Multiple answers above together I think. Woman's agencies like the NSA that are unconstitutional, increase taxes on the rich and on large multinational corporations. Funding should be increased to social programs.

Redistribute funds to allow for more funding towards research into green energy, better transportation, and infrastructure. Make sure these initiatives are not run or elected by politicians but by those in the field. This will increase the number of jobs and help the country in the long run. Reduce/cut spending outside of the US
