But all those writers quietly forget that there are other ways to reduce Federal spending, such as elimination of Federal employees. Curious, no?
When MorganStanley finds a cost problem, they eliminate 1600 jobs. Hatteras Yachts, 105. Henredon Furniture and various coal-mining firms simply close plants, eliminating dozens or hundreds of jobs.
The Feds? Nope.
The giant sucking sound made by the Feds in the Department of "Education", the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Departments of Energy, the Transportation Security
That group, and quite a few others in D.C., are collectively the offspring of Jabba the Hut and Hydra. So long as "conservatives" forget that these departments and bureaus should be de-populated, "conservatives" will have a very hard time selling "entitlement reform."
After all, like charity, "reform" begins at home. DC needs a root-and-branch radical surgery, and now is the time to do it.
