Time for layoffs

Time for layoffs

All of this ridiculous clap-trap coming out of Washington about the fiscal cliff would be laughable if it wasn't such a farce and a danger to our country.

The problem is big government and big government spending. For the first time in our history, the public sector is larger than the private sector, and with all the babble coming from both sides, there isn't one word about reducing the size of government.

With the exception of the military, the dupes in Washington should immediately and arbitrarily lay off 10 percent of government employees. After that, if they would put the remaining unelected bureaucrats and Congress on leave of absence, we would immediately start becoming the great country we once were.
