OK, Boehner, Let's Have a Number

Rep. John Boehner, a candidate for House Majority Leader, states his case in the WSJ today and sounds out an anti-pork message.

It is all well and good, but in the world most of us operate in, such a message without a quantitative goal is mere platitudes. So let's see a goal that contains a number and that can fit on a bumper sticker. Like:

"15% by 2010" meaning a 15% cut in total federal spending by 2010, or

"Smaller by Half a Trillion" meaning, we will seek to cut federal spending to $2 trillion.
