You are on the right track with a couple of those items. DoD and DHS can be cut. Iraq needs to simply stop being a drain. We either tell Iraq to pony up to cover their backs or we leave NOW, no tapered withdrawal. Just "abandon in place" all the heavy stuff and fly out.
IRS is an interesting one. The cost $11B to collect $2.7T. It's really not a bad ROI. I know there is redundancy there but not as much as you would think considering they ARE in EVERYONE's panties.
But even if we get the budget down to Revenue=Appropriations, which is a VERY good thing, Clinton did it for several years, we still need to address that soon to be $12-13T National Debt as it's interest - $600B per year is a drain on the Revenue side and would be a GREAT place to start tax cuts when it is paid OFF.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
