Believe me I understand better than most the DOE’s involvement with the military, but my point is that a civilian agency’s involvement was a political decision by the Eisenhower administration. There is no reason that any of those military related roles could not be reassigned to DoD.

...Except that in some cases it is easier to secure funding for something when you are not already defending a 700 billion dollar budget.

I could go with a sales tax provided the income tax was eliminated (repeal the 16th), and provided food, fuel, medical care and primary housing were not taxed. Those are needed for basic survival.

No prebate is necessary if no tax is collected on the basics.

The tax could be collected at point of sale, and even the "underground economy" would pay up on items legally purchased.

Move the other departments out of DC. Scatter them.
