The problem here is that we have too many federal lands. The central government is only allowed to own (control) military bases and the ten square miles of the capital (D.C.). All other federal lands are held unconstitutionally. Congress should be forced to read the document they swear to uphold and defend!

One other point...great profits thanks to US Gov. payments. Money that should have been cut...but GOP does not want to attack their cash cow and gold goose eggs. We pay the price.
