    Here is a list of government departments, agencies, boards, commissions, etc. that can be either be abolished or privatized.

    The following can be abolished:  Department of Education, Department of Energy, Transportation Security Agency, Internal Revenue Service, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Corporation for National & Community Service, Council on Environmental Quality, Export-Import Bank of the United States, Federal Election Commission, Federal Energy Regulation Commission, Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac), Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), Federal Reserve System, Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, Legal Services Corporation,  Medicaid and Chip Access Commission, Medicare Advisory Payment Commission, National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare, National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, Postal Regulatory Commission, Presidential Commission on Election Administration, Small Business Administration, Social Security Advisory Board, Vietnam Education Foundation, White House Commission on the National Moment of Remembrance, White House Council for Community Solutions, White House Initiative on Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders, all Czars, U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, U.S. Court of Federal Claims, U.S. Court of International Trade, U.S. Tax Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

    The following can be privatized:  African Development Foundation, AMTRAK (National Railroad Passenger Corporation), Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, Broadcasting Board of Governors (International Broadcasting Bureau, a.k.a. Radio & TV Marti), Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Farm Credit System Insurance Corporation, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation, Institute of Museum and Library Services, Inter-American Foundation, James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation, Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Millennium Challenge Corporation, Morris K. Udall & Stewart L. Udall Foundation (Scholarship and Excellence in National Environmental Policy), National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Science Foundation, Northwest Power and Conservation Council, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, Peace Corps, Smithsonian Institution, Social Security Administration, Stennis Center for Public Service Leadership, Tennessee Valley Authority, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, United States Postal Service (and its monopoly on mail delivery to be eliminated), United States Agency for International Development, United States Trade and Development Agency, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

    Needless to say, abolishing or privatizing all of these government departments, agencies, boards, etc. would save the taxpayers billions of dollars.

    If a red wave does take place come November, then downsizing should be one of Congress’s top goals.
