A Federal Budget Cut We Need

Congress has an idea:
 American consumers have shown about as much appetite for the $1 coin as kids do their spinach. They may not know what's best for them either. Congressional auditors say doing away with dollar bills entirely and replacing them with dollar coins could save taxpayers some $4.4 billion over the next 30 years. The federal deficit for this year is over a trillion dollars.
 America is fighting several unconstitutional wars, has a plethora of unconstitutional government spending programs, and a large number of unconstitutional agencies. Yet, somehow, Congressional auditors are recommending a policy that is considerably more inconvenient to citizens in order to save $4.4 billion. That’s not even half a percent of the budget. Are they serious? Or is this just a ploy to look serious about budget cuts?

What’s sad is how they apparently are not able to see a really obvious metric for determining spending cuts: the constitution.
