    Default It's not a Shutdown

    It's a reduction in force. One of many good things from the Partial Shutdown are the unnecessary know who they are. We should make it permanent. 400000 to 800000 less government workers is a great idea. Now if we could do the same to State, County, and City workers, government would be right sized again.

    Kind of a toss-up isn't it? Either they work for the government or collect unemployment and sooner or later the labor market gets flooded with with a mess of second rate potential employees who
    needs to be retrained.

    You make it sound as though they had training or skills before.

    With over 1000 federal agencies in operation it's impossible for anyone to prove to me how the American citizen needs more than forty of them - and with over 1/2 of our country on some sort of assistance, it's clear as a bell that something's got to give. This is beyond unsustainable.

    There are 2.8 million Federal Employees alone! Can anyone convince me that they are necessary? Didn't think so.

    Amazon says they will take 70,000 of them. That should be right at their skill level.
