If I ran for office, whether state or federal, my promise to my constituents would be to cut one government program per month for my entire term of office. The New Editor reminds me that another useful promise might be to cut wages as well, to make them commensurate with the market sector. Of course, unlike the private sector, which cuts wages or the number of employees instantly in response to market forces, the government is completely inflexible and unadaptive. Because of the bureaucracy behind every hiring and wage decision, what’s done cannot be undone.Email This Post To A Friend
