If our unsustainable spending is to ever stop, “…the bureaucracies’ hold on power…” MUST be broken.

Let the incoming Republican administration heed that “The most effective downsizing of government comes when whole agencies are eliminated or neutered, as was the case in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when Congress and the White House gutted the Civil Aeronautics Board and the Interstate Commerce Commission.” Hear, hear!

We have the blueprint…let’s proceed with a schedule.

Just shuffling the deck chairs on the titanic again. It will cost a lot of money to make these changes, all groups involved will accomplish nothing while it is happening and the end result will be a larger government. Yes, the unions will insist upon consulting resources because EVERY agency and department is so under staffed that they could not possible take on the extra work of eliminating and merging their own union jobs.
So this will cost a lot of money and accomplish nothing real. But it’s a great campaign slogan for politicians.
When all you have a bunch of office workers, you can only reduce costs by reducing staff.
