But I’d be happy if we made progress on any type of entitlement reform, so I don’t think there are right or wrong answers to this kind of question.

We have the same type of question this week. A reader sent an email to ask “Which federal department should be abolished first?”

But if I have to choose, I think the Department of Housing and Urban Development should be first on the chopping block.
