This is part of a broad conversation about downsizing government. It absolutely must happen. The next election and the one after can make a huge difference. The House acting on its Constitutional authority can change everything right now. Stop with the CRs. Continue to authorize piecemeal budgets until the Senate gets the message that they are not going to get anything else. Do your duty Boehner. Save the country.
And all those govt employees are sucking off the backs of taxpayers bigtime----high 5-6 figure salaries, Cadillac h/care, perks, benefits, expense accounts, credit cards, paid vacations/sick days, resort meetings w/ prizes and dance lessons (ala IRS).....and munificent pensions collected into eternity.
Since the Obamanation took office, millions have received an extra perk---security clearance---as govt wiretaps rose 71% last year alone.
Now let's meet Obama's recent hires---WITH security clearance.
