However MUCH United States voters MAY AGREE means that there MIGHT BE MUCH agreement.

B, C and E all change the intended meaning by implying that there IS -- for CERTAIN -- agreement. Eliminate B, C and E.

In D, may agree THERE is waste...and THAT the government as a whole spends is not parallel. Eliminate D.

The gist of this thread is to see whether one can appreciate the difference between may agree and (simply) agree.

However much means a large quantity; But it does not mean 100 percent. But, Agreement in B and E, agree in C, may agree in D, all mean 100%. However might mean even though or although but the addition of the ‘much’ changes the course of the intent.
May agree is something that is short of definite agreement. None of the choices other than A carries this speculative intent.
A is the correct choice.

A – KEEP
B – fact what? That is missing. Eliminate
C – Agree what? That is missing. Eliminate
D – same as C
E – No contrast.. Sentence after comma seems to miss a conjunction then. Eliminate
