U.S. Senate Candidate Reveals Plans for Government Cuts

Republican Senate Candidate Mark Neumann is on record with some of the cuts he'd advocate if elected.

He's calling for 82 government programs to hit the chopping block.

They include: eliminating ethanol subsidies saving $60,000,000,000, a three-year freeze on pay, bonuses for federal employees and eliminating limousines owned by the Federal Government, saving $10,000,000.

Neumann delivered his ideas to Senator Herb Kohl and Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin's offices Wednesday. They are Democrats.
