3/4 ths? You’re an optimist.
There might be a couple who could go around and turn out the lights, but it would take them a several days with all the empty offices.
I agree on the alphabet soup agencies.
Are you still an optimist if your are positive things are going to get worse before they get better? ;-)
But yeah, I was assuming some of our GOPper's would be redeemable. And yeah, some of the FedGov's job positions are actually required by the Constitution. Can't get rid of them all, even if we wanted to.
Unless, you want to go back and revise the Articles of Confederation with our Bill of Rights grafted on to it... I'd be ok with that.
