The govt is it’s own worst lobby. What fed employee, repub or demo ,will vote for a smaller,leaner,cheaper govt ? With Obama creating more agencies and depts, and greatly increasing the staffs of all, the opportunity to reform the govt becomes harder and harder. The govt employees are the ones that vote and get out the vote. We must change the congress this year or it may be too late. Ever wonder why term-limits are so unpopular ? A general freeze on all fed hiring is essential, Let us all contact our reps and sens and demand these reforms.
