No, cuts to public spending will negatively affect the economy, and increase taxes on large multinational corporations, reduce the number of government officials, increase taxes on the wealthy, focus on ending tax evasion, reduce military spending, drastically reduce the benefits and salaries of government officials, and eliminate federal agencies that are unconstitutional.

No, my opinion is that there are several avenues that could withstand cuts before we approach public goods. (ie. Military). or we could tax offshore accounts who "hide" their money in other countries with less stringent tax laws.

I'm sure the government currently funds programs I would like to cancel or reduce and other that probably need more funding. This question is too vague to be effective.

Aside from increasing taxes on multinational corporations, ensuring efficiency at all levels of government, and raising taxes on the wealthy, the government should issue bonds whenever it desires to undertake a project. In essence, other than taxation, the government should "crowd fund" projects as well.
