800 million cut to the Palestinians, Israel's foreign aid would be cut by 50%, so that would be 1.5 billion.

There is no magic cut that is going to take care of the spending problem. It is going to take hundreds, maybe even thousands, of small spending cuts. You have to start somewhere. If the government cut just a little from everywhere, significant progress could be made.
