If the federal government is really serious about saving money they can start selling off land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The federal gov't owns 80+% of most western states. They can start by selling off the land that they lease for next to nothing to ranchers, loggers. Not only would it raise an immediate amount of money, but if we can save millions when enough land is sold that we can start eliminating district offices. Think about the money saved when all that administrative overhead is gone for land that very often just sits there.
Think about all the land that the federal gov't owns and is holding on to for no good reason, and then the money we pay in taxes/deficit to hold onto this land.
