16. How can a conservative square the funding request for the wall with past demands that spending be offset elsewhere?

There are things that the Federal Government is supposed to provide. One of those requirements are security. I don’t have a problem with the wall. That’s part of their Constitutionally approved jobs.

But, let’s offset spending anyway, by cutting programs not specifically named by the Constitution, for example, close the Department of Education, cut off all federal funding to colleges, and end government backed student loans and grants.
