 16k employees and 100K contractors.
Department of HHS has over 64K employees.
Department of Homeland Security has 200K employees. Our borders are secure?? Not.
The ATF, FBI, and CIA also could use some help.
We have 60K troops in Germany, 10-15K in England, appx 60-90K in Afghanistan, Iran, and Iraq; could we bring our troops home and protect our borders? They would do a hell of a lot better job, and would be fighting off foreign enemies defending the soil of America.
Bring back 100% manufacturing back to America, steel, and textiles, and especially ALL foods. That would put our citizens to work with a great career they could feel proud of.
