Reducing The Size Of The Federal Government

All you need to do is watch Congressional hearings on CSPAN to see the waste, fraud and abuse that exists at all levels of the federal government.  They speak of billions of dollars in government spending as though it is chump change.  The fact is that more than 9 million people are either on a federal government payroll or working as a Contractor for the federal government.  Though there are some departments that should be eliminated entirely like the Federal Department of Education, over a five year period using normal attrition and retirements, it should be easy to eliminate 10% - 20% of these positions without cutting one federal program. 

It would save billions of dollars every year that could go toward reducing our $31 Trillion National Debt.  Yet, never, never do we hear anyone in Congress of either party talk about reducing headcount except for the 87,000 new IRS Gestapo agents that the Socialist Fascists (AKA Democrats) enacted into law.  If anything, there are often calls to add more headcount.  

Believe me if 900,000 federal employees and Contractor positions were eliminated, work would be prioritized and the country would be the better for it.  The nice to have stuff would go away and they would have to focus on the jobs that really matter and are closest to serving the American people.  What we have instead is federal over reach and intrusion into every aspect of daily life.  It is time to cut the fat and get rid of federal jobs that just don't matter to anybody, but the person collecting the paycheck.
